The standard colour scheme for DB long-distance locomotives is traffic red with a light grey front bar. For the anniversary "50 years of Intercity in Germany", in September 2021, the Deutsche Bahn gave the 101 013 an unique colour scheme to match the paint scheme of the IC coaches. It was given the light grey design with traffic red decorative stripes; already known from the ICE and long-distance coaches. In total, 145 units of the 101 class locomotive were put into service by the end of 1999.
