Phantom

Sorry if this has been asked before but i have tried the search and it didnt return anything

So please point me in the right direction if it has been asked

The local ford dealer here told me that phantom has been discontinued now.. is this right ?

Was looking forward to getting a nice XR in one

Cheers

Chris

Re: Phantom

So theres the new silver and a new red but what else bold to replace these colours?

Would love to see a blue in between blueprint and ED's/EF's Cobalt blue.

Why have they axed them for??? They were good colors, the most popular even. Why would they axe the popular colors for?

Re: Phantom

Because they are Ford, they get rid of everything popular and exciting and shove in replacements that are just good for business shame on you polities, hang your head in shame because this is a shocking decision.

Re: Phantom

Can't believe Phantom is going as well. Hopefully a new series of hero colours will be released soon.

Re: Phantom

Do we have any real proof of this, I hardly think removing a few colours from a car lineup is worthy of hanging is head in shame what geoff polites has done for Ford Australia far makes up for anything he could possibly do with the colour lineup.

Re: Phantom

I would say it is for resale value reasons, first they were limited XR colours so pretty rare anyway, then to have the colours on cars with a limited range build dates, should make the perspective buyer pay more if he/she really wants that colour. my 2c.
