Except now it's draped over the brand's most powerful performance auto.
As anticipation builds for the release of the 2020 Shelby GT500, Ford exposed one of the model year's new colors just in time for St. Patrick's Day. The automaker has dipped into what it's referring to as its "heritage-inspired" paint swatches for the new hue, a nod back to vintage Mustang finishes decades ago.
Ford says this eye-searing green is inspired by a similar color offered on Mustangs in the 1970s. "Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colors that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be".More news: Blazes, looting hit Paris as Gilets Jaunes seek new momentum
Unfortunately, you won't be able to drive your holiday-appropriate Grabber Lime Mustang to any of this year's St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Ford cheekily calls it "more potent than krypton-ite".
Ford color and materials manager Barb Whalen described it as "lime green on steroids". We dig the color on the GT500, especially with the black racing stripes and black accents all around the auto.
"These bright, vibrant retro colors are trending in design - in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances", Whalen added.More news: Donald Trump Jr comes to Chelsea Clinton’s defence over NZ massacre remarks
