What a beau-T-ful GT500

Excuse me by double posting this here and the GT500 forum. Felt it should be shared here as well.

Saw this beautiful color combo today! I was shocked bc I hadn't seen one like it and it was just beautiful!!

Opinions on the color combo are welcome...

Awesome color! I want those stripes on my car. Still torn between white or black stripes.

That's an awesome color combo! I think when the time comes I'm putting black stripes on my car, I think the white are just too "in your face" when you look at the car.

I'd go black for red cars if I were you all. Especially for yours, 2013 GT 5.0, after seeing that Shelby today.

White stripes remind me of older and exotic cars. Just my .02.

My wife & kids picked black. My dad put it this way. He said, "If you want to get the attention of other performance based drivers or the Highway Patrol go with the white." I thought that was funny.

Haha pretty funny parents always know best. I'd agree though! Wife and kids have good taste! You doing it soon or what? I've been considering some ghosted stripes to offset the graphite on the Vossen's.

That is a really nice combo and base color. Actually I saw exactly same combo just few days ago: same red 2013 GT500 with black stripes. Car looked awesome! Usually I see only few new GT500s per year in my neighborhood so I was pretty lucky

I've always had a sentimental attachment to that base color. My pops used to have an '87 Buick T-Type in that same color. I KNOW that color and its the only other color I'd consider on a car. Great find. Kudos to the owner!

I wouldn't kick that out of my garage but I would take off the side stripes.

.02

Only a V6 but it is the fastest color.

I must say, that silver does no justice to that blood red/black combo! Although, I'd still drive either!! Haha
