New Falcon Colours

Just checking out the Ford site, and I noticed two new colours for the Falcon coming in Feb and March 2004.

Feb 2004 - "Zest" which seems to be a gold/brown colour available on the XT, Futura and Fairmont models

and

March 2004 - "Envi" which is a lighter 'grassier' green which kinda reminds me of the Holden "dunnydore" kermit colour. This colour will only be available on the XR models.

Is it just me, or is Holden and Ford swapping "hero" colours (ie..Holden now has a "Phantom" equivalent deep purple, while Ford is adopting the Kermit colour. Originality seems to be "out the door" these days...

Personally, I like the gold colour, wonder if it will be metallic ?

Re: New Falcon Colours

Envi is Very similar to Hot house, the bommadore colour.
I saw i blue Commy today on the back of a truck, it was very similar t the bright blue of the VP's, but not as nice.

Envi was the colour of one of the Territories at the Sydney Motor Show this year.

Re: New Falcon Colours

I just saw an Envi XR6T about 2 hours ago on Ballarat Rd in Sunshine. Looked pretty ding-dang-diddly awesome. Before that, a Harvest Green XR8, with an always even more awesome BULGE. Twas a good day.
