Red. No kidding, use a red-oxide primer. Any good primer brand. Krylon, Dupli-Color, Rust-o-leum, they all work pretty good.

Well, it kinda depends how you want that red to look. The red (of course...) for these two Ferraris came from the same can of Sikkens Ferrari Rosso Italia. The left 250 GTO SWB was primed with an oxide red primer, and the 246 GT Dino on the right with a yellow zincromate primer, both from rattle cans. I don't know how well it shows on the picture, but the Dino has a much brighter nuance than the 250's deeper red.
Nowadays, I usually prime all my models with Tamiya's white spray primer. It's extremely fine pigmented and gives a smooth surface when dry, that just need a very quik sanding. I use mostly automotive paint, and the Tamiya spray primer handles that as well.

I'm kind of liking that Tamiya surface primer myself. Sands down real nice. A bit pricey though.
