I am thinking about the next round of new Ferrari models I want to add to my collection. The F8 is the latest V8 and have no idea which direction to go with color. I don't want more of the same, or something too far out there. Take a look at my current V8s and let me know what you think would compliment my collection. What color is missing?
And I will eventually get the coupe and spider variant.

If you don't have any dark red (Rosso Barchetta/Mugello) then I might go with that.  I love this color, although I think that it was better on the old V12 grand tourers (550 and older).

I always love blue on the mid-engined V8 Ferraris... either straight blue or yellow with no.black rims or any stripes or other markings going on.

Mike, good call on the dark shades of red. I think I have it on a 599 GTO, and that's it. I am usually not a fan of Rosso Corso, but a darker shade would be great. Thanks.

I think i would go with Grigio Ingrid.  Even though you have silver and grey. As you know. Grigio Ingrid is a totally different shade.

Blue Corsa is also a stunner for the F8 if you go with stock colors, or in case of a custom / repaint color, I would definitely give Verde Pino a try :-) Good luck!

I am a big fan of Rosso Fuoco on any Ferrari, and it looks great on the F8

You two were reading my mind. My original plan was Grigio Ingrid for the coupe and Rosso Fuoco on the spider.

I feel like I have a lot of blue. It's only two. I love blue, you are right. It is a great choice.

And I would LOVE Verde Pino. Probably my favorite historic Ferrari paint. Sadly, I am not sure if BBR or MR will use that color. It would have to be a full on custom job using a BBR model to start. That is going to be expensive. But, that color is absolutely stunning.

Which maker are you going for ? Or are you going for a custom coloured model ?

I was looking at the BBR ones, but Rob said said they'd 'cheapened out' on a couple of bits. I started looking at MR ones, but there aren't as many around.

I've not bought one yet.

That's a stunning colour!

Craig, I prefer BBR, but have not found a color I really like. I am sure they will release more colors down the road. I need to be ready knowing what I want so I can reserve one.
Something about MR bothers me. But, I am thinking of doing a custom order from MR. At least for one of them.
