Re: A Purple Panda

They should call this color "Pimpin Purple" or "Grape Drank". Absolutely fantastic.

Re: A Purple Panda

Yea, looking at the colours available for the 2012 Panda (I was buying 2nd hand) it was either this Purple (which is metallic flake rather than metallic or pastel) I believe, the only one with flake available in 2012, or the Turquoise pastel that I wanted. Neither easy colours to get second hand, everyone must have kept them.


If manufacturers want to make their cars stand out more, they need to stop charging huge fees for the colours. Almost all Pandas are white, and many of the 500s. This is due to the fact white is the basic colour. Any other colour and you'll find it's likely the most expensive option available for the car, new. Can't be necessary, and I think it makes competing with other makes harder not easier.


Could Fiat ever be the company to realise this, with their style focus? Probably not, but worth a dream.

I could not agree more. My new one is white! I will NOT pay 350 0r 500 for a different colour. Paint is not much different in price if you need a respray!

I think the UK colour is Infatuation purple! Damned silly name! I do love the colour though.

Silly name indeed.
The original italian name is "Viola profumato", nothing to do with infatuation

Here's mine, 2013, bought second hand this year.

The colour names are often different in the UK - it was definitely Infatuation Purple here.
