Raise Your Flag To Ferraris In Red, White and Blue

Classic and current Ferraris make a flagFor your patriotic enjoyment I thought I’d throw together a few classic Ferraris in red, white and blue.  But if you have ever authored a blog, you would know intentions are not always realistic.

In theory the idea of making an American Flag photo collage from classic, vintage and modern Ferraris sounded cool.  This was before I realized how rare a white Ferrari actually was.  As you can see, it didn’t work quite as well as intended.

In my massive Ferrari picture library there were but a few true white Ferraris.  White Ferraris are not common and I likely have a picture of most of the vintage ones, just not enough.  It isn’t that Ferrari didn’t make white; Bianco Avus, Bianco Italia, and Avorio were factory colors.  The 599 Fiorano in the middle is stock and gorgeous but alas, white is not a popular Ferrari color.

So we’ll shift gears and harness some flaming reds… Ferrari F12 rearThe brand new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta of course comes in red and yes I know, I still have to test drive this one – but not in red thank you very much. Ferrari 333 SP The elusive Ferrari 333 SP  prototype racer looks more like something with an under-bite issue and more suited for shoveling up roadkill.  However, in eight seasons racers enjoyed it enough whereby 40 were produced.  Still kinda fugly.  Ferrari FXXThe FXX, the track only factory maintained gentleman’s racer, a very rich gentleman that is who can fly his car back and forth to the factory to keep it in working order.  But wow is this one hot sexy car. 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO 64 Scaglietti BerlinettaFrom the Ferrari GTO anniversary celebration at Pebble Beach in 2011 is this glorious 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO Scaglietti Berlinetta, may not be in a Lisa color but it is in the Lisa year so we are good. Ferrari 1957 TRC 500Getting older… (not me, the cars) this sleek little 500 TRC is just so darned cute, in a super fast sort of way. Ferrari 125 S 1947 Now we are back at the beginning with the very first car to wear the Ferrari badge and begin the red legacy, the Ferrari 125 S from 1947.

When it comes to red, well there is no other car which is quite as synonymous with a color as a red Ferrari.

In the world of true design there is no such thing as just red.  Rosso Corsa, Rosso Scuderia, Rosso Mugello, Rosso Fiorano, Rosso Dino & Rosso Maranello are all colors of Ferrari red.  Corsa, Scuderia and Maranello are the most popular with Rosso Corsa being the more blue red and others more orange reds.  Hey, to someone like me where any nuance of color makes a difference – options matter.

Whichever red, or blue or white you choose, I hope you are having a wonderful Fourth of July Holiday weekend.   Drive safe!Lisa signature

  1. The beautiful classic curves of Ferrari was a nice way to start my weekend, thanks Lisa. I always thought the 333 looked like a kit car you could order out of a magazine or something…. Yuck!

  2. Thank you for stopping in Jeremy. Ha, I concur on your description of the 333, “kit car” – yes. Kinda reminds me of a go-kart too.
