I wish you could get the blue on white with a blue/white leather interior. I love the two tone interior, but it won't go with the blue exterior...so I'm leaning towards silver with black stripes, and red interior.

From the SVT site:

"Two interior color treatments are available, charcoal black and charcoal black with crimson red seat inserts and door trim panels. A GT500 Performance Interior Trim Package is optional. It features a leather-wrapped and stitched instrument panel brow and center console, upgraded door armrests and aluminum pedal covers."

Wish they'd have went with an available white interior.

Another thing I noticed, the SHELBY across the trunk lid was large letters evenly speced across the trunk deck, now the release pics are showing the SHELBY logo alot smaller and bunched up on the left corner. Horrible choice IMHO....

If it were me, I'd like Torch Red w/Black stripes. But seeing as my Dad is choosing the colors, its likely going to be Vista Blue w/Performance White striping.

Any pix anywhere of "Alloy Clearcoat Metallic"?
Called SVT and asked about "Alloy Clearcoat Metallic". I was told that it is a dark grey. Darker than Tungsten grey. Can't say I would have thought of alloy as a dark grey but that's what the man said.

I have yet to see one of these cars up close, only in photos. Can anyone tell me whether the stripes (over the roof, trunk and hood) on the coupe are painted or are the vinyl?

Thanks

These are vinyl stripes.It was too costly to paint them on.Labor costs,conveyor cycle time and more paint.

Are you sure its not a different color all together? I was told that Valencia is closer to what was used on the GTR.

Yes I am sure.I asked PPG at the plant why they dropped Valencia Yellow they laughed and said Ford just changed the name to Grabber Orange and pointed to the bumper sitting on the floor.

Actually I think this color is very close to the "70" Boss.
