    That looks like TdF!!! Here is pic of Blu Mirabeau from stand...looks like a darker version of Azurro Cal in this pic. I am sad if it is a rehash of TdF.

    Oh NO! Not another blue. Ok, so how many "blues" do we have.

    (1) Swatters
    (2) Tour De France
    (3) Chiaro
    (4) Pozzi
    (5) Nart; and now
    (6) Blu Mirabeau

    Unbelievable. I don't any other car manufacturer makes that many shades of blue. And these are all stock!

    Is this color exclusive to the 612, or is it now available for all current models?

    Is it me or are they renaming some of the colors? I have seen a few colors in person that are really FAR too close to be different.

    For instance, TdF vs. Le Mans blue? Side by side you can't tell a difference...

    Also, if this is the blue that was on the car making rounds - it looks a lot like Swatters Blue (has a purplish tint, etc.).

    The current range of standard blues are:

    Blue Pozzi 521
    Blue TDF 522
    Blue Nart 523
    Blue Mirabeau 525
    Grigio Alloy 750 (actually belongs with the other Grigio colors but does have some blue in it)

    You can pay extra and order the older blue shades as well known as "out of range". While some are similar, when you hold them together they are different.

    I initially thought Mirabeau was to be a steel blue, medium , not dark. I have not seen it @ local dealer or on car until now, and the pic looks a LOT like another more purple hued TdF color. Have you seen it in person yet? I wanted to order it on the Maranello replacement when it comes out, but I don't want a dark blue.
    TIA

    I think Vik's got it right. Clearly some colors are the same. For example, I still believe that Mirabeau and Swatters are the same color. TdF and Le mans are the same as well.

    One thing, I think Azzuro California is still available?

    Azzuro California is not a standard color anymore but can be ordered at an extra charge.

    Swatters is much darker than Mirabeau here is picture with swatters on the left:

    Sorry, it is light blue, very close to Azzuro California but still a little bit different.

    Belongs in the previous blue catagory. Now an extra charge.

    Thanks for the clarification Sean. Can't argue with the paint pieces.

    I must say, I'm still a huge fan of Pozzi. TdF is a stunning color as well!

    I have not seen it in person. While cameras change colors, the picture of the 612 at the begining of this thread looks pretty acurate vs. the show stand sample photo. It is lighter than TdF

    gorgeous color!! It seems to have hints of purple in it. BTW, how cool is it that Ferrari uses F1 nosecones for their paint samples?!!?

    Argento Nurburgring is silver... and is a "current" color... no resemblance to blue.

    Sean - That is great info - Can you compare Chiaro to some of the other blues or is that too old of a color?

    Thank You
