Not a big fan of red cars in general, but the HR looks fantastic in person. Almost makes me want one. I think the AB also looks really good as well.

Havana Red is the faster color!! :good: :cheerie::woot::drive::ohyeah:
Definitely drove my red Corolla more aggressively on the regular than my AB G70. Must be the color!
Truth be told, the HR color was what kept me from wanting a 3.3t Dynamic. Draws too much attention

What is the issue with red on these cars, again? Manufacturing issue or stability or something?
Something about the paint from the factory. Were on hold for a while or something. Not sure if it has anything to do with the current HR cars out in the road today..?

I've been avoiding gray/silver cars since I've had a few, but I have to say the santiago silver on chrome was impressive first hand. Mallorca Blue and the Red are impressive. I was into Siberian Ice initially but I have to say the color has waned on me. It's appealing under certain light conditions but looks like a regular white car after sundown.

yes, It had to do with an inconsistency in color matching the panels on some cars.
I also heard it was about color matching BETWEEN cars. Although, the HR painted G70s I have seen have been perfect. Weird as HR is carried over from the G80.

Yes, 3.3T Havana Red Prestige RWD. I've never had a red car before but the HR is gorgeous, one of the best looking red in the market.
Went and looked again today at multiple colors...HR, MB, White, and HG. Apparently, getting your hands on a HG at this point in the Midwest is nearly impossible. Found this quite troubling, especially for a brand that is trying so desperately to build itself. Was getting ready to leave when I saw the dealers personal car...Adriatic Blue with Gray interior. I’m sold!!! Might be a little dark, and will certainly take more work to keep clean, but it was spectacular in the sun. Now, all I have to do is convince the owner to sell me his daily car. Thanks to all of you for the opinions but, in the end, the choice for me was clear. I just needed to see it with my own eyes in the right light! Can’t wait...

Glad you found a color you like. You should post some pics if you decide to get it.

If I didn't want the 3.3 Sport, that's the color combo I would have wanted. Best of luck! Post some pics once you get your G70!

Not a single regret picking AB. It's hard to stop staring and the pearl in the paint makes it transform (unfortunately only in color, not into a robot) in varied lighting. Does show a decent bit of dirt up close, but I'm going to be washing weekly anyways.
I have to agree with the AB, I traveled half way across the country and had never seen it in person. When I saw it parked in the lot I knew I made the right decision. In full sun it is brilliant.

I was considering the Havana Red but I ended up deciding for Silver. It just gives the car a more high-end (luxury) look in my opinion. My previous car was a sporty Red FR-S so it could also be that I was tired of driving in a red car...
I have to say that silver is a really good color on the G70, even more so in Sport. All my cars have been white, black or grey and I really want a color for my next one but every time I see a picture of the G70 in Santiago Silver I find it stunning... Decisions decision
