10 Color Shifting Paint Jobs

2014 Ford Mustang GT
#1.  Ford Mustang GT

This color-shifting paint job takes the classic Mustang and gives it that “wow” factor.  Starting with a black base, a 4 color chameleon pearl pigment is applied causing the colors to shift from orange to purple, to pink and finally to gold depending on how the light hits it.  There’s no doubt that when this Mustang rolls down the highway all eyes are drawn to its head turning paint job.

TVR Sagaris
#2.  TVR Sagaris

Seeing a TVR Sagaris on the road doesn’t happen very often.  Seeing a TVR Sagaris sporting a duo-chrome paint job happens even less.  So when I saw the picture above I couldn’t help but scream out, “They do exist!”  And my goodness, they’re stunning.  Those Brits really know how to make breathtakingly beautiful cars, the cool AF paint is just a bonus.

Evo X
#3.  Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

When I first saw this Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X all that came into my mind was a June bug.  Everything from the overall shape of the car to its unique blue/green color shifting paint reminds me of that bug.  All that’s left for this cars metamorphosis to be complete is a set of wings.

Audi B5
#4.  Audi B5 A4

This entry-level luxury car is one of Germany’s finest imports.  Seeing one rocking such an attention seeking paint job doesn’t happen too often, so when it does you can’t help but to pay attention.  The look is achieved by using PlasmaColor shifting pigment and Black Betty pearl pigment mixed into a matte base and then sprayed onto the car.  The finished look is amazing, not to mention, extremely unique.

Audi S4
#5.  Audi S4

Of all the chameleon cars on this list, this one has got to be my absolute favorite.  The car is an f-ing rainbow on wheels.  Mad props goes to the person who decided to take an Audi and spray it with a kaleidoscope of bright colors and call it done.  You my friend, are an absolute car genius.  I wonder if the rainbow look would change my 2001 piece of crap car into a stunning show piece?  Yeah, didn’t think so.

1940 Chevy Special Deluxe Coupe
#6.  Chevy Special Deluxe Coupe

What happens when you take a vintage Chevy and dip it in red to orange color shifting paint?  You get the coolest looking car on the hot rod scene. This Chevy is the epitome of cool and the shine it gives off is almost blinding.  When I look at this stunner, it takes me back to a time when life was simpler and car like this one were king.

Acura NSX
#7.  Acura NSX

First of all, look at that shift… It goes from straight up pumpkin orange to Laker purple depending on the angle.  That sort of shift is relatively hard to achieve because duo-chromes typically shift in the same tonal family because they produce a more vibrant and visible change.  Is it just me, or do you think of Halloween when you look at this Acura?  BOO!!

Chevrolet Corvette Z06
#8.  Chevrolet Corvette Z06

First of all, we’ve got a freaking American classic here and its name is Corvette.  I’ll give you a minute to take in all this iconic beauty has to offer… So now that we’ve acknowledged the awesomeness that is the Corvette, let’s talk about why we’re here:  the paint job.  It’s very hard to improve upon a Corvette when it comes to aesthetics, that being said, this color shifting paint job almost seems made for this car.  The dramatic shift from purple to orange is absolutely stunning and that shine tho… Nothing more need be said.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS
#9.  Chevy Camaro SS

It takes a lot to impress me and this Camaro impresses the hell out of me.  Not only did someone have the balls to take a classic muscle car and trick it out, but they took it a step further and made it all sorts of green.  Since neon green hues aren’t always the first choice when choosing paint, you gotta give it up to whomever chose this.

1967 Pontiac GTO
#10.  Pontiac GTO

Probably the most subtle of all the color shifting paint jobs on this list is this Pontiac GTO.  Although it is subtle is still manages to make a statement and isn’t that why you trick out cars in the first place?  The noteworthy thing about this GTO is that hint of indigo that only comes out when the light hits it just right.  It’s absolutely beautiful.
