    Yeah, see the Jeremy Clarkson vid where he bought a Ferrari and swore blind that he wouldn't get a red one because it was too common....

    Edit: Later Esprit is lovely, or from this period the De Tomaso Pantera or my favourite and the answer to most car questions: Lancia Strato's (which in Stradale form is best in green )

    Red works on Italian cars, apart from the big cruiser ones that should be blue

    I didn't ... or don't remember seeing it if I did. But even if I did, I'm not entirely sure I'd be taking tips on fashion or good taste from Jezzer.

    About the only thing worse than style advice from Jeremy Clarkson would be getting it from Jeremy Corbyn. /shudder

    Re: Red or White?

    Normally I'd say red, but the amount of (solid) red cars you see where they've faded, I'd have to say white, but neither would be my first choice.

    It's the usual comedic poke at people who always buy a red one, so he sets out to get any colour but...
    Spoiler - He gets a red one in the end. It's just the done thing with Ferraris!

    I seem to remember, back in the day, when he was writing for Autocar, he bought a blue F355. And regretted it straight away. Didn't know he'd then bought a red one...
