The red one should be called royal red as it is deeper than the usual rally red and reminds me of a luxury car such as my fathers 1980 New Yorker, and would look smashing with metallic sliver to boot. 

The gray should be called slate as it has that look of real slate. 

There should also be matching panels of that same color, i can picture that royal red er as a special edition with matching nappa leather interior and some really nice wheels.

I have to go with the obvious - SharpRed, after the SharpRed edition, and Steel, because, well, that's what the Tridion is made of!

This settles it then, my second Smart, a convertible, will have black panels and a red cell. I'm happy!

Red: Colorado.

Gray: Acero.

I'm thinking Trojan Red and Cold Steel. I'm not a fan of the vampire genre, but for those folks, we could go with Blood Red and Twilight Sky. :-)

Why complicate things.

Call the red RED and the Grey GREY?

A friend just painted her livingroom "Singapore Sunset Saffron", I call it YELLOW?
