A study done by Uswitch.com from data made available from the Internet Game Cars Database breaks out the top 10 “real life” cars and the most popular colour for cars in video games. Top of the list? The Ford Crown Victoria Mk2. This shouldn’t really be a surprise as this iconic vehicle not only shows up as a police car in games but also as taxi cabs, particularly in games set in NYC. As a result, yellow ends up being the most common colour for this vehicle in games, not the black and white many of us may be accustomed to seeing on this model.
Next up is another Ford, the mustang Mk1. Out of the games currently analyzed at IGCD.net, it shows up a whopping 545 times. The 1965 model year is most popular, with red being the colour of choice. In third place is the Nissan Skyline Mk1, a popular street racing model that’s appeared in everything from video games to the Fast & the Furious movies (driven by Paul Walker’s character).
As far as colour goes, the most popular was indeed yellow, followed by blue and red. Check out the full top ten car model and most common car colour list in the graphic below!
