A passion for food hits the auto industry.

Feeding (pardon the pun) on our nation's ever-growing culinary passion, the newest trend is—cars? Yes, it's true. If you have a thirst for Merlot or a hankering for white chocolate, go visit your local car dealership, where you might find cars named after, or in the color of, your favorite food or wine. Celebrity-chef Rocco DiSpirito is the co-spokesman for the new Lincoln MKX, while General Motors is offering cars in colors like: black licorice, cappuccino frost metallic and salsa red metallic. Bon appétit!
