The varianto series are, as the rest of the Schuco cars, made in a lot of colours and colour variations. For most cars the common colours are: red, pale stone, mid blue en turquoise. The colours mid-grey and the green and blue variations are more difficult to find. In the next tables you find the colours which I came along in the past 12 years. This does not mean that other colours and colour variations do not exist.

If you want to know if a car has it's original paint you can check the following points: Bottom (Has the car been opened. Look at the tabs), look at the headlight through the hole near the front wheels, the varnish (must be smooth) and smell the paint. You can also look for very fine fissures in the colour i.e. Craquelure. All modern colours are water-based and won't develop those fissures, it is a distinctive feature of alcohol-based colours. And finally (this counts for all purchases) one should always determine whether the seller is reliable or not.
