If it's a 17-plate, it'll be Race Red. Masquerading as Competition Orange thanks to the cellphone snap.

Yes, race red, strong sunlight behind me coming over the stand of the Bradford city football ground must have blinded my camera phone

Got all the options apart from alloys which is good as i prefer the black ones.
It's on a 17 plate because it's been a showroom static demo for 3 months so has no mileage

If you look up that colour on the configurator there is definitely a hint of orange.

Great colour; I took the coward's route and went for Magnetic grey so it would attract less unwelcome attention whilst parked on the street (ie, all the time).

I originally ordered mine in ruby red, but due to a long and boring story, ended up with race red instead. I still love the ruby, but the race red is beautiful in the metal, and I wouldn't swap it now.

Same here I originally wanted triple yellow but saw mine parked between two triple yellow ones, one with stripes and one without and mine was the louder shinier shoutier car by far . You will no what I mean sun on race red is awesome. Still getting used to people taking pics of it and calling it car porn biggrin

A lovely guy in a Maserati(!) followed me for about a mile to my house a few weeks ago, because he wanted a look around the car. I've never had such an attention-grabbing car, it's kind of weird!
