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 is known for its blue off-road rally race cars and the latest BRZ captures it perfectly. And hey, how about a bonus 22B? Look at that frown turning upside down already!
BMW has been nailing it with colors lately, specifically the huge amount of special shades available via BMW Individual Manufaktur. How’s about the bright and happy Mexico Blue, as seen on the M4 Competition Coupe here? With xDrive AWD, it should be able to provide a smile from behind the wheel, too.
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 Lightning
Blue can also look tough, evidenced by the Ford F-150 Lightning. The Blue Oval’s best-seller is going all-electric, promising the same level of practicality pickup fans demand, with the added bonus of zero-emission driving.
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.

Volkswagen Golf R
Look, the Golf R and blue have gone together since the original R32 launched nearly 20 years ago. It’s a tradition. The latest model features the same sort of deep blue hue we’ve come to expect on the hot hatch—and it’s still a sizzling drive, too.

A stunning example of a great blue paint job, the Aventador SV Roadster is an Italian beauty with a massive 6.5-liter V12 providing motivation.
Blue Vipers with white racing stripes have been slithering around race tracks since the original car was released in the ’90s, so it’s no wonder that the modern car looks so good in this classic combination.
Volvo has revived the C40 name, though in modern-day style, that means a crossover, not a car. The new C40 is an all-electric “coupe-over” that, in Fjord Blue, oozes that Scandinavian cool that’s long been a hallmark of the brand.
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.
