Same for the show-car white.


None of the cars shown are Red Hot. Red Hot is not a metallic color - it's a more 'pure' bright red.

(think 4th gen Bright Rally Red or Corvette's Torch Red -- versus Victory Red which has a bit more 'orange' to it....)

Unless the lighting is playing tricks -- the 1LE is Crystal Red Metallic.

Red Rocks Metallic is more 'bronze' or 'rust' than Red. When you compare the two side-to-side, you'll see what I'm talking about. I don't believe any of the cars in the pictures are Red Rock Metallic.
Thanks for clarification. The guy I talked to said it was Red Hot, which I have never heard of. Any time frame on the new colors Fbodfather?

Thanks for the pics!

I will say that chrome strip looks OUT of place on the 1LE. I honestly would say, the chrome strip needs to only stay on the SS/RS model but not the 1LE/RS. And the vent looks out of place on certain colors, I'm not sure why. So many things I dislike about the refresh. I will say the seats are a plus!

It looks like the recent pictures of the rears are showing a diffuser that is lower than the ones shown a couple of weeks back. My guess is that those original images were of non-complete cars hence the missing front diffusor on the silver 1LE that was shown. Also the rear lights are growing on me.

This will be my first new car in 6 years and I'm counting the days till I place my order for my 1LE. Originally was planning on the Orange but I see it's no longer offered. May have to go with the Ashen Grey. I like the sinister look of the dark paint and the dark wheels.
Good choice! The '14 1LE looks smokin hot! And of course we know it performs like a beast!

I like the car just not the chrome strip around the headlights on the RS package. Doesn't fit on the car.

I'm getting one; it's just a question of which color--Summit White or Red Hot and how soon I can get out of my old car without my husband shooting me. =)

Thanks for the pics! I'm dreaming about these cars more than I'm getting anything else done these days. These are just the new jolt I needed.

As for the redesign, I like the new front end including the chrome. I will most likely replace the plastic chrome look with real chrome. That's one thing my husband and I talked about was adding a little more chrome somehow if we had gotten a 13. I guess we're in the minority, but oh well. I like the new fog lamps on the SS better than on prior years too. I miss the "mail slot" though. I liked it better. Now, the back end. I don't mind the new tail lights, but all that gray skirting (or whatever you call it) on the back is going to have to grow on me. Don't get me wrong. I love the car, and I am getting one ASAP, but that is the one thing about the redesign that has me scratching my head. Incidentally, I like the whole back end on the 13's and prior better than this one, but it's still not that bad.

Now, 2014 2SS/RS manual, dual exhaust, short throw shifter, all black interior, decklid blade spoiler (or high wing), but the question is SUMMIT WHITE OR HOT RED?? Can't wait to see the hot red especially in person. The white does look dang awesome though.

Mine is going to be Summit White. Go thru the threads with the pics of the colors.

Got some pics of the 2014 ZL1 Vert at the Indy 500 and noticed there is a new cover over the rear diff and exhaust hanger area under the car making a clean look.

So, have you seen the Bumblebee paint that people are having custom done to match the Bumblebee color? 10,000 was spent on some of those. That's people wantimg the color and money wasn't a issu for them. but I got it special making one color for only one car wont make a profit because what is spent to make the color.

Are the Recaros a manual seat? Power? Heated? I like the seats, but wife likes the heated seats and I have to keep the wife happy.

Still hate the chrome on the front bumper for the RS. Looks so out of place on there.

Great pics for comparison. I'm warming up to the refresh but I agree with the majority (here on this site) about the chrome strip. The hood vent is hot on that 1LE.

They did a 45th stripe delete option. How about a chrome strip delete on the RS pkg?

Quite the contrary I would think, unless they would start charging extra for those colors... Full stripdown on my original black car, repaint in white base layer, then several layers of the PBC30 Sunrise Gold (at 87 USD a quarter liter IIRC) and then the clearcoating, was around 22k USD (at the current EUR/USD exchange rate)...
