When Acid Rush gets phased out...

...could Ford please replace it with that of the Eliminator Concept's colour?: http://www.fasterfords.com/cougar.htm

It looks damn fabulous, and I'd LOVE to see an XR or something getting around in that colour.

This one is darker and more metallic looking. Besides, a Kia would make you think twice about any colour...

If you look on the Ford website under virtual showroom you will see the new colour.

Cheers

Golly, didnt know Acid Rush was ACTUALLY on the way out!

Does anybody have any real pictures of a Zest-mobile, the VR picture isnt a very good indicator of what it looks like.

Re: When Acid Rush gets phased out...

For a colour that seems to be universally unpopular I see plenty on the road. I hated that colour as well and refer to it as "urinal deodorant block yellow" but lately I'm starting to like it. It looks good in some settings but ordinary in others. Night time under street/city lights show it off best.

Zest looks scary on the colour chart but will need to see it on a car. As for Envi, well if it's a clone of Holdens Hothouse then I'll be disappointed. I was hoping for a wild, solid extreme green. For the old timers, does anyone remember the green that came out on the Falcon XC Rally Packs? Now THAT'S an extreme green and something like what I was hoping Envi would be.

Re: When Acid Rush gets phased out...

I actually like the colour
I think it stands out like dogs proverbials, but I like it

And Russ, which is the new colour? I can see Pearl Blue and Lightning Strike, but nothing along the lines of Acid Rush?
