Well he is asking $230k. Let's see if it is still there in 4 weeks.
The old joke is "
"why are there yellow and blue Ferrari's?"
"So your second one can be different"
I agree with you on the colour. Most Ferraris are red because most people who want a Ferrari want a red Ferrari. So in my observations over the years the red ones either sell quicker, get more money or both. It would be interesting to survey Ferrari owners. I bet 90%+ of first time Ferrari buyers, buy a red one. Second time maybe move to something else.
Most people buy only red Ferraris because they have no imagination
. It hasn't always been that way though, and in the early days of Ferrari history the cars were ordered in all shades, and red was just another colour. The factory team cars were almost always dark red which is the Italian national racing colour. Some team cars were Not
red though. Many of the customer race cars were painted in the teams national race colours too. The "it must be red" phenomena came about in the 1970-1980's, perhaps influenced by the Magnum PI series which was hugely popular at the time.
I agree that the majority of buyers want red, just look at the production statistics. This particularly applies to the V8's but the V12 cars are often ordered in colours other than red.
My first Ferrari was dark metallic green (still own it), then it went blue, blue, red (race car), red, F1 red (race car), yellow, dark red. So personally I prefer non-red colours; but if you are buying 2nd hand it can be tough to buy anything but red, which account for my red cars
