    Okay, so it seems that Ferrari Blu America Metallic could be a winner for me, and as runner up maybe Ferrari Blu Scuro Micalizzato.

    And not to forget the Porsche night Blue Metallic, or for that matter BMW Carbon Black Metallic (I actually had a pair of custom painted speakers in Carbon Black once upon a time).

    I also come to the conclusion that if I get a 812 Spider, I may very well go TM. However I feel a bit reluctant to do that on a Portofino since well I will always (?) look for that V12 cab somewhere somehow - so I might sell the Portofino, while the 812 Spider seems to be a keeper (from my perspective). I have even been lurking around a few Aston Martin Vantage V12S Roadster because of this "V12 need" kind of feeling - although the Vantage V12S robomatic gearbox is well not that good.

    For Pista, if you are willing to be bold, I would recommend Blu Elettrico. It will blow you away.

    Like the colour choices, you can't go wrong its just preference at that point. As per your Vantage V12s Roadster idea, I drove for a bit, fun car! Great ride and gearbox is fantastic for the city but on the performance side is a bit lacking. One I thing I will say is the V12 from Aston does lack that scream that Ferrari has just mastered.

    That's pretty much sums it up, Aston Martin Vantage V12S Roadster kind of works for crusing maybe, and well the V12 might not be up to Ferrari standard but it is better than a twinturbo V8 (even if it is made by Ferrari and is a monster engine), since that V12 does sound a lot better than the TTV8.

    ^ True true the TTV8 is too AMG for me for don't let the Aston folks hear that.

    In all fairness it could also be computer monitor and camera, I can see its a very very dark blue in some pics but it comes across as black in others. A real "midnight" blue then. Very nice for the right shape and I think it does work nicely on that GTC4.

    THANK YOU!

    Is this the same as Blu Helen? It shows as £16k on the spec sheet

    I believe it is the same color but as with a lot of things on the internet the details like the 60k price are not really accurate.
    I believe this is the tailor made color Blu Helen.

    I had never heard of the Tailor made program before searching on this amazing resource of knowledge. Here are some renders of the car I am considering buying. It’s almost knew and I can see it Tuesday next week.

    I was going to buy a Nero Daytona exterior with cream interior but this might be too special to pass on.

    I assume this is a tailor made car. I need to see the interior in the flesh but the render looks to die for.

    I believe that the car in question is an atelier configured Blu Helen. For the purposes of the rendering I suspect that Blu Helen is not on the configurator so the dealer has used the closest colour for the purposes of mocking up the rendering.

    Here are actual photos of the car which I managed to find.
