To be honest, I was surprised too because it did look to metalic since I've seen the Blood Orange in real life too, but this is the Lowndes Edition XR8 so it may be slightly different?

Can anyone from Ford clear this up?

Just a photoshop.

My company retouches images for clients every day. If they don't look real, the clients don't pay. The picture maybe originally blood orange, however it's been professionally retouched to make the colour appear more dramatic and to present the car with a nice white background.

The image has also been optimised for clean low-resolution reproduction. This tends to give a crisp, however grainy look to the image. It’s the graininess and contrast that makes the colour appear metallic-like.

Well..….you asked :)
