I've just noticed your Seven ...I believe this was Colin's ?

Ciao

Absolutely! I found it in San Diego years ago, Colin bought it and restored it. I think it might need a new owner soon.

Other than obvious eye appeal, remember you are driving a fast small projectile and a bright colour will make your presents clear. e.g. Porsche safety colours of the Seventies.
Ducati yellow looks very close, Yellow’s tend to go orange at one end of the spectrum, too dark, and Lemon at the other end, too weak.

That gets my vote, especially in a low gloss finish, - sublime!
