Lucid red is the 2021 name for the previous rapid red as told to me by a dealer.

Yes, it's the same colour. Actually my order had been registered as a Rapid Red (I've seen a screenshot from my dealer's system), only to turn up as Lucid Red in Etis later on, when the car was produced.
Interestingly, it used to be called Red Hot Metallic for a while, and now it's also called Red Carpet. They can't seem to make up their minds. Probably because they keep looking at it in different kinds of light. :giggle:

The problem with these fancy colours that change with the light is that they are incredibly difficult to get right. Most body repair shops haven't even heard of them, let alone being able to replicate them. Even a good car painter, who knows about them and follows the recipe to a T, can get it wrong. You must take really good care of your car and avoid body damage at all costs, because having it repaired properly is going to be hit and miss. Mostly miss.

No surprise that it is the same red (colour Code D4) except the name.

granted, Ruby Red metallic is a little darker red but Rapid Red does the same molten lava in the sunlight too. It really brings out the body lines.
