The Swiss-Mediterranean city of Lugano in Southern Switzerland is a hotspot for super cars, in no small part due to its proximity to Northern Italy where all the exotic car makers are located. So it comes as no surprise that an absolutely Grigio Ferro Ferrari 488 GTB was spotted there.


 What does surprise us a bit is how fantastic this Grigio Ferro, which is Italian metallic grey, looks on the Ferrari 488 GTB. As a general though unwritten rule, no sports car should ever be painted in a sober and dark color.


It just takes away from the excitement of the whole experience of the ownership. But that is just not the case with the GTB. If anything, we think it looks better in this elegant and dignified color than in traditional Ferrari colors like yellow or red.
