Take the GT, paint it lime green, then put flame and bullet hole decals all over it, along with a massive red R on the hood.

You'll make peoples heads explode.

My serious advice, however, would be stay with your PJ and Shelby. They're very nice cars- I like them better than the GT- and honestly, nobody needs a supercar. One wreck and you'd be screwed. Hell, if it were me, I'd just get the PJ, paint it black, and put the rest of the money in the bank.

Rest Assured the car would not suffer through ANY mods. Least of which would be a color change ! Good Lord The only thing I'd change (that I could afford to anyway) would be the oil , oil filter & other such service doo dahs.

As for color ....geesh pumpdoc , that was Harsh (but honest) on the Tungsten .

You can probably tell, I'm really trying to have this color win me over....in fact .. how the marketing guru's @ ford sell it : ( so let's hear a little Tungsten GT Love !!

Tungsten Silver highlights Ford GT design details:




To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Ford's first win at Le Mans, the 2006 Ford GT will be offered in a limited-edition Tungsten Silver, which replaces Quick Silver on the Ford GT's color palette. A Quick Silver racing stripe can be added to the Tungsten Silver package.



Tungsten Silver was developed for the 2004 North American International Auto Show Ford "Performance Trilogy" show cars - the Ford GT, the Shelby Cobra roadster concept and the new 2005 Mustang GT. Customer demand was so overwhelming that the color was added to the production palette.

"There's good contrast between the colors," says Camilo Pardo, chief designer of the Ford GT. "But it's a discreet contrast. In Tungsten Silver, the Ford GT is really dressy, like a fine suit. It looks mature.

"This dark silver color also brings out all the design features and the subtleties of the car," he adds. "In fact, people who've seen it thought we'd added a feature line around the side of the car. It's always been there, but you may not notice it in the car's other colors. The Tungsten Silver really brings it out."

Pardo notes that in the design studio, clay models are covered with "Dynoc" material that is a similar hue to Tungsten silver. The color is specifically designed to enhance the vehicle design details for evaluation.


"We use silver to evaluate our designs throughout the whole process," he says. "It brings out the subtleties, the returns and the negatives, the differences between horizontal and vertical surfaces."




White GT500 Vert / Blue Stripes- I'm waiting.....

Harsh, harsh? painting a car with this kind of history Tungsten is harsh. You never see this car in a Ford sponsored display in that color, the last 2 TPC's Ford sponsored Golf tourneys had GT's on display for the word to see and they weren't tungsten.......................

grey supercar ?

Firstly I love the tungsten / quicksilver combo on the Mustang as you can see from my gallery ! However, I have seen a tungsten / quicksilver GT40 in the Legacy Ford dealership when I collected my car last December. Whilst it looked quite smart, I'm not sure if it really suited this style of car and the red one they had in the showroom 2 month prior definately looked better. Maybe if the interior had been red (like the Mustang option) it would have looked better, but it was black and a bit dull. Actually Ford's comments about the GT40 being 'dressed in the suit' is probably true - but there lays the problem - most poeple dont want a GT40 in a fine suit !

Its a great colour for 'normal' cars, but a mid-engined, 2 seater 'supercar' in metallic grey, something not quite right here.

My only advice would be to try to see the car in the flesh then you will be better positioned to make a decision, if colour is you main concern.

06 GT Tungsten with quicksilver stripes, Prem with red interior, FSAB, stickshift. Lightning Performance 62mm TB, WMS CAI with Ram Air box, Kooks Long Tube headers, X-pipe and Magnaflow back system. Diablo Predator tuner. Tokico D-spec adjustable shocks, Eibach Sportline springs, BMR adj panhard. Stern ST-1 Beast 20" x 8.5" & 9.5" staggered wheels in Hyperblack with Nitto 555s, 255/35 & 275/35. 12" Phat antenna.
