Dodge is bringing back Plum Crazy paint on its new Challenger and Charger models for 2016. In recent years, we’ve seen an influx of white cars being sold, but now purple is taking over, with the Volkswagen Scirocco, the Golf, and Audi RS6 Avant among others going more ambitious with their stock paint finishes.
