If someone can explain to me how to attach it to a posting, I've got a great JPEG picture that I can share with the Forum members. It shows all three reds, side-by-side, in one picture. They include: Crimson Pearl, InfraRed, and the new Passion Red.

You need to upload to a host site first. Goto photobucket.com (its free) then you upload to their site and copy the url they supply after youu post (youll see its easy)

Thanks for the comparison photo--I think the XLR's look great in the 'Crimson Pearl,' as it is very iridescent and has alot of depth to the color, sort of a blue-red shade, whereas the Red Line is darker, and still very nice (and 'XLR I FL,' I think the CTS Sport looks great in the Red Line Color--the '07 'Sport' exterior changes for the CTS model looks really good.)

Thanks for the side-by-side photo. I originally had a 2004 Crimson Pearl and traded it for a 2006 Infra-Red. When looking at photos or seeing them individually at the dealer, I did not see a real difference. I had to park them side-by-side (as in your photo) to notice the difference between the two. I chose to trade for the 2006 as much for the upgrades in the XLR as for the color choice. I guess that I would have to see the new red in person to see if I liked it. It appears that it doesn't have as much of a metallic paint look to it as the other Reds.

Jim, as far as I know, the passion red is the victory red of the C6 vette - it`s non metallic.

Hans, I think that you are correct. I am not a big fan of that red. We did have a 2002 corvette in the magnetic red metallic, which was more like a burgundy or the XLR infra red. I wasn't going to get the special edition anyway, just a wait a few years and then get a V when my XLR gets close to going out of warranty. Jim

You are correct, Passion Red has NO metallic. It is a flat, fire-engine red.

And yes, magnetic red on a Corvette looks a lot like infrared on an XLR because, in fact, they are the same color - - just with different names. As I said previously, GM apparently couldn't be creative enough to come up with really unique, high-quality paints for their $75K and $100K vehicles. But then again, there is that violet or purple for 2007.
