This is how a Renault Bear would see a bunch of coloured crayons.

You might have noticed that our website is mostly black and white with little touches of red. They are the only colours used for a very special reason. Renault Bears are Monochromats. This is also known as “total colour blindness” and is a complete inability to distinguish between colours. There is one slight difference with Renault Bears though – we can also see red along with the more usual black and white. We think this is because our stable food is strawberry jam on toast. Over time – so the theory goes – we have developed the ability to see red because we have eaten so many strawberries. This is distinguished from more common forms of colour blindness, in which the affected individual can only perceive colour differences in greyscales. Let me try and explain this for you but it is quite complicated.
