    I'm guessing it's not an "official" Ferrari factory color.

    Anyone?

    I have not seen this colour before.

    But the pictures are sure stunning, especially the one from the top where you can see the grill of the engine cover.

    thanks for posting the pictures.

    Kenny,


    That's Michel Alverez's car. I am positive it is not an official car and that he had it repainted. If you really want to know I can email him.

    I'd love to get in touch with him, I have tons of pictures of his car (and some cool stories such as him spinning on the track right behind us at the Poconos while I was in Matt Karsons challenge car..)

    Yep, thank you very much! I was fortunate enough to spend most of my summer with Will H (has the 512tr race car) and travel to various FCA events..

    Hi everyone, this is my first reply to any post. I believe the color is Monaco Blue, a factory Ferrari color choice. There is an F355 painted in this color for sale now, check it out here http://www.motorclassiccorp.com/DisplayCar.asp?carid=89

    I saw this car at LRP when he just brought it over. European Challenge I believe, and the first weekend they had it at the track, they had to tear apart the rear end and replace the diff (if I can recall correctly, as this was Years ago...) But the car is absolutely stunning, and is pretty quick.

    I'll have to dig through some video, see if i can find some of it. It was poretty good though, they had parts shipped overnight to the track, and had it fixed by morning .
