That was just spin for the tifosi who were ready to pillory him for changing the color at the time. Recall that every country used to have their own color in racing, Germany was silver, Britain was BRG, France was blue, etc. etc. etc., and Italy was scarlet red. This had been part of their national racing heritage for decades, and then some fop comes along and changes it to suit a sponsor?!?!?!?! What else would you expect di Montezemolo to say?
I've also attached a few pics for Cavallino, who says he's having trouble making out the difference.......
Your pics probably solve the question... but let´s not forget that he is a Ferrari fan

I heard Luca di Montezemolo (in an interview with Barry Meguiar) say that they had changed to the new lighter colors because the older colors showed up too dark on TV and pictures.
Well that´s like F1 boss´s saying that they will make the cars at least 1400hp because they appear too slow on TV... your identity is your identity, period.
