Ferrari 458 Italia color variations - Click above for a high-res image gallery
Although most Ferrari owners prefer their prancing horses in red, others maintain few things are more boring than another Maranello masterwork tinted scarlet. Ferrari will likely build you its latest 458 Italia in whatever color you chose, provided you're willing to pay for it, but it stands to reason that when a model is introduced, it's rolled out in Ferrari's traditional Rosso Corsa.

Ferrarichat user JimF is apparently afflicted with a heavy case of Red-Ferrari-Ennui. Rather than just complain about the lack of chromatic variation, Jim fired up Photoshop and set about using the power of paths and transfer modes to show the new Italian in a variety of alternative hues. His work is nicely done, and the unexpected colors better show off the Italia's sculpting. Hit the gallery and hunt down your favorite color below.

      I'm not a big Ferrari fan, but this one looks fantastic in any colour.

      Me, I'd love to see it in a glossy piano black with matte black wheels. That would make it look positively evil, and menacing enough to make you wet yourself a little.

      well, considering i'm 52 and way over the career-building phase, if your photoshop 'artist' charged you for more than 7 minutes of work for the entire 'rainbow' of colors presented here, you were screwed. tell him to use FADE>COLOR (layer transparency)>and then pick a percentage (50%-75%), for a more realistic look to his/her work. this could have been done by the end of the first 45 minute session in Photoshop 101. not that there's anything wrong with entry-level work.

      The color doesn't matter if you can't get it with a clutch.

      God, this car looks better every time I see it.

      And I loved it at first sight.

      This is the first Ferrari I really didn't like in black - it loses so much of it's shape that way.

      White is awesome (think black interior, black wheels - Scuderia version?). Some of other colors are interesting as well... Silver, light gray. I really don't like the wheels though - too shiny almost like they are missing something.
