    IMHO the paint color is Grigio Ferro for that 488 Pista.

    Me too. I just think that the stripes, although look good. They belong to the Pista and not for the F8. The Pista has the racing appearance. I find the F8 to be the modern version of the 458 and the refined version of the Pista. Therefore, I let the Pista have what it's duly "his/hers". Putting stripes on an F8, although they may look good, it will never look as good as on the Pista and to me, they look a little forced.

    Thank you. It’s “Verde Nathalie” named after my wife.

    The initial goal was to find a green version of Grigio Titanio used on our 488 GTB below. We’ve owned a lot of silver and gray cars and wanted a little more color. We were also inspired to discover a modern, slightly more grayish interpretation of Scaglietti’s Celeste Gainsborough seen on the beautiful 250 SWB below from the Hampton Court Concours.

    Looks fantastic!
    I have been considering a Pista that is for sale in Aluminio Opaco. Is it easy to live with - cleaning/polishing etc?

    After more than a year debating what my first Ferrari should be and actually ordering the new F8 I actually found the perfect car I always dreamed off. The Ferrari 488 Pista. I found the perfect car in the color and color combination I liked the best. The only thing it didn't have was the carbon fiber engine covers which I very quickly resolved with the help of Denis and Ian of MyRICAMBI. The parts I received are of a very high quality and looking absolutely amazing. The installation wasn't as easy as I thought it would be because I had to transfer all the gaskets but over all it was a piece of cake. Here are some pictures of my car and the before and after pictures of the engine covers. I highly recommend MyRICAMBI for any of your Ferrari carbon fiber needs based on the experience I made. www.MyRICAMBI.com

    Lots of conjecture about the paint color for this Pista in the UK. I suggested the paint was Grigio Ferro and that was confirmed by the dealer.
    Another view from a couple of angles for that same Pista provided by them below >

    Easy to live with if you simply apply a matte clear PPF wrap. I’ve done both cars. Very happy with the end result and takes all the stress out of it
