Code Orange Paint Sample
When I first saw this color online, my initial thought was it would be very similar to Competition Orange. The person that made these paint samples says it looks very Race Red’ish in person.
Grabber Blue Paint Sample
This isn’t the Grabber Blue that we remember on the early S550. The color sample below shows some metallic flake which is similar to the Grabber Blue that is offered on the current Mach-E. If you remember Nitrous Blue on the Focus RS, I think this is very similar.
Rapid Red Metallic, Oxford White, Shadow Black, Race Red and Carbonized Gray are carrying over from 2021 GT500 color options to 2022 GT500 color options. Eruption Green, Code Orange, Grabber Blue, Atlas Blue, Dark Matter Gray, Oil Slick Blue and Cyber Orange Metallic are new exterior color options for ’22 Shelby GT500.
Grabber Blue is making an appearance on the Shelby GT500. The last time it was available was back in 2017. Code Orange seems to be pretty similar to Competition Orange. Oil Slick Blue-Purple is very interesting, could it be something similar to Mystichrome that was available on the SVT Cobra?
Cyber Orange Metallic made its debut on the Mustang Mach E GT and now it’s available on GT500 as well. Another noteworthy color is Eruption Green. It’s not as dark as Dark Highland Green that was available on the Bullitt but looks slightly darker than Electric Green that was available on the 99-04 New Edge Mustangs.
