At DTW we pride ourselves on our rigorous analysis and our capacity to separate the news from the hype.
Having looked at literally hundreds of thumbnail-sized photos I have been able to sort out the top six yellowest cars from all the other cars that weren´t yellow. I had to be careful though as one yellow car that came up in the search was from 2014. I didn´t include that. By the way, one of these cars, the Mila Plus, is the work of Magna, the Austrian Tier 1 supplier.
In at number six (above) we have the BMW M4 coupe. It´s really busy, this car. The last version was clean and almost Italianate (when the Italians don´t do that any more). I found myself admiring the outgoing car but this one seems like the aftermarket guys from the year 2028 have got to the car already. Is BMW trying to pre-empt the horrible body kits this car will one day be fitted with?
In at number five is the Pininfarina Sergio. In many ways this is far nicer than anything Ferrari now make. I could be persuaded to be seen in this whereas the red cars would make me feel as embarrassed as standing buck naked at someone´s funeral.
At four is what looks like a digital rendering. The on-lookers do look puzzled while the man on the left looks like he is regretting something.
At number three we have one of the few Lamborghinis we have ever shown at this site.
And number two is…
And the most yellow car on view at Geneva this year is the Magna Mila Plus. Again, more appealing than Ferrari and all other supercars now on sale. This has shades of the nice sculpting done in the 70s in Detroit. I get the feeling this was hand-crafted.
There wasn´t room on the list for another car so it has to be shown here, the one that didn´t make the cut, the seventh most glaring example of a yellow show car:
And this also didn´t get onto the list (proving that we didn´t just look at six yellow cars and write them down in random order):
