Chris Harris still rates 1M: "One Car To Rule Them All"

Not sure about his taste in colours though . . . BSM?!!

Nice find!

IMO - BSM looks the least aggressive or the 3 colours and hides the car's key features. AW is very pure & clean looking, VO is loud & aggressive, showing the car's lines very well. I'd be happy with AW or VO .... possibly even get AW if I had my choice over again, although the white fashion on sports cars may fade, or likewise for the VO.

Agreed black can visually reduce the lines of a car. On the other hand with a spotless car and the right lighting/angles, nothing beats a black car. It's the high risk colour.

no bias there!

Pity the 1M didn't have a few other colour choices. Thinking Montego Blue, Space Grey, Dakar yellow would have been worthy inclusions.

Have to agree Ian AW is the best colour and after 7,000kms i still wouldnt trade it for another car.....
