Sorry, but this color was called Merlot, and not Barrique Red. It is a much more deep burgundy color than Barrique Red is.

for some reason i can not get used to those maroon color cars/bikes/or anything maroon....

the color makes the cars look old as soon as you drive them out the dealership.

I understand how you feel, this color actually doesn't look that bad on the Z but one much bigger cars its just aweful, but everyone has their own tastes & if they love this color more power to them...

it just doesn't look right to me, even on the Z...just looks...odd. Not ugly or anything extreme like that, just not an attractive color IMO. On any vehicle for that matter.

Merlot red would look perfect on an M6 convertible with tan interior

Nahh, Maldives Blue looks best with Black. Best looking color to match the tan top with is the Sapphire like Rosies car.

Traitor!

I'm not actually talking about the top though. I agree that the black top looks better. I'm talking about the interior. Maldives blue with beige leather looks the best! (biased opinion)

Here's my car......the tan and black is good and bad...it came this way. My only requirement was that I didn't want it black inside and outside.

I'd really like to see a Merlot coupe, it would be stunning. Too bad there aren't any.
