Photo of the day: a Lamborghini-orange Ford GT
One owner's bypassed the Ford configurator to make a one-off GT. Like it?
Head to the Ford GT configurator and you can lose hours matching up different combinations of wheels, stripes and body colours. But there are actually just eight base hues to choose from with yellow and red the wildest. You can have ‘Competition Orange’ stripes, but good luck finding a body colour they won’t look a bit gratuitous upon.
That simply wasn’t good enough for one owner. Via a special order at the factory he’s managed to get his brand new, half-a-million-quid Ford GT in orange. Not just any orange, but Arancio Borealis, which resides on Lamborghini’s colour palette.
Andy Frisella, the lucky buyer in question, is fairly gushing in his praise of Ford for making it happen.
“This is one of the very first customer cars delivered and the first off-palette spec produced by Ford,” he says on Facebook. “It is & will be one of one, and I can honestly say it’s the sickest car I’ve ever seen in my life... ever.” Sick, for our older readers, is now a good thing.
Do you agree, though? Or would you stick to Ford’s own selection and go for a more classic GT colour scheme? Let us know below…
