A the­o­ret­i­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­ducted to un­der­stand why white Mi­atas, (and more gen­er­ally white sports cars), are faster than cars of other col­ors. It is shown that un­der con­di­tions of ther­mal equi­lib­rium, white Mi­atas ex­pe­ri­ence re­duced pho­ton drag. Un­der non­equi­lib­rium con­di­tions, in par­tic­u­lar on sunny days, white Mi­atas may ac­tu­ally ex­pe­ri­ence en­hanced propul­sion de­pend­ing on the po­si­tion of the sun.
