It is indeed a lovely color but remember, they may choose to switch out the colors some by then as they did in Europe after the first year or so.
I think initially, they had these exact colors when they first introduced the 500 in 2007 but probably by 2009, they had eliminated some like the brown and the mocha and the 2 greens and added a light blue and I forget what all but still had a fair amount of colors, close to 14 still, even now and my favorite blue, the Cha, Cha, Azure blue is now dropped in favor of a brighter version of that blue as introduced on the TwinAir. Also, in the UK, one used to be able to order the car in the Cha, Cha, Cha Azure and get it with the red leather interior, now THAT is the combo I'd have wanted. Oh well.
It's looking like red will be likely but yellow might be chosen instead, won't know until I see the actual paint samples etc.
Reds, blues, silvers, black and white are all wonderful and popular colors, and almost any make and model of vehicle includes them in their available paint options.
I'm in love with the Fiat color palette for it's distinctive alternatives- Both greens, both browns, Rame. I've never had such a difficult time choosing something as basic as color, but I've never had so many great options.
It's certainly a refreshing change though!
