    Yes, it does have metallic flake in it. Next time it's sunny out I'll take some close-up shots of the (burgundy velvet) paint.

    In the mean time I have these shots of an Edge Sport in the same color so you guys can see how the paint looks in direct light vs in the shadows. burgundy_velvet1.jpg

    god i hate how the car looks, and still wish there was more difference between the ecoboost and GT. I feel like it's watered down the Mustang greatly by having them basically the same visually. I've felt this way ever since 2013 when they all started to look the same. There's no real visual upgrade/incentive from a 20k base model and a 50k top tier GT.

    I agree from what pictures I've seen both have the hood vents the only difference I see is the grill and the taillight panel.

    Nail on the head...

    I still don't like what they did with the front end at all. This is a nice color, though.

    It's to red what guard is to green.

    I like red and all, but I'm not sure why this color was added so that we have 3 different shades of red now. I might be proven wrong, but it just doesn't look like a color suited for a mustang.

    But you are one person. People like different things. I think the crimson is a better color for the Mustang than Ruby Red is. I like Ruby Red but to me its not a color for the Mustang same as you don't think the Crimson is.

    I'd say its the color that will replace Ruby Red after the '18my. I could be wrong but RR has had a fairly long run thus far and I'm guessing Ford is looking at changing things up a bit (just as they did with Kona blue to DIB). Most of the more "flashy" colors don't get carried on like your blacks, whites and silvers do.

    2018 Royal Crimson Convertible

    A buddy of mine posted this shot from the Pittsburgh Auto Show of a 2018 Convertible in Royal Crimson. Looks nice, but wouldn't be my choice.

    Same, it looks like a car for an elderly person. But in a good way if that makes sense

    Whoops - sorry guys, didn't find an existing thread for this when I posted it.

    Mine is a bone stock GT / PP / 401a / mag ride / active exhaust. I am going to Benchmark Auto Salon on Monday to start with the thing that is probably most intelligent to do first - full front end clear protection and a nice exterior detail and sealant. I will try to get some better photos once that is done.
