Which cars look best in orange?

And who does the best version of ‘orange’? There are flat oranges, metallic, burnt, and the pale variety with some odd ones here and there.

It’s quite a divisive colour, orange, at least for cars. Unmissable in traffic it often screams at everything around it, which is probably why impactful colours like orange are best left for the more ostentatious end of the automotive spectrum.

Mazda have just released their very orange 30th Anniversary Edition on the MX5 with a whole bunch of tasty bits. Does the orange suit it? Not so sure. Perhaps a nice BRG would’ve been nicer.

So who wears orange best?
