A car is an extension of one’s personality, and to go by this statement, plenty of auto-manufacturers offer their cars in unique editions, variants and even hues to allure people who want to stand out from the rest. One such trend which has surfaced quiet recently is the matte-paint finish, which customers are very much attracted to. It’s not a standard hue that’s part of the usual palette of a car, as it is usually offered as either part of a specific variant or as a special edition itself.
