Tarocco Orange vs Ventura Orange

I tried searching the forums but am having a tough time finding a comparison between Tarocco Orange on the 650S and Ventura Orange on the 570S. I've seen the VO in person and loved it, but am coming close to buying a 650S in TO sight unseen and just want to make sure that these two colors are as similar as I think they are. If anyone who has seen them both in person has any input, I'd sure appreciate it. Or if you happen to have a photo of the two taken side by side, that'd be great as well. Thanks!

I think they are very different. The TO is a lot more red. VO has what looks like gold flake when the sun hits it, I don't think TO did that.

Here's a shot of volcano, McLaren and tarocco orange together. I've included a couple of shots I took of Ventura to show the flake as above. Hope they help?

Hmm, I'll have to take a photo of them together.

Ventura Orange is close to McLaren Orange; Tarocco Orange is more reddish and saturated.

I love tarocco. Both are awesome you can't go wrong. But if I was ordering a car from scratch it would be tarocco. Its like a creamsicle (and who doesn't like a creamsicle, seriously)..

To my eyes Tarroco has a touch of burnt orange in there but we all see colours differently.

It doesn't help that I'm also colorblind! To me, TO and VO look very similar. MO looks way lighter and flatter as others have mentioned. But to the person above who says TO looks like a creamsicle, are you sure about that? I thought MO is the orange that looks like a creamsicle...

I also own a 2014 Viper TA in "TA Orange." I love this color orange. The 2015s have a different orange called "Y'Orange" which I absolutely hate. To me, this looks like a creamsicle and looks like Mclaren Orange:

I think the photo that @J1n posted below shows just how red TO is vs VO or MO. VO and MO are a similar shade of orange where TO is very different.
