Trend Spotter: Stealth Cars

Moscow has a lot of cars that look like the "fabled" 1980s Knight Rider.

These cars have lots of black all over them:  Black paint, black windows, and black wheels.  Except, I am noticing a new phenomenon:  Gloss is out and matte finish is in.  Basically, instead of the shiny, gleaming cars that we are all used to seeing, I am seeing many black cars whose sheen is as bright as graphite (pencil lead).

I think the point of these paint jobs is to give the cars the allure of "stealth."  When I was fourteen, I thought that was pretty cool.
