Motorsport historians debate the origins of McLaren orange. The team picked a distinctive identity when racing teams ceased to run in national colours in the 1960s -- fans could spot the cars and it worked well on colour TV sets.

A strong argument is that the colour was a standard pigment used for glass fibre coatings known as Papaya Orange. Perhaps the donkey had a more exotic taste than for carrots.
