    Could just be the lighting / editing of the photo?

    Don’t think so, even here it looks much more grey than blue. Similar to @Traveller TDF, in Blu Simond.

    That looks like the blue GTS Ferrari of North America has making the dealership rounds for test drives. If it’s the same car (Iroko interior) it’s Blu Swaters.

    No this car has a Bordeaux interior, it is a press car that’s been going around the West Coast.

    Definitely different colours in both cars pictured and the LaFerrari is the first and original Blu Ahrabian, that's way, way proven from long ago. I don't think they will change the colour to that extent. So IMO is more like the journalist is messing colour names? Also mentions Swaters... coincidence?

    The color has definitely not changed. It is hard to tell if the 812 is indeed Blu Ahrabian as the color is very dependent on light and shade. The LaF obviously is as I believe the it was the first car painted with it

    GTS is definitely not Aharabian and very probably Swaters (hate that name. Too close to "Sweaters")

    LaF is Aharabian for sure, that's a color close to Blu Simond

    Thanks Garretto. I would agree with you that the journalists are just messing up the names, just surprises me that both would get it wrong.

    Yes. I think the journalists have just made an error.

    I think you’re right Olivier. Just surprises that multiple journalists have gotten the colour wrong.

    "Journalists"??? Not really. Amateurs. Copy and paste is the new "journalism"!

    Automotive journalists are THE WORST source of information IMO. Those people basically don't know nothing. Nothing replaces the die hard connoisseurs on forums

    I think you mean that you think they don't know anything.

    How sure are you? The 812 GTS pictured in the first post is Blu Ahrabian....at least that’s what the paint sticker says;)

    Update: @Marcel Massini showed me the factory paint sticker on the Ahrabian LaF. I have emailed one of the photographers of the "Ahrabian" GTS, hoping he has images of the paint sticker under the hood, the price list claims Ahrabian yet they appear to be entirely different colours. @ferraripanoz said he's seen the paint sticker on the GTS and it did, in fact say Ahrabian. Let's see where this leads us.

    Love those F investigations :D.

    I was referring to that statement of @TSOYBELIS when I said it was Aharabian

    Got it.

    I am very curious to getting to the bottom of this. I think we can all agree that the Ahrabian LaF and "Ahrabian" GTS is two different colours. Yes, editing and lighting make a difference however I I don't think that is why they look different. I am of the opinion they are two different colours. I am praying that both individuals that photographed the car happened to take a photo of the paint sticker so we can solve this mystery!
