the grabber lime color is one of two new feature palettes available for the 2020 ford mustang shelby GT500; twister orange is the other. with a metallic finish that causes the shade to change depending on sunlight, the high-impact green has been said to look more potent than kryptonite. however, it is actually influenced by a vintage colors from mustangs in the 1970s.

 

 

it is lime green on steroids,said barb whalen, ford color and materials manager. ‘this color traces back to a mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.

 

 

racing from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, the aesthetics of the 2020 ford mustang shelby GT500 match its performance. large angular, double front grille openings and a muscular hood greets onlookers whilst the car ends with a new standard rear spoiler. now with its new colors, the model is expected to arrive in september 2019.
