    I'm guessing the second one is Rosso Barchetta.

    I don't know about the first one.

    Hmm...I also thought, that the red one could be Barchetta even though the light isn't the best...
    Is Rosso Mugello an option? Haven't seen this colour yet.

    My guess for the blue one is Blu Mediterraneo (Maserati colour).
    I think one can rule out TdF, NART and Mirabeau...

    Btw:
    Any idea on that one?
    Either Medio or Scuro...

    Medio in my opinion. Scuro is darker.

    Reds are very difficult to call in pictures since they look so different depending on light conditions. The Red could be vinaccia, which is a flat red like Barchetta and from the 50s/60s color palette.

    I also think that the red is Rosso Mugello. My first 575 was in Blu NART that looked under certain light conditions exactly like the blue 599 in the other photo.

    That was my first thought too ;)

    You have posted a picture of a car in Rosso Mugello. The pictures of the red car you have posted were taken at the Nurburgring Ferrari Racing Days last year (actually the second picture might have been at the Oldtimer GP). I was there and saw the car and it is certainly Rosso Mugello. Indeed there were two cars in the same colour (the other had a tan interior) and I spoke to the owner of the second car and asked him what the colour was.

    Thanks for the confirmation :)

    Btw: since when is Rosso Mugello available - seems to be a new shade, right?

    Looks a bit less "maroon" for it to be Rosso Barchetta. Having said that, one must keep in mind that formulations have changed with the latest generation of waterbased paints compared to the 90s (or earlier) pigments used.

    The latest photo of the Blue 599 is so close in shade to my first 575 that was painted in the post-2001 Blu NART (I seem to recall it was 523-3 and that there were a couple of other permutations as well)
