Blue Monday is said to be the most depressing day of the year, when the most people are feeling down in the dumps.
It’s hypothesized Blue Monday exists for a variety of reasons including Christmas debt, failed New Year’s resolutions and the cold grip of winter really setting in. So, in an effort to cheer you up, we’ve scoured the automotive world looking for cars that look hot, even painted in the coldest color, blue.
Prepare yourself to be hit by a wave of cheer as you check out these 10 vehicles that look incredible in blue.
Subaru BRZ STI Performance Concept
Subaru is known for its blue off-road rally race cars and this BRZ STI Performance Concept captures that heritage perfectly. Except, rather than tearing up dirt roads, this car is all about the asphalt. Hopefully Subaru can find it in the budget to actually build this car.
Ferrari 488 Spider
When the sheet was first pulled from the Ferrari 488 Spider at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the car was finished in a gorgeous rich blue. Under the blue “hood” of this beauty is a turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 making 660 ponies and 561 lb-ft of torque, with max power coming on at 8,000 rpm.
Pagani Zonda Tricolore
This stunning version of the Zonda uses a special carbon-titanium weave to make up its body, which is finished in a beautiful blue lacquer. A tribute to the Italian flag is seen in two stripes on the hood, which houses a 7.3-liter V12 engine.
There’s nothing sad about that.

Ford F-150 Raptor
Blue can also look tough, evidenced by the new 2017 Ford Raptor. Easily the most hardcore off-road ready truck money can by from an OEM, the Raptor is dialing up its performance in 2017 with an even more powerful 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 and a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
Buick Avista Concept
Buick surprised us at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show with this beauty, the Avista Concept. Essentially a Chevy Camaro with new bodywork and a twin-turbo V6, the Avista is looking to prove that Buick can make youthful, sexy cars.
No need for Zoloft here.

Audi E-Tron Concept
Teasing an all-electric vehicle of the future, the Audi E-Tron Concept can drive 311 miles on a single charge and will recharge in 50 minutes. But most importantly, it’s finished in an electric blue paint that is stunning and even includes blue accents in the headlights.
Because blue is the new green.

We finish the list with this stunner from Acura, the new NSX. In red and black, the NSX still looks rather menacing, but it is blue that brings out the car’s true character.
