    Is that Robin's egg blue? Or powerder blue? I think I have seen a 60s Mustang Convertible in that color. Its not so bad.

    I like it because it is different. It would be nice to be at a meet or show with a color that is different than just about every one elses car.

    Yowsa - I agree. But I think its Fuglio Scuderia to be precise (or in perfect Italian)

    I'll check the PPG color palette at work but I don't recall seeing anything like that in the Ferrari references ...

    Looks like the Baby Blue Mercedes Color on the old 240 Diesels. Wow that is pretty hideous. I remember a guy looking at a 308 GTS when I was kid and telling me brown was the way to go, I thought oh ****, this guy is nuts. Well that Baby Blue is pretty Fugly.

    This 550 was for sale at the Essen Motor Show. It's from May 1998. And the advertisement on the car said in german: 'Original' and that it was a 'Werkslackierung', which means that it was painted by the factory. The price was 105.000 euro and it had done 17.000 km. It was for sale by a Lambo dealer.

    Now that's an ugly colour for an f- car!!

    No wonder it's for sale!!

    It's definately not an original colour from the factory!

    You say a lamborghini dealer sells it!?

    Maybe that explains it, it looks more like an original lamborghini colour to me!! :) Next to that ugly green, orange, etc...

    Kevin, you are also from Belgium, Antwerp like me!?

    You went to Essen?

    How was it? Many Ferraris? Maybe any tuned S2000's (honda)?

    The only car I saw worse was a Yellow 456. Imagine that combo.... Looked like a giant banana.

    That's Honda Accord Ricesport Blue :). I wonder if he got the primer grey bumper in front too.

    Definitely not a standard color (the 'baby blue' metallic regularly from the factory is called 'azzuro california,' but that looks like this:

    Wow, I never realized the 550 replaced the Cadillac DTS as the new choice of car for all mobsters;). I like the foot hanging out of the trunk.

    Now that is a nasty color. Why would anyone want such an ugly color on thier 550? Yuck! But to each thier own. There is an even worse color than that. It looks like primer, and I have seen it mostly on Dodges.
