    Its only when you are looking for non red do you realise just how high the percentage is of red 328's in the UK. Europe or US - no problem.
    I have been lookng for a non red 328GTS for over 8 months, but they are all red.
    Does anyone know the stats for colour of UK 328's, or is it not available information.

    Thanks.

    I assume that means all the others were / are red. That's 9 out of every 10 - good grief!

    No wonder you are having a problem.:(

    Just out of interest. Thanks

    Looks like it may take a long time to find a car !!

    Hmmm, now should I consider changing a red car into a non red car......

    The irony is that in the 80's I changed a white 308 into a red 308 :eek::eek::(:(

    Well some of the cars that are now red were not originally so changing one back to original would be a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

    What colour do you want? There is a black one for sale here: https://www.thesupercarrooms.co.uk/car-details/ferrari-328-gts-abs-for-sale-G126 and a blue one here: https://www.carsto-go.co.uk/used-ferrari-328-bournemouth-dorset-2075204

    Re the colour change, the white to red 308 now lives in Australia, it would be a red 328 changing colour !
    The issue is though that to do it properly it is not a good exercise from a financial point of view as the upper values of 328's are to low (relatively).

    I travelled to the Midlands to view the black Supercar Showrooms car, a complete waste of time (pm me if anyone wants details of the car or the seller), and the TDF blue car recently changed hands at auction. It has had a hard life !

    Thanks for the links though.

    Yes definitely wouldn't be a good move financially to do a colour change.

    What are you ideally after? There aren't many cars to choose from even if they were all actually on sale but I do have further details so perhaps you might try getting in touch with any owners of cars in the colour combo you prefer. PM if you prefer.

    Johnathan, you are a mine of information and never cease to amaze me. Do you by any chance have similar statistics on either 246GTs or 550s?

    More-or-less but I don't want to post them yet. It is still work in progress. The older cars (like Dinos) are harder to keep track of.
