AkzoNobel and hot rod builder Dave Kindig introduce Modern Classikk, a new custom line of automotive paints


Black Hole Black™, Teal Later™ and Veruca Violet™ are just three of twenty-six new colors created for AkzoNobel by Kindig to be available in January 2018

Las Vegas, NV – AkzoNobel announced today the launch of Modern Classikk, a new custom color line of automotive paints designed in partnership with Dave Kindig, hot rod builder and host of the popular show “Bitchin’ Rides.”

Modern Classikk will be available starting in January 2018. Together with AkzoNobel, Kindig introduced the line of 26 new colors today at the Specialist Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, the premier automotive specialty products trade event.

“AkzoNobel is a powerhouse in the world of automotive paint and I am very proud of the custom line of paints that we have developed together,” says Kindig. “When you see these colors 30 years from now, you will still love to look at them. Modern Classikk includes an extra dimension of depth that helps people see different shades from different angles. It’s amazing, and I can’t wait to see how people react when they see these colors on the road.”

The introduction of the Modern Classikk paint brand comes almost a year to the date after AkzoNobel and Kindig announced their partnership. Over the past 12 months, Kindig worked closely with AkzoNobel to develop the new paint line, which includes colors such as Black Hole Black™, Teal Later™ and Veruca Violet™. He visited the company’s vehicle refinishes site in Troy, MI to connect with AkzoNobel’s team and to learn more about their expertise in creating groundbreaking refinishing solutions.

“The Modern Classikk brand includes 26 eye-catching colors that have never been seen on the road before,” says Jennifer Solcz, North American Marketing Manager for AkzoNobel Vehicle Refinishes business. “Dave’s vision and dedication have helped us to create a line of automotive paints that are truly unique with unparalleled excellence in depth, clarity and quality.”
