Redline Red Tri-Coat Pearl VS Tor Red?

My wife and I have a deal pending on a 2015 Challenger that we have not seen in person yet. The window sticker states that it is Redline Red Tri-Coat Pearl. The photos I have seen of the car are beautiful and it is exactly what we are looking for. I have photos of the car in bright light as well as overcast rain and they look good.


However, I'm really confused. When I look at the color sample on the Dodge website the samples make the car look almost Maroon or really dark red. And on the website the Tor Red sample looks more like the actual photos of the car.


Can any of you owners of these two colors post photos or tell me your impression of the website color vs real life?


Ideally I would go look at the car but I can't do that until Saturday at the earliest. Again the photos of it look beautiful and I don't really care what the name of the color is. I'm just confused when I compare it to the website.
Obviously if we get there and the color is just unacceptable in real life we will move on to something different. I can't imagine ordering a car based on the color samples on the Dodge site.

Can be tough to tell difference from pics, but in person the Redline is darker; Torred almost has a suggestion of orange to it.

This is a picture of the car taken today. It's overcast and raining. It looks nothing like the color on Dodge's website.

Thanks for posting some pictures. Color is such a subjective thing. As long as it's not maroon I'll be cool with it.

Just ignore the colors on the dodge build site. They are so far off that it isn't even funny. Torred has more pop while redline has more depth.

Here is a side by side. Torred shaker on the right. My redline pearl on the left. They both look red by themselves, but next to each other the torred has a little orange in it. I've named my challenger Jessica as it reminds me of Jessica Rabbit's red lipstick. Also the car's attitude is very Jessica like.. a bit wild and you have to keep her under control.

Thanks @jaillocks that's the photo I needed to see. I dated a Jessica many years ago... bat-shit crazy.

RP is also metallic, while Torred is non-metallic.

One more for you. In my opinion, this is a very accurate picture of redline red pearl. This is not my car. No credit taken. The color really pops in the sunshine, which we don't get too much of here in the PacNW. It has no maroon in it at all.
