Complete Rundown Of Green Ferrari Shades

Complete Rundown Of Green Ferrari Shades

In a new series of articles we are going to take a look at all the shades Ferrari used and uses to grace their cars. Starting off with green, or Verde in Italian.

BP Green

BP Green Ferrari 488 Spider

BP Green was a colour used by David Piper during his privateer career. The majority of cars he campaigned were painted in this bright shade of green which derived from the shade of green oil company BP used. Piper painted his cars green in exchange for BP sponsorship. This 488 Spider is a Tailor Made project done by Maranello Motors GmbH (Cologne, Germany).

Verde Jewel

Verde Jewel Ferrari 488 Pista

First seen on five cars used for the 70th anniversary livery 'The Green Jewel' in 2017, Verde Jewel is a bright shade of green inspired by the 1965 Ferrari 365 P2 of David Piper. Ferrari built just 6 units of this racing car, which was entered in the 1965 race season alongside the 275 P2 and 330 P2. One of them was acquired by long-time Ferrari customer team David Piper Racing. The car was painted in the characteristic green colour of the British team.

    There is also a beautiful shade of green on a 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica. If I am not mistaken the color is Verde Bottiglia 16.364. Pictures of the car can be found easily on the web.

    Verde Tevere?

  • Włodek


    i think the verde scuro had 2 shades. The one from the Dino and later on Testarossa/348. You can see it on

    PS. Zeltweg was the airport, but later there was bulit a race track nearby. And since 1970 there are races there since. It was called Zeltweg, Oesterreichring, A1Ring, RedBullRing, Spielberg. But in Austria they call it all the time traditionally Zeltweg.
