I heard this from a reliable source within Ford who will remain nameless . As far as when its canned , he doesn't know , but that is what was said .
If true , then why , as I can't see the reason behind it , as it seems a rather popular colour .
About time that canned that colour. When it came out on the AU3 T3, it was easily the best colour around. But now it is just too popular - it almost seems as if ford only make one colour of XR - Blueprint. The quicker they can it, the quicker we can start seeing some different coloured XRs.
AU1 XR8 Auto147.9 rwkw (approx 215 fwkw)
AU2 Wagon HAD Auto
17s, Pacemakers, 3" Intake & Pod filter (The Family Hack)
Blueprint would have to be one of the best 'Ford' blues I have seen since the early ninties. Regardless of its popularity, it will be sad to see it go. I can't imagine any replacement colour being half as vibrant.
