Hello all! First post here -- been lurking for a few weeks, and just today [finally] got to test drive a 2014 RRS and fell in love. Was lucky in that the dealership I visited actually had decent sampling of colors to see, and am now completely torn between Firenze red or corris gray. Love them both for different reasons - the firenze just jumps out as an awesome color, whereas the corris gray really seems to work with the lines.

For anyone else who decided to go with one of those colors, or have seen them, any strong opinions? I know color's about as subjective as it gets -- mostly I'm worried that the Firenze red will come across as a cry for attention, esp. for a guy, but at the same time REALLY liked how it looked in the showroom.

I went corris. Word is it will be a 2014 only color. I agree it brings out the lines the best. Would have done black otherwise or if they had that orange from the first sport release.

...OK - I have to come clean... I was just messing with @kinddog since Corris is his color and he's waiting for the 2015... As far as I know, Corris is here to stay. the link to the JLR website was made up.

That said, I think if you're seriously considering red, go for it - it's what you want in your heart, Corris is what you are considering in your head.

Can't go wrong with either. Resale might be better with Corris as red is typically something only a few will wanna buy.
p.s. I have a Corris on order. But with Pimento interior so I get the best of both colors ;)

LOL. Dang. Was hoping it was a special intro color. Oh well.

Firenze Red is not as "loud" as it might look in some shots, it is a classy, darker metallic red that really pops under the bright sun or bright lights, but is otherwise fairly muted. I love it on my 2013 LR4 (see some photos in my Garage.) Had Corris Grey been available when I ordered it though, it would have been a tough call... I was kind of sick of the monochrome grey / silver / white / black variations of my previous cars, so I would have probably gone with red anyway. Red also does wonders for your midlife crisis, if you are going through one. ;-) Nothing brightens your day quite like seeing that big hood in front of you sparkle in the sun first thing in the morning.

Thanks all for the input! Definitely "want" the red, largely because my last three cars have all been different forms of gray and it would be nice to do something a little different. Resale is definitely something I hadn't really considered, and of course a nice gray looks beautiful clean and in the sunlight. The dealership had both, will maybe drop by again today (since I doubt they'll both sit there long) and stare at them for a bit!

Get the red. It's obvious that's the one you want. It's an amazing color. You won't be disappointed. And when the time comes for resale you'l find someone. I wouldn't buy the car for resale value, but it for today.

I was torn on this decision as well. Firenze looks awesome on these RRS2s. However, corris looks nice as well, and is a little easier to keep looking clean...... I was really torn. After some consideration, I went with Firenze Red with a Corris gray roof! Problem solved.

Nice! I think I'm decided :). Mind sharing what you went with for interior with the Firenze?

This past summer our dealership had both the Firenze Red and Marmaris Teal Range Rover Sports on their lot. In my opinion, those two colors were the best colors for the 2013 Range Rover Sport. I fell in love with both, but ended up buying the teal Sport simply because that is what we were planning to order on an LR4, and I had a vehicle a couple years ago that was a nearly identical color red as Firenze Red. If I were to buy a new 14 Sport, I would only buy one in Firenze Red. The color is amazing.

Had it not been for my prior car (vette) being candy apple red, would definitely opt for the Firenze red on my build. Never personally like the corris due to lack of contrast with the wheels so I went darker (causeway) on my build....again purely subjective

Ebony/Pimento........ That was another tough one. I think ebony/tan would have looked very nice as well.

I like red on red, as long as there is enough black to break it up. There is plenty of black on the interior, and I did the black trim (inside and out). I absolutely love the way it looks.
