** [[Characters/Warhammer40000Orks Ork]] vehicles go faster when they're red because [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Orks think they do]](technically Orks are a little bit psychic, but don't know it, and the mass belief causes a small alteration in the engine's reality. One assumes if enough colour-blind orks formed an army, then GREEN ones would go faster...). This is reflected in-game; for a small extra deployment cost, you can give any Ork model with a red paintjob a bonus to its move radius. [[RealityWarper Orks believe really, really good.]] In previous editions this was the only upgrade that actually mandated you to use a specific color (It's no longer a requirement by a strict reading of the rules, but if you can successfully convince someone that your not-red car is really red, it would be a feat worthy of an Ork).

** Before, in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', Epona is the fastest horse on Lon Lon Ranch. How can you tell? Because she's red.

Her ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' incarnation has some of the best stats of all the potential mounts, though only if you use amiibo.

* 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]].
