I really think it is Aqua Blur because it has so many colors that change as the angle of light changed. It therefore shows a different color at every point because the angle is different from all the points around it. I hope that makes sense to at least some of you so I am not the only one with such an opinion.

The question should be revised to, "other than the colour of your own vehicle, what is your favourite colour". My answer would be Aqua Blur.

I have two SSR's, my original 04 Slingshot and my 06 AquaBlur 6 Speed. The Blur is a much better SSR with the 6 speed and the acceleration and the handling, Chrome package, more beautiful iridescent color at every level, in every way. AND yet, when I go out to the parking lot at then end of the day, I look for my Slingshot Yellow. It screams SSR, all the fun that the R is is magnified by the yellow color that shows its lines of so well.

No one at works says a word when I drive my Blur. Everyone notices the Slingshot Yellow. My Security Team watches over the Yellow like it it theirs to protect, Don't think they even notice the AquaBlur. All I get is "Where's your Yellow Truck?"

I really love the Red R's, it is gorgeous in Red. Black is Sexy and Hot; Silver is Classy Looking, but subdued somehow. Purple? I truly believe that might be what took a serious Hot Rod and made a Cartoon out of it.
I've never met DOOPHUS, probably never will, & sometimes in the back of my mind after reading countless posts I know I really hate it when Doophus is right,
But, DOOPHUS is right. Yellow may not be the fastest, but it sure shows off the SSR better than any of the other colors.

Personally Aqua Blur is #1 due to the Pearl in the paint,
I would have to see a line up of one of each color
all at the same time to honestly vote. I'm too simple minded.
But I believe the other opinions of a shiny well cared for R is best.

I would have to agree with Blue Streak. The different angles in which the light hits the Aqua Blur, really shows off body lines. Not that I just happen to have a blur
