Someone just sent me a picture of the 2017 Mustangs in Grabber Blue and Lightning Blue on the road (and very dirty). He also said the pictures of course don't do it justice and that the Lightning Blue is a really cool color in person:

im fairly certain these are the first images of the new colours straight from ford.

The message along with the photos:
"The first images are out now of the 3 new colours for the MY17 Mustang - Grabber Blue, Lightning Blue and White Platinum Metallic tinted tri coat. If you use the Ford configurator and choose the discontinued colours you will see them appear.
NOTE - These are not available for order yet, but it is strongly suggested these replace the discontinued colours of Competition Orange, Deep Impact Blue and Guard."

first three are the grabber blue
second three are the lightning blue
final three are the white platinum

i have a magnetic on order, tried to change to orange but was too late - perhaps a change to lightning blue is on the cards..

  • Grabber Blue

Grabber blue is the only color I would have considered if it were available for my 2015.

Hopefully it will be a GT350 color as well.

Also wondering what Lightning Blue will be.

I just dont know how well grabber blue will translate to the new body lines honestly. I can't picture it.

Im shocked they removed orange. That was a popular S550 color. Same with Guard green.

I would guess lightning blue is some dark blue color replacing DIB.

Grabber Blue? Yuck.

It looks like the lightning blue is slightly lighter than DIB based on pics of the 2017 Fusion in that color.

Agree. Probably this blue non-metallic. It's also not designated as metallic anymore on the OP chart like DIB was

Grabber Blue- someone has already done a custom paint on a 15. Pics should
Be findable . The color WORKS on this body style.

Now for the rumor mill to open up about a 2018 Bullitt. Guard is gone, makes sense if the Bullitt returns to drop a green shade for a year.

It'll look superb. However, just as on the S197, it needs a fair amount of black to tone it down. Me, I'd have it with a black roof, mirrors, hood vents and wheels :headbang:

The metallic white is going to look amazing on the s550.
