    At the Paris Auto Show I saw this color I haven't seen before; Grigio Silverstone. It's much darker than Grigio Titano and looks very rich(you can get an idea of comparison in the second pic). I likey ;)

    Looks very nice.

    Could this be the color that the new F430 pics are in, rather than Canna di Fucile?

    That looks like the seal grey on pcars. awesome color, but probably too dark to show the curves and scoops/intakes of a Ferrari.

    Copycats !! My son came up with the Silverstone Gray name when he was the product planner for the Nissan 350Z back in 02.

    Maybe your son copied it from Honda -- they had a Silverstone color for the NSX many years earlier (iirc). :)

    Grigio Silverstone... just doesn't click. It doesn't sound right. It has an Italian beginning and a really really American ending....

    But that color looks really sweet!!!!! = o

    Just called my son who said: "Dad, I never told you I came up with Silverstone. I made up Le Mans Sunset and Daytona Blue". My mistake, I should have known better as I have been an NSX owner for 8 years. (Sebring/Kaiser/Silverstone, right ?)

    great color, just proves that Ferrari's can look good in colors other than red.

    Unless the pictured colours are not the full current range, it seems like they no longer offer green colours Verde Zeltweg and British Racing Green.

    Not good news IMO.

    Not sure if I like it on the 430 but it MIGHT look good on a 575. Not even sure if it would work on that car. I just know it is too dark for the 430.
