white base/red paint

i have been investigating red paint and related technical issues. today i spoke with a paint dealer that told me the proper way to get red to "flash/jump out/ look vibrant, or other adjectives is to paint a base coat of WHITE. he said that i could use a white primer or a white base coat (enamel/acrylic, or water base). he suggested that it is this reflective base that gives the red the added vavavoomph. sounds reasonable.... have any of you heard of this?

do any of you have an opinion?

(looking to do 64 ruby red)
