'Solar Flare' is what Lexus fans named the Orange for it's RC-F. See the article below for more info:

A competition was held on social media to name one of the eye-catching colors that will be available on the new Lexus RC F, and the brand has chosen a winner.

This bright orange will be called “Solar Flare,” a name that was submitted by five different commenters on Lexus’ Facebook page. The final list was comprised of 10 different choices, which were presented to Lexus UK Director Richard Balshaw, who selected the overall winner.

The RC F will hit dealerships sometime in very late 2014, sporting the most powerful V8 Lexus has ever stuffed in a production car. Exact numbers are still not available, but Lexus says the car will have more than 450 hp.

Not too bad but I think they could have done better. Lexus should have stated the alteratives that almost made it.

Yea I think the best way to do this competition would have been to pick a top 3 or 5 and then have everybody vote on it. Solar Flare is good, but it isn't the most creative name that I have ever heard.

That would have been great and have a poll going on their own website where people can vote. I would have loved to see that.

But I like the name, it creates that feeling you need for a color like this that is going onto a true sports car. But what's much more important is that they came up with a epic looking orange, I could really careless about what they decide to call it

We should do a recap on the suggestions that we made on here and vote. Just our own little thing.

I have a feeling some of the funnier ones will get tons of votes.

i'm with you on that idea
you should get a poll up on this on all the colors listed.
i bet the guys at clublexus probably have their very own poll going already

I'd be up for this, let's put it together soon.

I just feel like this competition ended up being a bit of a let down. With so many suggestions, they just ended up choosing one of them. I'm sure someone in their company could have came up with this name too, it doesn't feel like the fans were really all that involved in the end.

It's not really a let down for me since the name they went with is one i really like and one that I think is suitable for what the RC is.

thinking about it that is true, not many people know the names of the colors, even if they do and it's disappointing it doesn't even matter, it's more about how the color actually look rather than what it's called.

did lexus ever do that before... using a different name for a color in a different nation? i never knew they did that.

my source is autoguide.com
