The studio shots make Grabber Blue look better tham Lightning (IMHO), but the daylight ones change that.

Gotta see them in UK daylight...

Lightning is gorgeous! Deffo would have got that had I the choice... (And not wrapped), however not cancelling now i'm on a boat.


Is lightning 'The' Gt350 colour they used for the reveal, looks to be so?

That lightning needs silver or anthracite wheels to set it off.

It's similar, but that reveal colour (also used on the GT supercar and F150 Raptor show cars) was called Liquid Blue. It was a multi-stage paint process that couldn't be justified for production.....sadly. But Lightning Blue certainly looks close!

Lightening blue is soooo different on the ford uk configurator compared to the spy shots above. Ford website makes it look very green. The spy shots look lovely. Which one is accurate?!

The spyshots are the accurate ones.

Ford's configurator has never been great at getting the colours spot on. Hopefully we'll get some more spyshots of clean cars, which will help more :)

I'm well confused. Rang my dealer yesterday, car is presently in Zeebrugge for undersealing. He asked if I was aware of the possibility of a different colour being delivered. I ordered DIB and he says the paperwork from Ford regarding the car stated deep impact blue or lightning blue. Can't see it being LB for a 2016 car but why does that even get mentioned on the paperwork !!!

On the paperwork because LB replaces DIB. Yours will be DIB. Unless, maybe they sent you a GT350 by mistake. You wish. :)
