After painting the facia boards etc on our bungalow red two years ago, the wife now wants it dark grey.. That happened to be my suggestion in the first place..
Anyway, is it necessary to undercoat over the red? They are both dark colours.

you must undercoat it. make sure you wash it down & sand it first.

A gloss requires an undercoat and will peel without it, but certain exterior paints can be self-undercoating. Thorough preparation is still required though.
