2013 colors - Race Red - really ?

Wife just bought a 2013 Ford Focus SE hatch - Sterling Gray

They had a Race Red on the lot.... but there is something about that "color".
To me, it's not really red... ie - stoplight, ketchup, fire engine, etc -
it's got a dash of maybe orange, pink, or something "bright" ???

So, how do you feel about the "redness" of the 2013 Ford Focus Race Red.

Love it. That's why I got it. It's brighter than other reds but I think that's more to do with how the paint reflects light

Too red for me and I really liked the tinted clearcoat over the candy red but it was a 1 year color but the new Ruby Red is pretty close.

I love it. I'm so bored of white, black and greys.

That's what I have, looks like a normal red to me. I even thought of putting "Feuerwehr Flughafen Frankfurt-am-Main" stickers on the doors, but then decided not to.

Topic should be "Race Red - REALLY!" :)

I love the Race Red, because it is so bright. Stands out on the road and in parking lots. I also like that it is exclusive to the lower trim levels. There's no way I could afford a Ti, but having a colour that I love, that a Ti owner couldn't chose, makes me feel a little bit better about it. It's youthful, too. I'm only in my mid-20s, and a lot of the Focus drivers I see are middle-aged. None of them buy Race Red.

To be honest, though, I only really like Race Red on sedans. The hatch looks too much like a big tomato or something (no offense hatch drivers, you're still cool!)

I actually test drove an ST with that color before deciding to buy the Fusion. It's nice but I wonder how would it hold up in the elements over time(UV fade,etc..).
