The Flares was first shown at the 1972 Turin Motor Show, at which time it was painted metallic grey:

It was repainted metallic blue for the 1973 Geneva and Barcelona Motor Shows:

It was retained by Giovanni Michelotti as his personal car for the rest of his life.

Because i'm the curator of the Michelotti's archive i can confirm that the Flares was his personal car until he died.
Take a look at the 6:05 min of this video realized last year:

Today the car is still in existance.
