    Default What colour? if not red...

    I sold my Testarossa at the end of last year (only a couple months ago) and already im missing it hugely. So i've pretty much decided to buy a 355 spider, which im pretty sure will be slightly more practical... I absolutely loved the Testa, and as far as im concerned there is only one colour for a Testarossa, that being red.
    Now im looking at 355's, whilst red does look awesome, im swaying toward something a little more understated, im loving the dark blue, preferably with cream or tan interior.
    I was just wondering if the colour affects the price of the car much, the only reason i ask is that the prices seem to be all over the place, they vary from mid 35's all the way through to 60 ish... is there a particular model/year to steer clear of?
    Thoughts and advise much appreciated, thanks...

    If not Red, I would personally go for TDF, Black or Yellow.

    Everyone has been helping me so...

    Rardley motors has just got a TDF with Grigio Chiaro hide and blue carpets F355 Spider in.

    Its 1998 and has F1 tranny.

    I have not viewed it in person, but am told it is a stonker.

    Yep, its a dark navy blue. TDF = Tour De France.

    P.S. Just noticed that the chap who owns Rardley Motors has the same last name as me! No connection I promise ha ha ha.

    Le mans, and TDF blue look to be very similar, is there any difference? or are they the same colour... confusing!
