Awesome color. My bet would be a black base with red metalflake overlay and 100 coats of clear.

I painted a white Camaro with purple pearl and it turned out real nice. The car had a slightly yellow cast dead on but a purple glow from an angle. Spraying pearl is a lot like spraying candy. If you're not real consistent you'll end up with tiger stripes that you don't see until it's out in the bright sun.
