I just wanted to make sure that this really is the flat white one since every "build & price" shows them differently than the pictures I've seen.

Which country are you ordering your Abarth from? Here in the UK there is only 1 white colour for the Abarth and it's called Turini 1975 White, which is a metallic white.

Here in Australia the Turini 1975 White is sold as a Solid color (fridge white) and the Tri-Coat white is the optional pearlescent color. According to the U.K. Price list the red and the white are both described as Pastel (non-metallic).

In the US, the "Gelato" is the flat white and "Perla" (Tri-coat) is the metallic.

Just had another look, yes you are correct, both the White and Red are solid colours.

The US Washington. Thank you for the confirmation, yeah the abarth site has way different options than the Fiat USA site & the colours don't show right on the US site like the bianco gelato looking off white, plus the black heritage stripe while you can't actually order it with that option in the US

Yeah, the Fiat USA site has been a hot holy mess for months. I was confused about their white color depictions for awhile too, so you're not alone. In reality, the two whites are very similar. It's just that one is metallic.
