    I think the underlying color is very similar for both, but TDF is a matalic whereas Nart is not. The true difference is difficult to capture in pictures so I would recommend seeing both in person if you're really serious. Best of luck!

    Both are very nice colours - but definitely you need to see both in person! Good luck :)

    both are great though I tend to like non metallic paints/colors better

    To me, the Nart Blue is darker/intense blue as to TDF blue, which is lighter/brighter in comparision.
    I'll go as far as to illustrate it to a coffee brew, since I'm having my cuppa right now:)

    Nart Blue - More Robust, TDF Blue - Less Robust.
    Either ways they are both stunning colors!

    I haven't seen NART blue, but TdF is a very complex colour, and it changes quite dramatically under different lights. We did a 550 in it, and it was quite the challenge to mix it up 'right'. It creates a beautiful effect on a car with big surfaces.

    The TDF is, technically, a better color.

    Is Pozzi blue the darkest of the three?

    Pozzi is dark and non-metallic. I've seen Pozzi and TdF side by side, and the difference is significant. I don't know that much about NART blue, though.

    The Nart blue is lighter than the Pozzi. And the Nart is a little greener than the TDF when you see them side by side.

    That's how I would describe it too. Standing alone, you probably wouldn't notice the greenish tint too much. But, parked beside a TdF car, it is more obvious.

    Apologies for resurrecting this 3+ year thread but I came across this completely by chance while googling for blue NART... The car in the first picture is my car now! I recognise the registration number from old invoices!

    Do you remember what the event was Paul? Do you know if the owner is on fchat?

    One other difference, the metal flake pops a little more in tdf than nart.

    Just went back and read this after responding to this old thread from my cell. I've owned one of each, and the blue nart in my garage right now is metallic. It's not "as" metallic as TDF, but it's metallic. Either that, or the car I just purchased isn't blue nart as it was advertised but some other hue, custom or otherwise, a tad darker than TDF.

    Bob, you should be able to check the exact colour of your car by checking the sticker under your bonnet, no?

    N.A.R.T Blue has green highlights,
    TDF has purple highlights.

    Ferrari of Scottsdale had both colors at the same time, some time ago. I thought Nart appeared a little brighter and the TDF a little darker. Maybe this was because of the green vs purple colors underneath.

    Both were stunning.
