* The Midland Railway and its successor, the LMS Railway, painted passenger engines red, such as [[http://www.nrm.org.uk/globalmedia/CD050127_2.png No. 1000]] and the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fa/Duchess_of_Hamilton_streamlined_-_2009-05-19.jpg Duchess of Hamilton]].

** [=McLaren=] used to have a different color scheme, until they averted the trope by removing painting from the car which [[BoringButPractical made it faster]].
* The 1971 Spa 24 Hours ended up as if an Ork racing team had gone rampant. The Mercedes-Benz tuner AMG took the biggest luxury sedan below the Rolls-Royce league in those days, the Mercedes 300 SEL and turned it into a monster nicknamed "[[http://www.car137.com/2010/04/mercedes-benz-300sel-red-sow.html Red Sow]]": The already humongous 6.3-liter V8 was rebored to 6.8 liters and 420hp, the interior was left as-is except for the rollcage, and the entire ride was painted red. Despite its weight and frequent pit-stops, it was fasta than everything else except one BMW 2800CS. It was heavy, cumbersome, ugly, not to mention built from wreckage before the Spa race, it consumed insane amounts of gas and tires, but it was RED and FAST.

* Buses of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empresa_Municipal_de_Transportes_de_Madrid Empresa Municipal de Transportes de Madrid]], the company that operates almost all the public bus lines of the city of UsefulNotes/{{Madrid}}, Spain, were painted [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Emt-madrid-15.JPG red with white stripes]] until the late 2000s when they changed it for [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Madrid_-_Autobús_EMT_8824_-_121212_145920.jpg blue]] instead, on the grounds the latter is a more relaxing color than red as explained much above[[note]]Seats and handrails were red too, later changed to blue, green (for seats reserved for disabled/elderly people and the like) and yellow respectively for the same reason[[/note]]. [[AvertedTrope They still are as fast as a public transit bus can be despite the color change]].

* Red creatures in TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering are likely to have speed abilities such as haste and first strike. Red decks are also the most likely to rely on a quick start and burning through their hand to kill their opponent before the enemy deck can bring out its powerful abilities.

* "Red goes faster" is the car salesman's mantra.[[spoiler: followed closely by "The red one costs about 5000 more, but it's worth it! Just look at that sheen~"]]

TruthInTelevision: Red apparently [[http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/color-red.html promotes adrenalin release]] and [[http://psychology.about.com/od/sensationandperception/a/color_red.htm feelings of excitement or intensity]], which can certainly give the ''appearance'' that a red object is moving faster, as well as possibly encourage the drivers of red vehicles to push the envelope more. Also, the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doppler_Effect Doppler Effect]] makes things red-shifted if they're moving ''away'' from you at a high speed (read: significant fraction of ''the speed of light''). Don't expect there to be any evolutionary basis for this, however, as it's unlikely any human would ever get to see it with the naked eye.

* In ''SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', there is an episode where the Chigs are shown to have specially modified fighters that can skip across the event horizon of a black hole. They look exactly like regular Chig fighters except that they are red.
