Would you like your Ferrari 458 Italia in brown? What about purple?
Ferrari 458 Italia color variations - Click above for a high-res image galleryAlthough 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.
