This year, though, Ford is taking a subtler approach with its clover-inspired makeover. The 700-hp Shelby GT500 will be racing into dealerships this fall and will be offered in a variety of bright colors, including Twister Orange (shown below) and Red Hot Metallic.

Specifically, it's the vintage Mustangs of the 1970s which inspired this new Grabber Lime finish.

Ford unveiled a new shade of green for its upcoming Shelby Mustang GT500 mid-March, just ahead of the St. Patrick's Day holiday. "Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colors that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be". Ford cheekily calls it "more potent than krypton-ite". It's a play off the Grabber Lime offered for the 1971 Mustang, but updated with "modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy", according to Ford. Ford says the 2020 Mustang won't go on sale until this fall.

"These bright, vibrant retro colors are trending in design - in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances", Whalen added.

Along with a new Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic, they signal the Shelby is all about going big and bold, though all four will be available for order on the Mustang GT350 and lower-trim pony cars, too.

Ford has a hybrid Mustang in the works, but you'll be able to buy a very green one before it arrives.
