    Jon Olsson's Lambo's, skyline and R8 are much better.


    I know he did 260kph in this.

    Agreed.

    Ferrari, however, must be Ferrari red.

    I fucking LOATHE red cars of all makes and models, except Ferrari. It's weird how it just works so flawlessly with them.

    I'd like my Gallardo to either be metallic orange (arancio borealis) or balloon white

    Fuck that. I can't think of any model of Ferrari where red would be my first option. Actually I can think of two: the 288 GTO (simply because I wouldn't have a choice) and the 360 Challenge Stradale. And even then, I think I'd almost rather have my CS in TDF or Monterey Blue over red hide.

    In terms of Lamborghini, I'm partial to Blu Cepheus or Blu Glauco used on this Aventador:

    ^

    Agree to disagree because while I find that shade of Monterey Blue to be appealing as a color, I think it looks very meh on that F430.

    And this is coming from a guy who loves blue (my past car was Mystic Blue and my current is Interlagos Blue; not sure if you're familiar with BMW paints).

    For me, Ferrari's gotta be in Ferrari Red with the tan leather. Call it boring, but I think it looks the best, always. Ok, maybe not the BEST, objectively, but it never looks bad.

    For an Adventador, I'd get it in black.

    TDF blue is the greatest, though. With brown or tan interior

    Ferraris should be grey or blue and Lambos should be the same, rosso vik or something garish.

    ^ In a V12 (re: tan), definitely. But I always thought the CS looked "off" when it had a tan interior (or leather period, for that matter)...

    TdF looks great on the 360CS, the 430...not so much. If I ever bought a Lambo it would be a bright color....Lambo's are meant to be loud. See picture below and replace unicorn with Lambo.

    No need for the car to be in a loud color, when the car it self can be loud. ;)
