    As far as I remember, this car is a paint to sample but I don't know the exact color. I believe he showed up at CC but wouldn't reveal the color so it wouldn't be copied.

    Actual custom color. It looks a little funky and the stripe clashes with it IMO. Too each his own.

    Must be an ex-Audi or BMW driver - It looks just like Nogaro Blue (Audi S4) and there is a similar color for the BMW M3

    It does look a lot like the BMW M3 Laguna Seca Blue.

    Looks great, unique, I like it very much. I think the color name question is almost impossible to answer. Just think, How many simmilar blue shades are there, and factories change them annualy, and if it is custom mixed then, really impossible.

    It looks better in the metal than in the pictures. Not my first choice blues-wise as I am a dark metallic kind of guy but frankly I like it better than rosso dino - just thinking now that those two cars together would be interesting...

    Cheers

    It's either Audi's Nogaro blue, or BMW Santorini blue...it's not metallic enough for Laguna Seca. the crazy thing is I've owned cars in both colours and I can't decide which it is.

    it odens't go good with the stripes. It looks almost liek a color on a f40 I saw. It looks darker, in the last pic. I prefer dark blue.

    It was a paint to sample color. The initial inspiration was French Racing blue and Bugatti Blue. I just tweeked those two colors until I came up with what you see. The color is darker and less green than Laguna Seca blue when seen in person. It seems to look lighter in most pictures for some reason.

    This color is closer to the Audi nogaro blue, if not the same.
    The LS BMW is different.

    In front of you
    I spoke to the owner about the color, which I guessed to be Bugatti blue. He said it is a custom color of Bugatti blue and a Porsche blue. That car is one of my top two/three favorite Stradales.

    Audi also has a Santorin Blue which is Royal/navy-ish. Came on the S4's. You sure that BMW has a Santorin Blue also?

    On that note, we should have an Estoril Blue Stradale! That would be nice ;)
