Well its called ruby red in the uk, but I'm pretty sure its bordeaux for you lot. Its a deep dark metallic red. If you cover it in zymol it almost looks like wet blood (in a sexy way).

None of my other pics are as good I'm afraid (the top one was taken by a friend and is pretty much magazine quality imho). Still here are a few :

First two are driver training on an airfield (ones not my car but the same paint), unfortunately the light is really flat.







This one is coming back from lemans queuing up for the channel tunnel, car is caked in dust though so it looks really dull :(





Anyway sadly I don't have any pics of the car gleaming, I'm not one much for polishing I'm afraid ;)

Its worth noting that you have different coloured daylight (nicer imho) so no shots from the UK are really that useful imho. The lemans one is in france with nicer light than the uk, but the car was sat in a dusty camp site at the track for 4 days so not exactly gleaming.

Thats a cerbera next door. Best thing about lemans is the convoy across france on the way there. Loads of exotics moving at pace and great spirit as its mostly brits. The french are really cool about it though and wave etc :)

If you had a load of sports cars driving through Britain you get locals bitching about the noise & danger and demanding you bugger off...

I don't think Ruby Red and Bordeaux Red Pearl are the same thing. I've seen BRP in person (and gotten a ride) and noticed that appears darker and less metallic than Ruby Red. BRP is more maroon and Ruby is more, well... ruby. Compare the pic above with this:
