15 Vintage Ferraris Which Aren’t Red


Red is the color most associated with Ferrari, people even describe the color as Ferrari Red, but not all Ferraris were red. Vintage Ferraris, especially the non-racing variety, came in all sorts of colors. Even some Ferrari purists admit red is not the best color to highlight the lines of the car. Over the years we’ve seen plenty, here are some of the most beautiful vintage Ferraris in anything but red.

Every wonder why many cars introduced today are shot in blue? It is because they catch the eye and blue allows the nuances of a car to shine better than any other color. Ferraris look very good in blue. 1957 Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe Speciale1957 Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe Speciale1954 Ferrari Europa GT Comp1954 Ferrari Europa GT Comp1956 Ferrari 250 GT Zagato1956 Ferrari 250 GT ZagatoFerrari 275 GTB AlloyClassic Giallo or Ferrari yellow is almost as recognizable as red, but much more distinctive.

According to Ferrari, “The classic Ferrari red, however, was simply the colour assigned by the International Automobile Federation to Italian grand prix cars in the early years of the last century.” Voila, there wasn’t some dramatic degree by Enzo Ferrari. He was following a rule, not setting one. There are plenty of official Ferrari factory painted reds:

  • Rosso Corsa
  • Rosso Barchetta
  • Rosso Metallizzato
  • Rosso Mugello
  • Rosso Scuderia
  • Amaranto (dark red)
  • Rosso Italia
  • Rosso Bordeaux
  • Rosso Monza
  • Rubino Micalizzato
  • Rosso Dino (nearing orange)
  • Rosso Chiaro

As you can see there are many color options for a Ferrari, they don’t all come in arrest-me-red.
