Inferno ??? Does it look more red or more orange

First off. . . Im new to the forum.

Looking to buy the 2LT RS. . . here in the next month or so(believe it or not there are a couple on the lot in the DFW area)

I am contemplating the Inferno Leather(black leather is mighty hot in the summer in Dallas)

So does anyone have pictures of an orange car w/ the inferno leather they can post. and does anyone have pics of a rally red w/ the inferno leather.

If it looks more red, then Ill get it

Thanks for the help! Im excited to be a part of the boards

I have a IOM 2LT/RS with the IO interior. looking at pictures is hard to get the feel of the color, the best suggestion I can give you is to find one this color and look at it, IN THE SUN. you can not appreciate the color still you see it in the sun. but here are a few pictures.

Need to see IOM in person to see how she looks it's kind of like Navy Blue Metallic on the 4th Gen's it looked blue in some light, purple in others.

Like many of the new colors, they really need to be seen in person. Pictures dont do them justice even though the pictures look really good!

It did not look red at all when I saw it.

It looks more red than orange when it is dusk or dark lighted and depending on the lighting source.

I have never been told the interior looked red....If that helps.

IOM is amazing - as the team have said - Flaming orange in bright sunlight with gold highlights along lines of the car. Tomato soup or pumpkin in lower light conditions
Also can look red at night.

Makes me smile every time I look at it

I waited until I saw the color in various lights before buying it.

I have had many folks compliment me on the color since getting the car

Also when looking at pictures, it depends what format the pic was taken. If it was taken in a jpeg it will more red than it actually is. For the true color see it in person or see pictures taken in raw format ....

Look at post #773

Is it a true orange? No

Is it a true red? No

It is orangish red. If orange, IMO, would not have looked as good in the Camaro. You need a contrast between the IOM paint and the interior and I think the color fits the bill perfectly.

The IOM interior looks great in a White, Black, SIM and cyber grey....Only when it is compared to IOM paint is there a true "is it orange" issue.

I believe any more orange in the interior seating as in matching a Summit White Camaro with orange stripes would look off.

HMWH, bottom line, it truely is a personal choice, what looks goot to me, may not look good to you. YOU have to make this choice, adn teh VERY best thing you could do is to go an look at a IOM Camaro IN THE SUN. This the ONLY way you will know for sure.
