Ford has just unveiled its 2020 Mustang GT and has opted to bring back some heritage colours options.
We’re not going to lie – they’re sexy.
A few years back, the Engineering Director of Ford had the police show up at his house. Fortunately, this wasn't the kind of incident that would afford him a Netflix True Crime original. No, his neighbours simply found his Mustang Shelby to be too loud. This brush with the law got himself and fellow Mustang engineers to thinking -- there had to be a way to make the exhaust quieter in the next generation of Ponies. There was, and they called it Quiet Mode. But for Mustang fans out there who appreciate the roar of the engine jumping to life, that hasn't been stripped out. In fact, Aussies in particular wanted the 2018 Mustangs to be louder. Suffice to say, it's been a complicated journey.Read more
The MY20 Mustang will have four different colour options – ‘Grabber Lime’, Twister Orange, Iconic Silver and the ever-iconic Red Hot.
Grabber Blue has been previously offered in the range. The Grabber palette itself is a throwback to paintwork offered by Ford in the early 1970s.
While bright greens and oranges can be a bit of a gamble, they’re looking damn fine on the bodies of these ponies.
And if anyone wants to be just that little bit more baller, there’s a $1,000 option to add a Black Shadow Pack. As the name suggests, it adds a whole lot of black, such as the roof, bonnet and side stripes, ten-spoke 19-inch alloys, grille badging and guard badging.
And if you opt for one of the models with a High Rise rear wing you’ll be able to get a black spoiler. Hot.
“These bright, vibrant retro colours are trending in design ” in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances,” said barb Whalen, Ford’s colour and materials manager.
“Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colours that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be. And your car is an extension of that.”
The 2020 Mustang will follow in the steps of its predecessors by being available as a convertible or Fastback.
We know that the new Mustangs will hit Australia in November, but we’re still waiting on pricing and full specs.
