Default The RC F: Hotter in Molten Pearl or InfraRed?

Click the image to open in full size.

In my opinion, these are the two boldest colors on the palate for the RC F.

And full disclosure? Orange is my favorite color, so I'm inclined to favor the crowd-sourced Solar Flare Orange in this match up. That said, I can see the orange being too intense for a lot of folks, and InfraRed looks great in the sun.

So if you had your choice between the orange and red, which would you choose?

you don't get orange unless you want the racer sporty look. both are good but red is prob more versatile

They're both beautiful. I'd lean toward orange, mainly because I'm not actually getting an RCF (yet ). Still loving the ISF

in this case, I like the orange w/ the carbon fiber roof...something different!

That red is too ho-hum luxury...its supposed to be sporty!
