It's only white on the outside. It's all silver underneath

I've just found that we made something that goes even faster, though it took a gravitational slingshot around Saturn to get it up to speed.

Voyager 1 is currently heading into the outer reaches of our solar system at 38,800mph. So the fastest colour is gold.

Arguably, as no light really gets out there, it's black

Aye, but it has no crew therefore not a proper vehicle.

This misses the point.

No-one can see it. Therefore it doesn't matter how fast the colour is.

We have gone from science to philosophy now ' if it cannot be seen does it exist' - discuss....

And philosophy is where there are no right or wrong answers because your opinion is as valid as anyone else's.
