Crimson Red 'vert ???

Anyone take delivery of a Crimson Red 'vert yet ??

I've seen some absolutely gorgeous pictures of the coupe in Crimson, but still no pics of a Crimson 'vert. The Color is amazing. I can't wait to see how the Crimson looks with the contrast of the ragtop against it.

I take delivery of my 'vert later this month , but am dying to see some pics if anyone has them ?? Thanks!

The Savanna is soooo nice inside the 'vert. I know you are getting the Taupe interior, but I have to admit, I really prefer the Savanna over the Taupe. And these pics just make me sure of that. Savanna looks great with the red. I might not have passed on that Crimson 'vert if it had been equipped with the Savanna interior.

Aren't those pictures GORGEOUS !! I am definitely doubting myself AGAIN on the taupe choice, but it's too late now, my car is about to get on the boat !!

Still, I went with the taupe because otherwise Savanah comes with black carpet & black underpanels on the dash, which was just too dark a look for me. If only they had that Savanah available with matching light colored carpet and underpanels !

oh well....hope I can live with the 'taupe

When do you take delivery Tagman?

Yes, those pics are amazing! I must admit that I stared at them for the longest time.

Sounds like you've got some very good reasons to like the Taupe, so I'm guessing (and hoping) you'll be fine... and I'm glad about that.

My 'vert has already finished production! That was really fast!! Now it is awaiting transport, so it's hard to say how much longer. I suppose it could still be a month more...???

Wow! Stunning color combination! Been lurking around here while I obsess on my next vehicle. The Savanna interior looks great with Crimson but I'm also considering Lemon.

Hmm...not feeling it. Not sure why.


Edit: Yes I do, it's the color contrast of the top to car color. It looks great with the top down, but I've never been taken by significant color contrasts between the soft top and exterior color. That's just me though.

The Crimson with black looks great but I'm leaning toward a lighter interior color for miserable Dallas summers.

I'll post some pictures of my Crimson Red with Taupe interior and walnut. I think it looks pretty good. Honestly I wish I would have gotten the black interior after seeing these pictures.
