Name of this orange color?

What is the name of the orange metallic color on the C6 vette? Sunburst?
I've seen two cars with a similar color and I really love it. The second is the last model year Saleen before they folded up (2011) it's a little darker shade.

There's actually two oranges used on the C6...here's a picture with the two of them side by side...Atomic Orange Metallic & Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic. AOM is the lighter of the two.

Aww..Thanks for the help. I guess I favor the AOM color. Gorgeous color on the vette.

Yes...that truck does look pretty hot! I've seen both C6 Oranges...but not the Saleen orange. And like you I prefer the AOM...but here's a couple pictures of a truck I saw at Cars & Coffee last year that really knocked me out. It was almost like a color shifting paint...but not.
