    There was a book about the C5 Corvette titled: 'All Corvettes are Red'.
    Shoulda been: 'Most Ferraris are Red'

    They say all Ferraris are red. But, they come in different colors.

    I never understood what they meant by that (all red). When I think Corvette I think silver ('59 Sting Ray Concept and the '73 4-Rotor)

    Yellow is not the 'official' colour at all. Enzo never had an official colour just race cars and road cars to fund the racing. Yellow represents Modena but it really is not 'official'.

    You and about 12 other people think about the 73 4 rotor. Lol.

    Silver... as it applies to the car. Not the motor. The former was significant, the latter not.

    So yes, this is what I think if my interest turns towards Corvettes. ;)

    I have had three red Fcars. F355 F1 GTS, 360 F1 Spider and now 458 Spider. The first two had black interior. The 458 has tan interior with red stitching.

    The black interior is hot on the legs in summer when wearing shorts. The tan is harder to keep clean.

    Every Fcar owner should have a red one at least once.

    I’m a yuge fan of rosso corsa over nero, personally. Argento Nurburgring over nero is a close second.

    I agree to the fullest. My first one was rosso corsa over nero and wouldn’t have had it any other way, but have moved on and I don’t see myself going back to red.

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    Same here... first one was red, but three black ones since. I see possibly another Ferrari in the future. One that looks best in black.

    Started with black/black now red/tan. They say most first owners go red. Then most who buy again go another colour. I went the other way.

    Red Ferrari and black Vette. Old Vettes have lots of chrome and they look best in black IMHO.

    Grigio Titanio: slightly understated and extremely classy!
