    A Porsche red is a bright red with a lighter or a very small hint of orange in it, but its still red. I painted a bike a basic orange with the 20 grams of orange pearl and 10 grams of red pearl. It was really sharp!

    Don't go yellow, unless its done perfect it would make it somewhat cheap looking, but there are a few that look ok. A med. grey or a Corvette grey, looks sporty and classie at the sametime. A royal blue is nice and it would be differen't!

    my favorite these days is the black interior and mellenium silvers on the diablos ...just speaks$$$$$....that 355 in dark grey or silver looks great too ...hard to go wrong with a red TR tho ...unique colors make for a hard sell sometimes down the road ....post some pics when done ...good luck ..john

    Mike, my 1st choice was a 'fly yellow', but my family voted me down. My other choice was a 'burgundy' solid 'wine' color! I capitulated, went with the Rossa red and am sincerely happy with it.

    The orange Lambo has peral in the paint.The white lambo also has peral in the paint.The silver,Im not sure about.(refrence photos).You can also have a combination of pearl and metal flake.

    Just remember pearl is hard to paint Mike but I'm sure you can do it knowing body work very well. You don't need a zebra look right! Waiting for pictures though. ;D

    Yeah, the 'orange' color is good too! I think 'JStricker" painted his Finale that color, and it looked really good!
