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 ?

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.

The other night I saw one of the new greens on an XR8. I’m not sure if it was the evening light, but it appeared to have a gold metallic through it reminiscent of a candy apple green. Looked great, a reasonably subtle mid-green colour but with a real highlight to it.

Here are a few shots of "zest".
Wow, Zest looks really nice, and very classy.

Infact, I would love to see that or a deeper gold version of it on the GT, with black stripes.

I'm sorry but that Zest colour does not fill my mind with happy thoughts.....

Will be interesting to see what Envi looks like in the flesh, I don't think too much of it either!
