GT : Silver highlight in bumper or not?

Hey Guys,

I shouldn't have made a new post about this but I am a bit confused.

In some GT photos there is silver highlighting on the bottom of the front and rear bumpers, and in some, the area is just the same colour as the car.

I really like that treatment and in my opinion, it makes a hell of a difference even though it is only a small thing.

My question : Is this highlighting going to be on all GTs or just the higher model? To me the silver highlighting would be something to tell me straight away or from a distance whether it is a GT or not.

Well from the photos on the fpv website it appears that the GT-P will be the only FPV Falcon wearing the silver highlights

Also it mentions in the specifications on the FPV website that only the GT-P will have the bumper accents, the Pursuit and GT have body coloured sections.

Yes, correct and the car at the SMS is reported to be a GT-P but it has just the GT badges on it.

I agree - funny how small things make such a big difference.
Hope they both get the silver accents - although if that were the case, then badging would be the only aspect that separates the two.

I agree it looks MUCH better with the silver...

On the FPV site, under the accessories or options list it says that theyre N/A on GT and the ute... and standard on the GT-P..
