Rosso Barchetta

A beautiful darker shade of red. Barchetta, which is Italian for ‘little boat,’ refers to the shape of early Ferrari race cars.

Rosso Berlinetta

In theory, you can’t have a better colour on the Ferrari F12berlinetta, as this colour was specifically made for the car. On top of that, it’s a triple-layer paint, so the sparkle is incredible in direct sunlight. But with a €20.000 price tag, it’s not cheap.

Rosso Cina

Rosso Corsa

Rosso Dino

This shade of red, which appears almost orange, was introduced in the 1960s and reintroduced in 2002 when a Ferrari client wanted his Enzo in this colour. It’s currently part of Ferrari’s historical colour palette.

Rosso Fiorano

Rosso Magma is a new shade we discovered just recently. Originally a Maserati colour, it was commissioned through the Tailor Made programme for a few new Ferraris, including this 488 Pista.

Rosso Maranello Opaco

Based on the Italian word for ‘matte,’ opaco paints are becoming increasingly popular. This one is based on the metallic triple-layer Rosso Maranello shade.

One of the darker hues featured in this article, Rosso Metallizzato is almost hinting to a purple tint as well. Seen here on a Ferrari Testarossa driving through Monte-Carlo.

Rosso Mugello

Named after the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello, this hue of red is a bit darker than usual. In combination with bronze wheels, it just looks perfect.

Rosso Portofino

Rosso Portofino was introduced together with the Ferrari Portofino in 2017.

Rosso Scuderia

One of the brightest shades of red is Rosso Scuderia. In fact, it can appear orange from time to time. Named after the Ferrari Formula 1 team, Rosso Scuderia was used on single-seaters between 2003 and 2007 and replaced Rosso Corsa. Rosso Scuderia is brighter than the standard red, and Scuderia really pops on TV. The first time this was put on a car was with Ferrari Challenge Stradale.

Rosso Singapore

This shade appeared on the Tailor Made Ferrari SG50, which was commissioned by a Ferrari dealer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore. Apart from the unique metallic paint, it also features racing stripes in the Singaporean colours, embroidered Lion headrests, and a unique plaque to commemorate the occasion.

Rosso Vinaccia

Although Rosso Vinaccia translates to ‘red wine’ in English, the inspiration for the colour came from the remains of grapes after the juice is removed.

Rubino Micalizzato

Possibly the darkest shade of Ferrari red is Rubino Micalizzato. This colour is currently only available on request and isn’t part of the regular palette.

    I’d be happy to submit a photo of Rosso Formula 1 2007, as well as Rosso California.

    Did I miss Rosso Fuocco on this list somewhere?

  • lonnie adams

    My Top 5 list would be:
    Rosso Vinaccia is absolutely the best color.
    Rosso Dino would be second
    Rosso Berlinetta/Rosso Scuderia are tied at third
    Rosso Magma would make #5.
