Guys ive been confused for a long time about which colour is best.... am planning to order one mid 2013 and am really confused... initially i wanted nothing but black but black seems to hide away some amazing lines and curves.....also.. would you regard Volcano Red as a more "girly colour" or should i go for white...? CONFUSED !!! Please help!:confused:

Sandesh. Visit the MPC and look at the colours. Your correct that dark colours hide the lines but still look good. All the whites are good but some people say that makes the car look like a Fridge......albeit a fast Fridge.

VR is drama, not a girls colour but maybe a hairdresser colour.

Go see, it is the only way!

ive never seen you as a hairdresser RIC??,but out of the 3 i agree with you VR is the best,dark enough not to be obvious and it shows the lines as well as VO :)

Of those three options:
Black is great in isolation, but gets lost in crowds + as others have said you lose the lines.
White is probably the most statement colour and the monochrome effect shows off all the vents and glasshouse contrast - imho black sideblades and mirrors would be a must with white.
VR won't have as much immediate presence, but equally has more sophistication and won't need constant cleaning.
Depends on your priority - go see some cars in the real world if you can before your decide.

thank you..

thank you everyone..... youre right... i need to look at them in person... i think i'd go for a white or VR, i would choose the CF side Blades and mirror castings and stealth-finish light weight forged wheels no matter which one of those colours i choose.... please keep your valuable suggestions coming guys.... thank you!

If you want people to be forever asking what kind of Ferrari your car is, go for VR

Seems like the batman dark/dark look is passé. But it works so well on the 12C I'm doing it anyway.
The configurator isn't helpful IMO.
Envisioning what's most versatile might help, or trying a color you haven't had before.
A lot of bling and attention isn't what I need. Maybe if I was under 30...
The white/red suggested above is eye-watering however :)

Vr is the most spectacular colour but make sure you wrap it as stone chips cant be touched up

Black makes the car look very sleek but as with all black cars, you lose the lines

Not sure about white - could be a fad.....
