These are the new Production Colors, not the new MSO Defined additions.

Saros appears bluish which I didn't expect. Looks pretty good.

CJ: Do you have any pictures of the 720S in this Saros color? Would love to see them if you do.

Actually neither, it has many colors such as green, red, and yellow metallics over the black base, hence the name Cosmos. I would have to say that it is the new "Fire Black" from what I had seen when putting it up against the Glacier White and Volcano Yellow this past weekend at the Celebration Exotic Car Festival.

Torn on the RED without seeing one in person

Has anyone seen MEMPHIS Red one yet?

Is it Lighter or Darker then VOLCANO Red?

Volcano is absolute perfect Red

Thanks

Looked at Memphis red. Has less depth and "sparkle" than VR. Would also suggest it a few shades lighter. I've opted for a Storm Grey 720s to replace my 12c VR.

I saw the Memphis red today. It's lighter than Volcano Red. I must say I like Volcano Red more. Red is the most difficult color to convey properly across media so I highly recommend you see it in person before locking in your decision.

Seen a few painted in Saros so far, and it is currently my favourite colour for the 720S. It appears to be similar but lighter than Storm Grey, with the smallest hint of blue. If I manage to get a picture in person I will post it, but the car in the picture below is finished in Saros, and it's utterly stunning in my opinion!

I don't think there are any cars at dealers in the US just yet. Odds are it was the paint samples that the dealers should all have. If you're on Long Island, call McLaren Greenwich (ask for Aleksey). Ask them if they have the Memphis Red sample and if this car is still in inventory:

If it's yes to both, you're in luck, drive up and do your own side-by-side comparison.

Here's Saros in Shanghai, though they had blue lighting, so it's a bit less blue. My friend said it looked great though.
