The first pic is (from L to R):
Blood Orange Vixen, Venom and I gather Hot Chilli.

The 2nd pic (from L to R)
Venom, Vixen, Blood Orange

The 3rd pic (from L to R)

Vixen was available from October 03, replacing Venom.

Thanks for those shots Silverhawk. First time I have seen any sort of comparison between Venom and Vixen.

Looks pretty cool that Vixen.

IMO Venom is alot better than Vixen. Vixen and Blood Orange are too similar for my tastes and I believe the Ford line up needs a vivid & lucious red, and Venom was not too far off. Mind you I'm sure that I feel this way cause I can't stand orange!

What I've noticed is how hard it is to get a true perspective of the Ford reds & oranges in photos (especially digital) Mine looks bright red in some pics, & like a bloody fanta bottle in others! :be: Night time & flouro lighting also bring out a totally different look. :idk: Driving through brightly lit city streets & looking at reflection in windows really highlights this.

Yeah Charlie totally agree, there are some digital pics of Vixen that would have the Censorship Board jumping on this forum like a Raptor on a dove!

But 'In The Flesh' Vixen looks GOOD!!

Guys sorry I love Venom but Vixen now does looks the goods. It doenst really do justice the photos. I personally think its a more darker deeper red in the flesh we have one sitting in the driveway and it looks nothing like the pictures do nothin at all.

I agree, after seeing that colour in the flesh at the Sydney Motorshow, Vixen actually contains more crimson than Venom. I've had shots of my car taken and it looks blood orange!

I tossed up between the Venom and Vixen when buying mine. I thought the Vixen was a fantastic combination between Blood orange and Venom. The only main reason I went for venom was stock availability.

I find it's hard to get a good photo of what the orange on my car looks like. It often turns out either too dark & red or too pale but not often spot on.

Agree. Hopefully at the All Ford days at Albury and/or Geelong there can be a line-up so we can see the different colours in the flesh.
