Nearly all cars are like this, is due to the difference in the surface that the paint is applied to. A plastic surface makes the paint appear a darker shade than on a metal surface. Unfortunately it is more noticeable on certain colour cars.

Yep! as Rogue 2 says as a metal and plastic do affect the paint finish quite differently especially with certain colours .
