Red always seems to catch the eyes of car enthusiasts. The color red can be luxurious sporty, simple or complex. It can be a paradox. But one thing’s for sure…it is always vibrant and radiant. There were countless examples of various shades of red at the June EyesOn Design car show located at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House located in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan to benefit the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.
Solid reds have been popular throughout time, especially on trucks. (pictured above: 1952 Chevy)
Color popularity can be cyclical and we are often reminded that what was once old is new again. Some of the iconic reds throughout automotive history were on display at this prestigious car show.

The vehicles looked spectacular in their lively shades.
At Axalta, we use new technologies to expand the gamut of color, but we are always respectful of the heritage of color coatings. The capability to offer more chromatic and sparkling reds makes Axalta’s Automotive Color of the Year 2015, “Radiant Red” stand out. Future colors will continue to surprise and delight us on new vehicle shapes and sizes.
