    Sadly, it appears those Ford supplied images may not represent the actual hue. The car in the flesh apparently looks different than the photos up above.

    Much different. I like the concept color much more.
    The actual color looks more like a Sublime Green.

    Looks more like booger green with a smattering of alien to me.

    I'll wait to see it in person before I pass judgement. Green hues can be polarizing. @Tob's reference to "bugger green with a smattering of alien" would be proof of that. LOL.

    Yup that looks like two completely different colors. The ford pics look like a heavy pearl based metallic and the green Tob posted looks more like a flat green.

    The metallic look to it looks to be gone. Looks almost pastel to my eye. If I were in Miami I'd be giddy. I'm not in Miami.

    It looks like the Ford photos were HDR.
    "High-dynamic-range photographs are generally achieved by capturing multiple standard-exposure images, often using exposure bracketing, and then later merging them into a single HDR image, usually within a photo manipulation program."

    They don't look like HDR images to me but rather Ford just adjusting the color to something somebody there approved of when in fact the actual car was a different color entirely.

    Is the Grabber Lime a metallic paint?
    Prolly not, right?

    Red Hot & Twister Orange are the only paints listed as metallic tinted clearcoat.

    On closer exam, they look like artist renderings.

    Something about those photos look a bit grey scaled to me, that would be quite the let down if they are accurate

    So instead of releasing the real color for St Patty’s day, they released a sexy color that would be more popular? And the real question, why not just use the sweet metallic green in the social media pics?
    I’ve been a big fan of GHIG since a buddy bought a Boss 302 in that color, and that Viper’s metallic green is the type that looks tough on a muscle car. That Lime deal, not so much.
    Oh well, green is a polarizing color anyway, I just think their take rate will be much lower with the ‘wrong’ green.

    I posted this in another thread. This is real Grabber Lime.

    40D91F41-8809-456C-82A1-F2F6642941D4.png

    Appears to match the photos posted, and not the Ford images.

    Seriously, do they have monkeys handling some of the release material for this car?
