Spanish translation:increíble /muy substancial/muy sólido
Explanation:
Exorbitant possibly implies 'excessively pricey', and is usually collocated with 'costs paid' not 'selling prices/money earned'

I suggest 'increíble'or 'muy sustancial' or 'muy sólido' because of the context (25 times earnings is a very substantial profit)

exorbitante


Explanation:
In this case the intensity of the red-hot color is used as a simile. Talking about earnings "exorbitante" is a poweful word.

Hope it is useful for you.
