You will be happy with the Dark CandyApple Red. Looks great and hides dirt between washes.

I am going to be working through the numbers with my dealer in April to see if it makes sense to swap my 2008 GT for a new one. If that happens ,more then likely going with CandyApple again. Also considering the Kona Blue as well.

The compliments will be coming starting the day you put it in your driveway. Great color for an American Classic Muscle Car !

YouTube - 2011 Mustang V8 Burnouts

Well looks like we have an official comparison.

These are two different mustang GT 5.0's doing burn outs. The first car is Race Red and the second car is Red Candy. You can even see the tip of the Red Candy mustang when the Race Red 5.0 is doing it's first burn. (11sec - 15sec).

This settles my fears that the Race Red was not the color I saw at the show because of some of the orangy red looking spy shots. I went with the Race Red and i'm glad i did.

I just ordered my 2011 yesterday in black. I'm glad you posted about the Jax Wax bc I live over by South Vienna so I have to deal with Ohio winters too. Thanks for the tip!

The gray would be hot, and in my opinion different. As you have probably already seen there are a lot of black 2011's already out there. And if it means anything to you to be different from the rest, I'd go with the gray. Plus I think about the customizations that would go well with it. Dark or black colored rims, carbon fiber colored taillights..the list goes on!

I've seen the Candy Red 2010 and I think it looks pretty good. It's shade really seems to react differently depending on the lighting and angle, pictures of it don't really represent it well (due to the clear coat?).
