I cannot visualise Sparkling Burgundy. It isn't a current colour is it? On which models did it appear p/s.

Sparkling Burgundy was available through AU1 and part of AU2 - look at this link for a pic.

Did you have to post a link of your car? How's the sale going? I know it's off topic, but it's a bloody good colour and a very nice car!

Thanks Russ

I recall it now. Just likw the burgundy of my old XW Fairmont with the white/bone interior. (God I loved that car). The new colour sounds OK. Its now great to see Ford being more adventurous in its colour range and taking a few risks. I haven't understood why car colours from almost all manufacturers in the last 10 -15 years have been so simular, predicatable and boring.

PS: Don't you guys in the East sleep. Its 10.30 is the West now. 12.30 your time. A Milo and off to bed to you - Work tomorrow!!!

12.30? Great, still 1/2 an hour of FF to go before bed. Who needs Milo?

It's been replaced by a colour called Luscious. It's in the latest version of the Falcon brochure. Can't really tell the difference to be honest though.

Then you need to put the two colour chips together - Barossa is a much brighter red and has less metal flake than Luscious which in turn is browner than sparkling burgundy!

I obviously hadn't looked that much into it! but at first glance they did look quite similar.

Still on the market - but then at the rate GT-p's are appearing (slowly) that doesn't matter much.
