Sorry if this is a repost - I did a search and didn't find anything specific on this topic. I'm hoping the experts in this vintage section can share the answers to 2 questions: - where did the color name "giallo FLY" come from? - And which Ferrari was first painted that color? In other threads and on other websites, some people say "FLY" is an acronym for "Ferrari Light Yellow". If it stands for "Ferrari Light Yellow", then "FLY yellow" would be redundant (Ferrari Light Yellow yellow). It doesn't seem likely Ferrari would use the name "giallo FLY" if the "Y" meant "yellow". I vaguely remember another reference I read in some magazine (perhaps Cavallino?) that "FLY" was an acronym for either a specific company or perhaps a racing team or location. I'm aware that Ferrari has several colors that part of the name is an acronym, such as: - Blu NART (North American Racing Team) - Bianco AVUS (Automobil Verkehrs und Ubungs Strasse), AVUS is one of the German Grand Prix tracks. - Blu TDF (Tour de France) So, it isn't too far-fetched for "FLY" to be an acronym. Another thing that typically comes up in the discussion of Ferrari colors is that racing red (Rosso Corsa) is the national racing color of Italy but that yellow is the official color of Modena. I've heard that is why the Cavallino shield ("Scuderia Ferrari") has a yellow background color. I'm hoping that the identification of the first Ferrari painted Giallo FLY will be a clue as to what "FLY" stands for. I'm thinking the color first appeared in the 1950's but I'm not sure. Thanks for any insights into this. I figured FerrariChat is the best place to find people who would know this (especially the vintage section).
