It is actually a very dark metallic blue.

Here are some more photos for you including the first pages of the article your shots are from.

Hello,

You can try to contact Provence Miniature Automobiles in France (ehl.43@wanadoo.fr) as they released the 1/43 version and offer prepainted kits so they may have a reference to give.

If you can purchase Motip paints I should be able to give you a can reference.

Thanks Phil, I can purchase motip colors in cans, but I want to stay as far from them as possible. Maybe some gunze color or, the best, ZP ?

Also you could contact Otto-Models. They released a 1/18 resin version a few months ago.

Not sure there is a ZP color available, this alpine color was highly debated on french forums between modelers, as according to different pictures and different events and drivers color seems completely different (it seems that it wasn't always the same color during a same car life depending on sponsors and drivers having it in hands) :roll:
ProvenceMinaitureAuto had to change his color between first builds and next releases as someone pointed he was wrong at first.
So I assume he now should have the true correct reference ! :grinyes:
If I can find a Motip color reference maybe ZP could use it to make the color... :dunno:

AFAIK there was three liveries - light blue, red/yellow and this - metallic blue, what I'm interested in. Please do me a favour and find Motip color - a starting point for a further investigation

Hmm yes as of course you're taking about the V6, but I was myself thinking to the A310 in general, and in this case there were several shades on the same dark metallic blue, more or less dark and with more or less purple reflect, more than the usuall liveries (Aseptogyl, light blue, Calberson...)
refer here if you want to see what I mean:

I will try newt week to find the Motip reference.
