After watching this video, it made me want the car even more, but now Im undecided on what color.. They all look so good.. The red & black really look cool on the highway.
I dont know what everyone is complaining about with the exhaust note.. I think it sounds awesome from inside the cabin on this vid..

Good find; it helped to see all of the colors in this and the other vid you posted, thanks.

The black looks cool in good lighting and from the rear generally, but to me it kills the lines on the front and makes the grille blend-in too much. I feel like it makes the car look more generic unless the lighting is really good, so I don't want it personally. But it turns out I'd be happy with any of the others (except matte gray because I'm lazy and like paid car washes), which may be helpful with trying to secure one by the end of the month.

Agreed, thanks for posting this. I found this extremely helpful in deciding what color I wanted.

VITAMINC: was out from the get go for me, just not my thing.
WHITE: we can't tint in Vermont, so that basically means the white color loses its best asset.
RED: looks nice, except for where the red tail lights are, they blend in, really takes a lot away from the car for me.
BLUE: I like the blue alright, but in the sun it almost looks purple, which is a no go.
BLACK: it looks great from behind cause it blends better with the bottom, but you loose a lot of the details and slickness when it comes to the side of the VT and the front grille.
GREY MATTE: looks best to me, but I live in VT and we have winter for 6 months, no way I can care for that paint appropriately.
SILVER: Based on my answers above, I find myself leaning towards the silver out of necessity. I don't like silver on cars in general, but it seems to be the only color of the VT that doesn't have a dramatic setback that I can see.

^Funny, when I first started seeing pics of the car and imagining the colors based on the NA version and then the simulated colors from the price & build feature, I felt pretty much the same way (with the exception that I like silver on quite a few cars). But after living with the thing for a couple weeks on Forza Motorsport 4 and seeing actual pictures with the reviews and now this video, I've really warmed up to a lot of them. Maybe I only needed time, or maybe I had to see them in natural lighting, but black and Matte Gray are the only one's I won't take. I definitely like it more in the neutral or warm colors, so blue is my last choice, but it still looks good and I'm impatient enough where I'd be glad to have one if that's what was available.

Wow, nice job on finding that vid, thanks so much for posting it!
I have to say, the more I see the VT, the more I like it...

I think color has got to be one of the most subjective things, the key is, if you are buying a new car, absolutely get your 1st choice in color so you can fully enjoy it
I think the Silver is a good choice, and I understand your rationale

For me though
VITAMIN C- one of the best color choices to date, go loud or go home in my book
BLACK- never in a million year, too bland, all black causes design details to be lost into the body color
26.2- come on Hyundai, drop that matte grey and give us the yellow from the plane V

Can't tint in Vermont? I'm so sorry, that does suck!

very nice video, seen it before but very nice.

Every time I see more media or do another photochop with the VT in it, I get more and more anxious to own one.

When I first heard about the colors, it was Grey or White, no exceptions.. After seeing all the colors, I don't think I would mind any of them. I REALLY don't like red cars, but I saw a N/A V at Target the other day in Boston red and the red looks REALLY nice.. really deep red, not the typical cherry apple style..
