Sunburst Orange Pearl

Has anyone got this color yet? And is there any other photos from consumers instead of reviewers?

I guess no 9thgen member has one yet. But I do know that Clawson Honda in Fresno shows both the sunburst orange pearl in coupe and sedan on their new inventory listing.

A dealer in Ohio, a few hours away from me has one listed on their site. I'm not sure if it's actually in though. I'm in the midst of negotiating my purchase of the red SI coupe I drove this Saturday. I'm very interested to see the color as well.

the colour only turns orange in the sun. when the sunlight hits it its really orange pearly shine but with out light reflecting off it it does look dark red. i bought it for the dark red look. i have a dark red teg and i ordered a black model but its taking for ever to come in. i know what the black looks like and the SOB caught me off guard. its something else it interest me over the black so i took it lol. really shows the curves depth of the car. that pic is in no sunlight.

ill post more pics later

Need to see it in sunlight, looks a lot better in the sun. That picture is not doing it. Reminds me of Habanero Red instead of Redline Orange.

Is it the same Sunburst Orange used on the Element. If so, yes the color is hard to photograph. In the sun, it is a very striking color.

I think it's different from the sunburst, but it holds the same concept. A picture never does the scene any justice. BTW come to think of it, the Element has been canceled right.

Well glad to see one of these finally hit the market. I was wondering when they would paint one the orange. That color definitely looks red in the shade but I would LOVE to see some pics in the sunlight. Can't wait till you post some so we can live vicariously through you. :wigglesmiley:

It's true what they say, that a camera never does the scene any justice.

I have to see it in person, especially in sedan form. I am also really interested in this color because of it's uniqueness and 'depth' as well that I've seen of the coupe from some pictures at the last NY Auto Show. I hope when I see it in person it will look similar to Habanero Red, how would you compare the two?
