It is a matter of choice
Some see Rosso Red as true Alfa heritage, & Ferrari stole the lymelight when he left Alfa to start up his own racing team.
When buying mine i eleminated red, due to the fact it's a common choice colour for the masses who buy Alfa.
I thought of grey, but wasn't sure of which tone to pick? The light grey or dark grey? To bland, lets move on.
Black show every little mark & everytime you clean it, you find even more scratchs, scuffs, ect.
Monte Carlo blue, is a bit limp wristed, especially a spider in that colour. More suited for a woman.
Silver is a bit bland, not much you can do with that colour ( doesn't shine very well ) what you see is what you get.
Gold? #1 question. What was you think with that one Alfa?
Then i came across the Misano blue, which has a two tone affect in strong sun light ( almost like a pearl paint ), the metalic flake is strong & glints in the sun well. At night it looks midnight blue under the bright lite street lamps.
It's a classy unusual shade of paint for Alfa, which shines very well & looks good all year round ( not just in summer ). It's also used on a lot of Alfa's promotions from when they was on sale new, video, car online reviews, & is at the top of the page on wikipedia ( not Alfa red ). So my choice was set Misano blue, 3.2 V6, black & grey (not blue & tobacco) trim, & 18" horse shoes alloys. Waited 8 months to find that spec Brera, & have never once regretted it
