New Colour

Looks like there's another new colour on the go, with all this talk about offshores and shockwaves.. the standard venom has been replaced by vixen... According to the Falcon website, it's due out in November...

Don't know if there is too much difference between them though, the new one looks a bit brighter perhaps?

I hope not. Venom looks vibrant to me as the AU series 1 version looked dull. Surelythey would'nt have gone backwards. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Re: New Colour

Hmm Interesting. It will be interesting to see a Venom and a Vixen next to each other to see how different they look.

I wonder why they got rid of Venom and replaced it with Vixen. It looks pretty similar from what I can see.

Personally, I am a big fan of Venom Red. :s6:

Re: New Colour

XR6VCT I think it is being added to the range, and not replacing Venom. I could be wrong though.

Well there was no sign of venom anywhere on the Falcon website...

Re: New Colour

Ok I stand corrected then. I think I still saw venom on the FPV site though.

I hope not, EL/AUI Hot Chillie was pretty dull compared to the old Le Mans red and Venom.

Re: New Colour

Red isn't really my favourite colour on a car anyways....and if it is close to the EL/AU1 colour, I won't be too happy with it
