    NICKname [thank you!] updated the OP, sorted the cars by lowest price first (since it's probably what people are looking for), made a few corrections and additions.

    Are you getting a bit tired with only having a narrow range of colours available?
    By buying and selling a number of the least expensive cars, it is fairly easy to massively increase your stock of paint chips. This is a list of a few cheap cars in the dealerships that have a nice range of colours available.

    If you want to add to the list of cars with good paint chips, Please use this template:
    [Make] [Model] 'xx: xxx,xxx Cr - xx colours, [comment]

    If you want to calculate the selling price of a car, use this formula:(Selling price is S, original price is P)
    (P : 100) x 30 = S or P x 0.3 = S [I do 10% times 3 when doing it in my head!]

    Car manufacturers with interesting paint chips:
    Obviously the famous Ferrari red (Rosso Corsa)
    Fiat: try the 500 R '72 for a nice bright blue (Turchese Farfalla), the 500 L '69 for a bright orange (Giallo Positano) and the Barchetta for a nice orange (Arancio).
    MG: MGF and TF.
    TVR: great for a range of colour shifts (The cheapest for these is the TVR Tamora at 70,940 Cr, you can choose from 21 colours including colour shifts).
    Volkswagen: Try the Lupo 1.4 '02 with Fantasiagrün and softblue, also the New Beetle '00 with 11 colours, and the VW Golf GTi '01 with 14 colours are worth a look.

    Alfa Romeo Mito Sport Hot Lap: GT Chrome 10-W
    Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione Hot Lap: GT Chrome 003-W

    To Check:- Other '70s American Muscle Cars
    - Check that the suggested paint chips are not available with a cheaper car
    - Add details of the paint chips awarded with the seasonals

    To Do:- Add credits, for those who have made suggestions
    - Credits are missing on the Honda 1300 Coupe 9 S '70 (how much does it cost?).

    Please Help:
    For the brightest Yellow, try GT6 polarized 038 (how to get it? answers given below, it was an Anniversary paint), so what is the brightest yellow a non AE GT6 owner can get?
    Try Ananasgelb from the Opel Tigra 1.6i '99 (updated above)
    Also the Cizeta canary maybe even brighter, and it can be won from a prize car
    Another post suggests: Giallo Modena and Dandelion Yellow are brighter/poppier.

    - Zaphod2002 asked for a blue that matches his real world 2002. BMW calls it Fjord blue which is a blue with a bit of silver to paint his in game 2002.

    - Does anyone know the brightest white and darkest black?
    Black Raven from Cadillac is a seriously dark black

    - Is there a paint similar to the Fire Black from the MP4-12C?

    - Any other cars give colour shifts, Chrome or matte paints? (see the lists above)

    - McLaren does not give paint chips.
    - Racing cars do not give paint chips.
    - Cars with stripes and unnamed colours do not give paint chips.
    - Gold the seasonals for Chrome/Matte paint chips.
    - Buy cars in colours you don't have (rather than choosing the preferred colour you already have which wastes the opportunity of building your collection, you can repaint most cars).
    - There are cases of paint chips having the same name, but are different shades, or even different colours!
    - When looking at colours, don't go by the small preview, often it is nothing like the actual shade (and sometimes not even the colour) of the paint chip.

    I have updated the title, to encourage people to share their favourite paint chips, please state the name of the paint chip, and how others can get it. Thank you!

    I expect, that requests for particular colours, or information regarding paint chips will be welcome, and am sure that responses will be forthcoming!

    Nope :(

    I'm pretty sure everyone knows TVRs have some trippy colors. I think the cheapest model they have has the most variety of the color shift chips.
  7. KWZX10


    The toyota gt86 concept (the one with carbon hood) have nice colors too.

    Didn't cross my mind, how could i forget this :odd:?¿

    Thanks to the OP for getting this ball rolling, i've shown my appreciation through the medium of button pressing.

    My favorite manufacture for paint chips is oddly Plymouth (specifically the 71 cuda), there are some great metallic colors and gold/ bronze-ish colors for rims, and the best lime green (in my opinion) "Curious Yellow".

    DaveTheStalker, My guess is that the brightest yellow will be from one of the special GT paint chips, I have them and they are very bright.

    Edit: I went to the game and checked the yellows and the GT6 polarized 038 is the brightest yellow I have at the moment.

    A lot of the 70s muscle cars have a ton of vibrant unusual colours. The Dodge Challenger is a good one (or Charger maybe... I forget. Maybe both :p). Things like Sublime (bright green) and Banana (guess...) for instance.

    Shame too, I wouldn't mind Fire Black for a few cars.

    The coolest colour in the game I think can be found on an old Mini Cooper if this is helpful. Hawaiian Blue Metallic. Beautiful! I had a fleet of 350GT's and Corvette Coupes in GT5. I had to keep buying the bloody minis to keep supplies up!:lol:

    OP updated, thank you for all of the replies!

    No, only the colour you choose. So best to go through and buy all of the interesting colours in one go - otherwise it is really easy to get confused!

    Thank you. The LFA has some amazing colours, bit of an expensive way to get many paint chips. However, at least in GT6 the chips don't get used up.

    Yes, good call. I'll check and add some details later on. Added details about the TVR Griffith in the OP

    Thank you for reminding us, will have a look and update

    Yes, Thank you. My aim was to look at the cars costing less than 15,000 cr, however with the high paying Seasonals, the repeatable Red Bull events I suppose our flow of credits has eased up quite a bit! So I will look at the higher priced cars.

    Such a shame, I really like the orange!
    Thank you, yes. I think Gold on all the seasonals gifts another paint chip. I hear that they are not randomly awarded, but we all get the same one?

    Thank you. I read a post on another thread said that these paints were not so useful. I have them, and have not found many uses for them.

    You are right about the pearl paints, although I was hoping to find some paint chips a little more cheaply!!

    Is the matte black the same as the one that comes with the Lexus LFA? (which is a little cheaper!)

    Same for Pearl Orange, I have 2 and they different colours - one being almost red, the other almost yellow

    No. the matte black from the LFA is a little lighter than Nero Nemesis from the Lambo. Nero is my choice of matte black everytime.

    Marron Apus is another matte colour from the Aventador range thats worth getting too.
