Why is VW so obsessed with weird two-tone paint schemes these days?
Not wierd. It's actually a very old technique used to accentuate some body lines, and/or to fool the eye into reducing the visible body mass of the vehicle (Making it appear leaner than it actually is). If done right (read: not a straight line dividing the car in upper and lower halfs) it can be quite appealing.
I had to say that really looks good with old-fashioned flying B badge on the front of Arnage Drophead which i didn't seen that badge for soo long on present Bentley cars. I hope this badge will return in some bentley cars in the future.
