What do you think of the (flat) "hot rod black" paint appearing on new supercars etc.

I've seen a few pics of flat black on restomods, trucks etc. It seems like the fashionable thing to do now, albiet a 'trendy' rip-off of the hot rods of old.

The only one, I'll give credit to, is the lambo, because they were trying to make the car look like a stealth fighter.

Anyway some pics, what do you guys think

Agree with Poncho. Fads come and go. I did it on a couple of older trucks because the bodywork wasn't worth the time. Primer/semi-gloss hides flaws fairly well, and is easy to lay down, and touch-up. It also opens people's imagination as to how they would finish it. I've known people that didn't buy a car because of the color...even though they liked EVERYTHING about it, EXCEPT the color. Making something look almost finished draws more positive attention, than a car painted the "wrong" color.
