    Championship White has always been "off-white". The color comes as a tribute to their 1st winning Formula 1 Car the RA272. You can see the contrast between the white tiles and the actual car in the picture here.

    This.

    I sprayed some Taffeta White and noticed how 'rosy' it was. This is not a matter of new vs old paint.
    White Orchid Pearle is nice but would look weird on an old ITR.

    Makes it hard to decide. I only know that it won't be red...
    Polished Metal can be the closest to the Prototype color, but I'm afraid that it will disappoint me. The blue is really nice, but I've always loved white with black details and tinted windows contrast.
