Default Colour suggestions for Assetto Corse (Tamiya's Abarth 500)

The manual doesn't seem to give any recommendations and I don't really like the box art colour. Pictures of your own, or helpful suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am leaning at the moment for gun metal grey but I am a bit weary of small cars in dark colours. Bright silver is also out of the question as it would completely obscure the chrome detailing of the car.

Ciao Niznai,
i'll suggest you white with longitudinal ferrari red strip, on the bottom side and on the midlle, as the Abart version.

Ciao
Max

paint it like a sneaker, it looks like one. That was my plan but couldn't wait for a standard kit to reach the shop so I just bought an m05pro instead.
