10 Audis That Show Why Custom Paint Is Always Best

Don't settle for a standard color. Go bold with one of these amazing cars.

One of our favorite options that we love to recommend on expensive cars is a custom paint job. Manufacturers sometimes have a different name for this option. For example, Porsche's is called paint-to-sample and Audi's is called Audi Exclusive Paint. We have shown off some of our favorite Audi colors over the years, but thanks to the exclusive paint option, all of them are still available for a cost. We did some digging and we found 10 brand new Audi models that have all been optioned with an amazing shade of Audi Exclusive Paint.

Our first car is a 2017 R8 V10 that has been painted in a lovely shade of Solar Orange. Even though Audi does offer the R8 in several bold colors such as Dynamite Red and Vegas Yellow, we love the way that the orange really pops on this car. This car is currently for sale for $198,400 at Audi Valencia in California.

Next we have a pair of 2018 Audi RS7 Performance models, both painted in unique shades of blue. The first car is painted in a famous Porsche color known as Mexico Blue. The car is currently for sale at Audi Central Houston for $141,832. The second car is painted in a darker shade of Mercato Blue and is currently for sale at Sloane Porsche Audi in Warrington, Pennsylvania for $146,725.

The second set of RS cars that we found was a pair of RS3 sedans, which are both painted in very different shades of green. This first RS3 is painted in a bright shade of Viper Green and is currently for sale at Audi of Tampa in Florida for $74,225. The second car is painted in a darker shade of Deep Green Pearl Effect and is currently for sale for $70,825 at VW Audi of Naples.

The final RS model on our list is a 2018 TT RS that is painted in a Merlin Purple. The car is currently for sale for $77,025 at Audi North Miami in Florida. The TT RS is currently the most rare RS model in the US, so finding one with an Audi Exclusive color like this one will not be easy.

The hardcore RS models are not the only cars that can be ordered with Audi Exclusive paint. We found several S models, including this 2018 S4 sedan, with some interesting paint options. This 2018 S4 is painted in the same Solar Orange that was found on the R8. The car is currently for sale for $72,025 at Audi Morton Grove in Illinois.

Finally, we managed to find a trio of 2018 Audi S5 models with Audi Exclusive Paint options. The first two are S5 Sportback models, which means that they have two rear doors and a fastback hatch design. The first car is painted in Nardo Grey, a popular Audi RS color that is not normally available on the S5. The car is currently for sale at Mentor Audi in Ohio for $72,800. The second Sportback is painted in Sprint Blue and is currently for sale at Audi West Palm Beach in Florida for $72,275. Finally, we also found an S5 Coupe painted in Alpine Green at Audi Escondido in California for $70,475.
