Basic Looker

Going for a basic look isn’t always bad. Sometimes, it can be your go-to to stand out. This is proven by the Ford Mustang with the following color options: Oxford White, Iconic Silver Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Shadow Black.

Both the Oxford White and Iconic Silver Metallic are on the lighter side as compared to Carbonized Gray Metallic and Shadow Black. Considering that most trims and accents on the exterior of the coupe are blacked-out instead of chrome, the two light color options will help contrast those design elements.

Meanwhile, the Ford Mustang in either Carbonized Gray Metallic or Shadow Black might blend with the blacked-out accents on the exterior, creating a single tone appearance. If you dig an all-black or dark theme, then this could be your go-to finish for your American sports car.

Dazzling Fashion

The Ford Mustang might be a track-ready vehicle, but it can also be a weekend car simply by choosing brighter paint finishes. These color options include Grabber Yellow, Twister Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Velocity Blue Metallic, and Antimatter Blue Metallic.

Another unique color that you can go for if you want to drive a stylish Mustang is the Twister Orange Metallic Tri-Coat.

Besides, it is a Ford Mustang so people will love it despite the chosen color.

The only thing that you need to keep in mind is that mud, dust, or any kind of dirty can instantly take away the distinctive characteristics of these four paint finishes. There is truly a lot of work to do in keeping a pretty face. As such, we recommend that you regularly wash your car to retain the bright colors. Plus, doing just that on a regular basis can help avoid unwanted scratches.

Race Day Mustang

The thing about Mustangs is that they don’t need sporty color schemes like red to look fast. It is a very recognizable sports car where you don’t need to do a lot of aftermarket jobs just to achieve a fast-looking coupe. But if you still wish to sport a red finish, you have two options on the list which include the Race Red Metallic and Rapid Red Metallic.

Right off the bat, you can notice that the Race Red Metallic is the lighter option than the Rapid Red Metallic. Both are metallic so these will stand out whenever there is direct sunlight as the metallic flakes will be visible. If you prefer a red that is bolder and more aggressive-looking, then maybe the Rapid Red Metallic is for you. But if you fancy a brighter red, then the Race Red Metallic should be your choice.

Even the first-generation Mustangs were fond of being painted in red so you can never go wrong in these two colors. Plus, the impressive performance capabilities of this American sports car will be further emphasized using either the Race Red Metallic or Rapid Red Metallic.

Red is an ideal color if you are eyeing to get the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 which is priced at Php 7,760,000. Since it is the fastest trim with its 5.2-liter V78 engine, going for a color associated with speed like red is a good choice. It also comes with red-painted Brembo brakes so the two can complement each other.

Ford Philippines is offering the Ford Mustang with a starting price of Php 2,948,000 for the EcoBoost 2.3 Premium AT. If you wish for a more powerful Mustang, then you can get the GT 5.0 Premium which is priced at Php 3,538,000 (Php 3,718,000 for the convertible).
