It depends what are you looking for.

In dark colors the car definitely looks more aggressive & imposing, while bright colors are more elegant (the lines, +/- surfaces and sharp creases are more exposed; there is more play of light; flame surfacing works better in bright colors).

The best compromise between aggressive & elegant is a medium grey color, or some medium blue. Also some golden bronze color looks OK.

Anyway, you have to see the car in person in various colors, and then you'll decide what you prefer. Pictures can be very deceptive.
