    I have no idea what Grigio Nuvolari looks like, I don't even think I have ever heard of it before. Can you post a pic of what it looks like?

    So grigio nuvolari falls closer to grigio ingrid than argento nurburgring? How does it compare to Grigio Silverstone?

    Looks very close to Titanium to me...much closer than to Argento or Silverstone.

    Grigio Nuvolari is a little darker than Argento Nurb. Its sorta in between the Grigio Titanio and Argento. I never seen Nuvolari in person, but in the photos it looks great in natural lighting.

    It is a Masserati color that is very popular onthe Q. Seems to have a little sand highlight in it.

    Silverstone is a very dark compared to Nuvolari, it could be described as "gunmetal" and there is quite a bit of metallic in it

    Superb Kinda reminds me of the GT Silver (Nuvolari) vs. Arctic Silver (Nurburgring) debate on Porsches.

    For me the decision would be Nuvolari or Silverstone.

    I can relate to the GT Silver (Nuvolari) vs. Arctic Silver (Nurburgring) debate -

    My particular concern is whether Nuvolari would further accentuate the lines - or, conversely, whether Nurburgring would wash out the lines.

    Argento Nurburgring is nothing like Porsche's Artic (the "c" intentionally deleted ;)). AN really pops (it's a very bright silver) in sunlight much more so than Artic silver and it looks good in the shade as well, IMHO. As a result, AN reveals the lines of the 430 exceptionally well, for good or bad depending upon your appreciation of the 430's styling. Nuvolari is a great color and reminds me of a cross betewwn Porsche's Seal grey and the CGT silver. You can't go wrong with either color. :)

    Of course, I must take this opportunity to post more photos. Argento Nurburgring in direct sunlight and shade, as well as Nurburgring next to CGT silver-- I'm such a photo slut.

    Jack - Thanks - I want to accentuate the lines and like Argento Nurburgring but was worried that the lines would be too wahed out. That seals it for me.

    Thanks.

    Jack - car looks stunning as always. The third picture down really does it for me.

    I can be accused of many things, but lack of attention to detail isn't usually one of them. Checked the Porsche NA website, and pulled the color palette. Check the spelling for "Arctic Silver" - ;)

    I defer to you on the similarities (or differences as you like to point out) between AS and AN since I believe you'd had both cars and both colors. From the pics, the two look somewhat similar, but it seems that in person you're suggesting that is not the case. I had a couple of shots of AS in the office, but I don't these are the best to compare.

    Either way, both A Nurburgring and A Nuvolari look great.

    Best.

    Even worse, they misspelled Carrera, a word in 90% of their product names!

    Great catch. And an embarrassing one.

    Arctic silver has brown tones in it. You usually don't notice them until you see it next to Polar silver, which has blue tones in it and is much nicer IMO. AN is a much purer and brighter silver than AS, as Jack noted. AS starts to look like a silvery champagne in certain light and next to PS.

    I don't know if the previous poster was being facetious, but if not, the correct spelling of the colour is Carrara, not Carrera like the race.

    Carrara is a type of white Italian marble. The mountains for that marble are located in Tuscany. Therefore, it's not a spelling mistake, it's actually the name of the color because it is a special white.

    I stand corrected and would never accuse you of exhibiting a lack of attention to detail. I apologize.

    All the best.

    Some Arctic Silver photos.....:D

    I stand corrected. Silly Germans. At least Ferrari don't have a Maranyello color... :p

    No worries at all. All in the spirit of friendly banter my friend.

    Beautiful GT2. Now post some more pics of that gorgeous F430! - :D
