    The classic which colour is fastest re-thread.

    Just a bit of daft 'banter' (is that word legal?)....

    but ok think this better not turn into a poll or i'm history (with one vote!)

    But which colour is fastest on a b6?

    I used to have a scooby-legacy and the perceived wisdom was that silver was fastest.

    It is universally held that red Porsche's are fastest.

    <Pinocchio on>I've never had a silver legacy or a red Porsche<Pinocchio off>

    Now my thinking is that green b6's must be the fastest of all because you never ever see them (except photograph's of mine)
    and therefore THEY MUST move faster than the human eye can detect


    So which colour is fastest

    I'll think of a suitably audiesque prize for the best reply.....
    cheers
    And

    Dolphin grey, especially when it's just been detailed and the paint work is silky slippery smooth, which obviously means less drag over the car thus making it fastest.


    Thats that, now thread closed

    Well red is obviously the fastest colour, goes without saying. You've mentioned Porsches but why are so many Ferraris red too, it's not just coincidence...

    You said about the Legacy? I'm presuming you mean a GTB? I always thought the white ones were the quickest

    'Mauritius Blue' is the fastest cause it's named after the fastest tidal wave ever recorded in the Mauritius ocean.

    Obviously white is the fastest because it was so fast the painters didn't get a chance to put a colour on it......

    Mines black by the way and definatley the second fastest.
