    Yellow is a odd color in that model.

    For most cars, a new model kills the price of the current model, but is it opposite for ferraris?

    I believe TDF blue on a Maranello would be an "on" color from the postings I've seen over the past few years.

    The main stream colors for the 550 seem to be: Silver, Black, Titanium, NART, and TDF. It also depends on the interior color of the car as well. It is all really personal taste but the dealers seem to like these colors.

    ......and of course, red. :)

    Although popular, Titanium/blue cars sit longer than tit/blk. Tit/bordeaux is even worse. Rosso Fiorano and Yellow are second tier as well.

    G. Alloy, G. Ingrid, A. Calif, V. Mugello.....buy these right cause in most cases, it will take a year to sell them.

    yellow is actually a popular color on the 550s in my area. There are I believe 5 of them within a 5 mile radius.

    You know the old saw about green race cars. Perhaps a green Ferrari just doesn't fit the image. Popular shades seem to go through cycles but Ferrari seems to be a law onto it's self... I would still take the Yellow 375MM with the green interior!

    I once saw a 456GTA in verde silverstone (a little lighter than BRG) over tan that was just killer. I used to think I would never own a green car that wasn't English, but if not for the slushbox that 456 would have found a new home on the spot.

    To me, the larger cars such as the 456, 550 and 612 look much better in darker (or at least less flashy) colors than they do in resale red or fly yellow. The stealth aspect is a plus, too, at least for me. The difference is that while red and yellow look OK on the 550 they look just plain weird on the 2+2s (imagine a Scag in yellow - teehee).

    On the other hand, in all candor I would take a 550 in Pepto Bismol Pink over Chartreuse if the price were right. :D

    to me color on a car is in the eyes of the beholder. I have a rosso fiorano 550 and i think it is gorgeous. I love giallo colored Ferraris too...but I have never seen a 550 live in yellow.

    rosso fiorano, I really wanted one of these, or a Nart blue.

    As do I. I was told I ordered the first G. Ingrid 550 in NA back in 00 and A. Calif is absolutely stunning on a 550!

    Go figure. I guess it's called "Resale Red" for a reason???
