The comeback kings

Well this must be the comeback of the century! White cars. A few years ago you couldn’t give them away, nobody wanted them, they were the lowest of the low and the only reason car makers pushed them out was because white paint must have been cheaper to use.

Now we find ourselves in the strange position of white cars earning a £200 additional premium in the trade. Meaning, if it’s white it’s already £200 more expensive than the same model in a different colour.

Call it fashion but if I’d said white cars could fetch a premium a few years back I would have been burned as a witch.

    Size is everything, though. On an Audi A3 white looks great. With an A8 it only works on the Corniche in Abu Dhabi!
