Maybe they were thinking that they know a bit more than the average ignorant internet forum member...

The reason for the name (and the stripes) is the 50th Anniversary of the Frecce tricolori of the Italian Air Force.



It even says so in the article linked to (IN BIG, BOLD LETTERS) in the OP:

"The particular Zonda you see is the Tricolore, a special edition made to celebrate a squadron of the Italian air force named the Frecce Tricolori. The squadron is a demonstration team composed of nine planes and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Tricolore is painted to match the squadron's planes"


I really wish people would THINK a bit before hitting the "submit reply" button...
