    Never seen a 360 in this color actually, looks very similar to the blue available on the Gallardo.

    Looks too bright to be TDF Blue

    This is TDF Blue. The one you have pictured is definitely not TDF...

    I think this is correct - it isn't Pozzi or TdF or Monaco or LeMans or Swaters.

    I looks very much like NART blue, which I believe is lighter in shade than TDF, or Swatters.

    I dunno, looks like it might be TDF to me, and I own one. Always hard to tell in a photo. Here's my TDF 360 for comparison. Notice how different it looks with different light angles.

    i just saw a 550 in NART blue at a local dealership and it seemed to be darker that that car. granted it was inside and not in sunlight, but i doubt it could be NART with such a big differential. what's the lighter blue Ferrari uses? azura or something like that. guy that owns the dealership told me that L. de Montezemolo's favourite color is blue and thats why there are so many blue variations you can opt for. as for me, i've seen in person TDF and now NART (i got to drive the TDF 550) and of the two i think i prefer the TDF, but i didn't get to see the NART car outside, so i can't really say for sure, but either way the search for my blue 550 goes on.....

    cheers

    NOW I get it. Thanks! I've been trying to figure out for months now why Ferrari has gone spastic with blue variants. I see now it's all due to Luca M. :D

    I agree with tdf360, the TDF paint scheme DOES change dramatically depending on lighting conditions. I think the second picture he posted (underneath the car in question) is almost an identical match.
