GT Earns its Stripes

Bold is beautiful, according to early production figures for the new Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) range.

Wild colours and performance stripes are proving a popular choice on new GT, GTP and Pursuit performance vehicles.

Re: GT Earns its Stripes

This is without doubt the worst possible news item you have ever reported Mr E!!!

Just like the Fast & Furious movie series has given RiceStupidity™ a new lease of life, so will news items like this encourage the style-impaired.

Surely, if these stats are true, then we can expect even more TackyShyte™ for BA2 GT... such tragedy!

Re: GT Earns its Stripes

They must be hiding well.
I have seen 1 GT with stripes, citric.
The most common colour I have seen is citric then blueprint.
I have never seen a blood orange amd the only phantoms were Pursuits except for the pre prod ones at the motorshow.
These stripey ones must all be down south there in mexico.

Yes Flappist,

A few down here south of the border. Seen a phantom with orange stripes the other night in CBD. Seen another at New Oak Ford as well as a burnt orange with black, and a black with silver. Coffey Ford may still have another phantom with orange. They're all staying close to home. Must be we need something to distract us from the weather (as if seeing a GT isn't enough!) Also fits in with Mexico's impeccable sense of style

Oh by the way, when I get sick of the ute (if I ever get it) I am looking to trade up to a Congo Green GT with special order Candy-apple stripes. For a sense of balance I might request matching Candy-apple spoiler to tie-in with the stripes and provide aesthetic balance (imbalance?).

Will go nice with the hat don't you think?

Now for the seat-stitching colour, white to match with the spats, no? Got no problems with the suede though, always in style!

There was only one GT made in Congo Green. Its a GT-P with silver stripes and my mates dad owns it. Looks great in that color, don't know why they dropped it. Makes my XR8 look like a poor cousin. Have to wait another five months to trade up to a GT.

Re: GT Earns its Stripes

You serious theres only one Congo Green GT-P? I was going to say if you didn't live in Geelong you'd be telling porky pies. I've seen that GT-P before, it was parked out in the Gorell car park about a month ago. I even know the bloke that Pre-Dilvered it.

If that is true, then imagine how collectable that car will be down the track...
