    Hi Guys,

    I ordered a Portofino last week in Grigio Titanio and I am unsure as to if I will stick with the color or change to Rosso Portofino.

    Please note that the interior will be Beige Tradizionale with Daytona Seats.

    I happen to love Grigio Titanio and my first F car was a 550 in this color.

    Since then I have owned;

    575 in Black.
    599 in Grigio Alifieri (Similar to Titanio)
    458 in Grigio Silverstone
    F12 in Grigio Silverstone
    246 Dino in Red

    And now I have a Rosso Mugello 488GTB

    Condor, you can't go wrong with either. The titano will look fantastic with that tan interior. The Rosso will look great as well, it's especially for this model. It just depends if you want more or less contrast to the 488. I will say that I would get the front grill with the light colored edges.

    Silver looks very sharp and classy.
    Not loving the yellow calipers though.

    Thank you.

    It is actually Grigio Titanio which is darker than Silver.

    Also, I am a big fan of the yellow calipers as I think they match the shields.

    So far according to the poll (this can only be seen on the non app version of fchat) it is a dead heat with 5 for Grigio Titanio and 5 for Rosso Portofino.

    No harm with that.
    For giggles, config one with silver calipers and yellow Cap crests to match the shields. Might work also.

    I was going to vote for Rosso Portofino but saw you already had a red 488.

    So to be different I would go with go with Grigio Titanio.

    That was my initial theory behind ordering the Grigio Titanio Portofino and a red GTB vs a red 488 Spider.

    However, the reason I am considering changing the order is based on the fact that in isolation when I am driving the Portofino the 488 is never going to be next to it.

    Most people are going to simply vote for which color they like better. I suggest to think about how this car fits into your stable. I voted Rosso Portofino. I think the color works so very well on this shape, I love it! I think GT is also a great color and I have it on my 488. But I just think RP gives the car that extra something special. However, if you are going to keep that 488 then maybe GT gives you the better contrast.

    I went for the red on mine. I am not a red person but I think that Ferrari knew what would make the car stand out.

    It's a 7 day Poll. I will let the forum decide for me.

    If you're keeping the 488, or if the 488 is a route to something else ..... then I would go with GT. Its a really great color. I saw RP in person last night and WOW! Imagine Rosso Fuoco but without the violet in the shadow areas and with some copper in the highlights. Very striking color. You might call it "candy apple red metallic". I would imagine many people will see this color on this shape and decide its a must have.

    Grigio Titanio. But I tend to like Ferrari's NOT in red, especially GT's. Tend to favor grays and blues personally. I ordered mine in Blu Scozia which is the same color as my Speciale. My 599 is Silverstone Grigio which I like as well, but not as unique. Last I checked with the dealer, they were estimating late Q4 delivery.

    So my absolutely favorite color is Rosso Fuoco and I will sell my 488 when I get my Pista which will be fuoco. And Candy Apple Red Metallic is a perfect description which the end of the sentence being triple layer paint.

    The vote is now 15 to 15...

    How hard is this!!

    Correct. Late Q4 is the delivery barring any production hold up.
