New member here. Thanks everyone for the great posts. I've learned a lot in these forums. I'm in the market for a GT500 CFTP. Was debating between Iconic Silver with black stripes or Black with white stripes. The positive with the silver is that I know its more of a classic color and the black trim pops more. But there is something about the black with white strips that to me, looks like no other color offered. The stance is menacing! There is something I love about the headlights on the black. The black trim around the headlights blends in with the car and I think it makes for best front end of all the colors. To me the headlights look by far the best with the black paint. I know the black will be a pain to keep clean but this thing will be well kept so I'm not worried about that. General thoughts on the two? I'm leaning black as I think overall look is menacing. If I saw that in my rear view mirror I'm getting out of the way haha.

Black. I've owned multiple colors. Black is the best. PPF it and it's way easier to manage... you won't get swirls and scratches.

The white stripes aren't my thing, but they make black PPF and you can always cover the white stripes easy enough to change the look of your car anytime temporarily.

Personally, when it comes to black, I prefer the stripe delete version. That thing is just wicked.

But silver with black stripes is a strong second choice.

Thanks for the replies. This GT500 forum is awesome. Love the participation. Question - one post above mentioned to also add a signature. I guess that means just in the post? I couldn't find a way to do that in my profile. I just negotiated a 2022 Black GT500 with painted white stripes CFTP. Hope to close it today. I love the stripes. I caught the bug. Nobody in my town has a GT500. Time to shake it up around here.

2022 Shadow Black GT500s received Wimbledon White painted stripes. It鈥檚 the only year Wimbledon White stripes were on Shadow Black, otherwise it is Oxford White. The white colors are different.
The 2022 I'm negotiating has Oxford White Stripes. Here is the sticker.

I'm in Northern NJ. I've never seen a GT500 outside of a dealership and a car show. Glad to read you're bringing one into the area. Please post up the details if and when you close the deal. FWIW, I saw a 2021 black CFTP w Painted white stripes in All American Ford of Paramus a year and a half ago. 30k ADM.

Congratulations Steve, and welcome to the GT500 forum. There is no better feeling than being able to own and drive a car of your choosing. And since you chose a '22 GT500 with just what you wanted you will enjoy that feeling of pride and satisfaction every day. Looking forward to the photos of your Bad Ass Shelby after you take delivery. 馃憦馃帀
