RCT vs CRT

So, I'm guessing CRT won't have as much of a color change from shade to sun. I really like the way my RJT changes from burgundy in the shade to bright red in the sun. I'm glad I got mine before the switch

To me...the old color had a little more "jewel" to it, and the new one more "red"...

Either one looks very sharp - and that Corvette with the black wheels looks especially stunning!!

I think the ZL1 would look awesome in the same color setup as that Vette... Pretty sure his has become my front runner now due to seeing this Vette...

CRT is a good mix between Victory Red and RJT... add some more black accents like the Vette and bingo...

Many old posts on the RJT when it first came out on the 2010 camaro's were the complaints or concerns of the plactic parts vs the metal paint not matching. I notice it on the 7th and 9th picture of the front bumper on the camaro. I don't seem to notice the fiberglass vs the plastic parts on the CRT Vets not matching. But both colors are awesome and bring back memories of the candy apple custom paint jobs in the 60's.

Alright so my parents are planning on getting a 2012 Equinox and I went to the dealership today to check it out. While I was there, I looked at a Cruze and a Sonic in CRT......wow. This color is absolutely amazing and pictures don't do it justice!!

Funny I've always said I'm not a Red or Yellow kind of guy, but this one being darker really looked good. Now I need to see Ashen Gray to make the final decision...

I thought there was more of a color difference between the two colors but they seem way to similar.

I've never been a fan of RJT but the new CRT looks great with the black accents. Definitely better than RJT... I think this combo would look great on the ZL1..

What do you all think?
Crystal red tintcoat rocks. Gold metalflake over the red base color brings out the best hues of red in all lighting conditions IMHO. It gives the color an even tone, depth, and warmth across the entire light spectrum. We have a 2012 Cruze with it, and I must say, it's a jewel!

I saw it under florescent light then in the dark and as the sun came up it looked great in all conditions... Seemed to change with the lighting were as RJT did not.

Actually all the metallic colors do.. just seemed as the sun came up that morning the CRT got much lighter in the bight sun and was very dark looking in the shade...

Don't mean to say one is better than the other... RJT rocks too..

I like the CRT over just a normal victory red color... however, i'd have to see it in person before deciphering between RJT and CRT
