Torch Red

While I like Crimson Pearl and Infrared, for me the old 'vette color Torch Red, which is close to Ferarri red is the hottest color for a sports car. It is a classic look, and easy to keep.

Metal flake colors, when done well, look great. However, "orange peel" can be an issue when cars are mass produced. My Xenon Blue exhibits some orange peel that I've never been happy about.

That may make sense from the customers point of view but it would be a nightmare for GM or any other manufacturer for that matter.

I would love to see the pearl white (as on Escalade) on an XLR but I was told that many colors are problematic with the composite body, including the pearl white. This may explain the limited color palate.

If they come up with light turquoise/teal color with the same metal flake as on the Star Black I would trade Jim's Crimson Pearl for that and give Jim my Star Black one. Yes, he already knows this. :glol But, I won't hold my breath waiting for this to happen. :sleep :sleep :sleep :sleep
