Still no correct answer. Hint, it's a very rare blue.

The blue Ferrari has been available since the end of the 1940s, after the production of the Ferraris began in 1947. The Ferrari model 166 Inter was produced, from 1948 to 1950, in different colors including red, black and blue. Since this early date a variety of different shades of blue have been used for various models, including 195 S LeMans, 225S 'Riverside', 250MM, 166MM Spyder and 166 Mille Miglia to name just a few. The different shades include light blue, pale metallic blue (aka Tour de France blue), midnight blue, evening blue, metallic evening blue and dark blue.

Perhaps a photo hint will help.

p.s. Again, it's a very are color, that one seldom hears about outside of "ferrari speak".

I agree with boxster6354. Ely Blue is the correct answer! I found it looking for actors that played Tarzan and cross referenced with Ferrari colors. I thought I was the first to find the answer . While I was searching, boxster6354 beat me to the punch

Ely Blue is correct ! It's a close call here though. I may have to call it a tie and come up with two "action red" JD Keychains.
