    Sometimes a manufacturer will discontinue a colour if it performs very badly, or exceptionally well from a sales perspective. It could also be to protect second hand values should it be deemed that a particular colour has saturated the market.

    They may also pull a colour that is known to be troublesome in application or if their supplier can’t produce the required volumes.

    Finally, it’s one of the easiest differentiators between a current and new model year, requiring less technical and production considerations than say major, or even minimal spec changes.

    No more Mystery Blue? Bugger. It'll put the value of current ones up. Everyone knows they're much faster than lesser colours.

    Doesn't bode well for me ever switching to a MK3 "come see our Cupra's sir... colours certainly... we've got them both".

    They dropped desire red too. They also briefly ditched silver but that returned with MY20.

    And apparently it’s leaving once again before the end of the year. According to my dealer anyway, there’s a note on the paint code when ordering giving the last possible production week it’s available. 47 maybe. Can’t remember fully.

    I'd happily have paid extra to have desire red or mystery blue. It's simply not an option anymore. :(

    I remember when my parents bought their volvo, there was hundreds of colours to choose from.

    Large amounts of Mystery Blue CUPRA’s around so not sure on the value of current ones staying up.

    Burnt Orange would hold its value as there aren’t many of them around.

    Best colour (and yes I’m biased) is Desire Red and I for one am happy it’s no longer available as I’m not keen on seeing other cars like mine .
