As I’ve stated many times, the Ford GT’s design is dramatic, making it capable of looking great in just about any color. With that said, I’ve decided Liquid Red is the Ford GT’s most dramatic color. If you go on the Ford GT Configurator you can see the car in all eight factory-offered colors. And not surprisingly, the Ford GT looks dramatic in every one of those colors — on the configurator.
But I’ve seen multiple Ford GT’s in every factory color, and several non-factory colors, in person over the past 3 years. I can now say with full confidence that Liquid Red translates from the configurator to real life better than any other standard color. There’s a “shimmer” in the paint that almost doesn’t seem real.
I’ve already locked my new Ford GT order, and I never seriously considered Liquid Red for one major reason. While I generally love red on a car I never liked the idea of having it on a Ford GT (old or new). My reason is simple: red has such a strong association with Ferrari, and in my mind the Ford GT is the anti-Ferrari. Painting one red seems wrong to me.
That said, every time I see a new Ford GT in Liquid Red I’m struck by how good it looks. I’m still happy with my Ford GT configuration, but I’d be lying if I said this color wasn’t causing second thoughts…
