Ford unleashes Grabber Lime for new Shelby ahead of St. Patrick's Day

Ford unveiled a new shade of green for its upcoming Shelby Mustang GT500 mid-March, just ahead of the St. Patrick's Day holiday.
The retro Grabber Lime throws back to a similar hue from the '70s, and is joined by another new feature colour, Twisted Orange.
Along with a new Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic, they signal the Shelby is all about going big and bold, though all four will be available for order on the Mustang GT350 and lower-trim pony cars, too.
'It's lime green on steroids,' said Barb Whalen, Ford colour and materials manager, in a release. 'This colour traces back to a Mustang heritage colour while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.'
The automaker admits it's jumping on a trend with the fun, youthful colours – sure, they're showing up in furniture and clothing design, but Toyota
just confirmed 90 per cent of the cars it sells are white, silver and black – but we're not complaining.
Ford also decided to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a video of Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifting his green 900-hp Mustang around a highway cloverleaf interchange.
We don't usually see automakers go this big for the holiday, but with these two news-bombs along, Ford's definitely owned it.
The 2020 Ford Mustang comes out in the fall.
