If you have, which color?
Carbon fiber track pack car or base?

Unfortunately, I have not seen one in person.
When one is somewhat close to me I will go look at it ASAP!

So far the performance blue and Iconic silver carbon fiber track pack cars are my favorite.

I've seen four now:
1,2, and 3 at NAIAS in Detroit. The floor model was Ford Performance Blue w/ CF Track Pack. Iconic Silver was up high, base model. I forget which specific red the car that came down from the the rafters was, but that one was a CF Track Pack too.
4 Over the weekend I was driving behind a base model, all black, with a manufacturer plate about a mile from my house (suburb of Detroit).

I'm not a big fan of the Ford Performance Blue. The car this weekend sounded great, but I did notice it shifted quickly under a low throttle acceleration (in third by 20 mph). It was very similar to the video of the early mule that came out over the winter. My guess is it was in full auto mode.

If I could order exactly what I wanted today it would be Kona blue, painted white stripes, CF Track Pack. If I could only get one of the two preferred options I'd drop the painted stripes and either get white vinyl stripes (like my '14) or switch the color to Twister Orange with a Black Roof.

How was this in person? Not usually a huge fan of bright pint; however, this combo, on this car, in photos, looks beautiful.

I have not seen one yet. But even in colors that I loathe, the car, and what IS known about it, was enough for me to put my ADM ( ;) ) deal in place. Iconic silver black roof, base+tech+recaro's for me

I think it matches it perfectly. The GT500 has so much black that it needs a loud/punchy color to contrast like Twister Orange (They should have called it Grabber Orange), Grabber Lime and Grabber Blue.

So far there is a Velocity Blue model here at the Mid America show. If it is like the GT350, they will make their track appearance at Hallet tomorrow.

I’ve seen all the Detroit show cars and a variety out and about in Metro Detroit: red, all the blues, silver, black, white, green...

To me, either trim looks good and really boils down to needs/use of the car.

As for color: Grabber Lime. It looks killer on the GT500 (it doesn’t work well on the GT350 though - must be the many black accent of the GT500).

The Ford Performance Blue is my second favorite. Just a pretty, classy color. Kona is nice; I don’t care for Velocity Blue.

Orange looks good, but I’ve not seen one myself.

Gonna keep the 3 R's? :blush:
I think so. I'm not aggressively trying to sell HR361, but it is for sale. I've had offers, but nobody wants to spend what I'm asking. For a perfect condition R with 4K miles, I think my price is fair (especially considering all the extras). I reduced the price if I keep the wheels and sell it with the 6GR's on it now, but I think its just a matter of people wanting it all for a song. I just got my first paycheck after a big promotion and quite frankly, I don't have to sell it, especially at a fire sale price. So, 3R's and a CF GT500 so it seems for now.
