If Henry Ford were alive today he may have had to rework his famous comment about the colour of his cars. It seems that on the production line as well as on the catwalk, brown is the new black.

According to the car paint supplier, PPG, red will retain its popularity, but beige, caramel and yellow will also feature as the prominent car colours by 2000.

A spokesperson for PPG said: "Women's fashion has always led the way when it comes to colour trends, closely followed by the world of interior design. These patterns emerge next in the car market."
