    In that case.....the White with the blue stripes would be my first choice

    I thought it was the GT-R orange? Isn't the new pic of the GT supercar Valencia with tungsten stripes?

    Here are current 06 colors (with codes):

    Colorado Red Clearcoat D3/M7042
    Screaming Yellow Clearcoat D6/M7109
    Redfire Pearl Metallic Clearcoat G2/M7089
    Vista Blue Metallic Clearcoat G9/M7147A
    High Performance White Clearcoat HP
    Lime Gold Metallic Clearcoat P1
    Windveil Blue Metallic Clearcoat P3
    Tungsten Gray Metallic Clearcoat T8/M7145A
    Satin Silver Pearl Metallic Clearcoat TL/M7049
    Black Ebony Clearcoal UA/M6373/M6877


    Here are the colors for the Shelby from Media Guide

    Torch Red
    Vista Blue
    Performance White
    Tungsten Grey
    Ebony (has to be Black Ebony Charcoal)
    Valencia Yellow
    Alloy


    Assuming that Ford didn't mix up new paints, I would then guess that the following may be new names for some existing colors. (It is possible that Ford MIGHT have tweaked the paint mix though).

    Valencia Yellow - could be Screaming Yellow
    Alloy - could be Satin Silver


    06 Colors not included

    Redfire Pearl Metallic Clearcoat
    Lime Gold Metallic Clearcoat
    Windveil Blue Metallic Clearcoat

    I think - based on a recent car magazine article I read - that Valencia (yellow) is more of an orange color than Screaming Yellow is. Screaming Yellow is not the same as Valencia Yellow. Here is the picture of the Ford GTX1 concept in Valencia Yellow.

    Here's are some early production photos I found: They look more like screaming yellow.....but you could very well be correct. I'm only guessing.

    NOTICE that the Shelby medallion is a Pony and and the rear strakes are missing, but it has the right hood and exhaust tips....

    I was pretty sure that Valencia was an orangy yellow, like the GTR (think of a not fully ripened orange). Additionally, Alloy is not Satin. I don't know what it is, but I know that it's not satin silver. Does anyone have any flipping idea what color Alloy is??? :shrug:

    Valencia is the color on the picture GTX1.

    Bet the GT500 will look hot in it, but holy shit does white w/ blue stripes look unbelievable. :eek:
