Ford GT Gets Lamborghini’s Verde Mantis Paint

A 2017 Ford GT has just rolled out of the car’s production facility in Canada painted in Verde Mantis, a color lifted straight out of Lamborghini’s palette.

Since production of the new Ford GT commenced, we’ve seen a number of examples painted in a variety of colors, including Porsche’s stunning Riviera Blue, but this example certainly takes the cake in terms of downright insanity.

Verde Mantis looks stunning on the Lamborghini Huracan but we’re not so sure about it on the Ford GT. Unlike the Lamborghini which seems to perfectly lend itself to the bright green, the design of the GT simply doesn’t work with such an in-your-face color, at least to our eyes.

What do you think of the color? Do you love it or hate it?


Ready to roll! #fordgt #gt #ford #woodhouseautofamily

    It doesn’t look bad to me ,but this car’s design already gets attention. I wouldn’t want more with that color….

  • SteersUright

    Beautiful but too bare, needs decals or other details in this color to help break it up a little.

    • Skydis

      Classic Ford GT stripes would work well here

    Absolutely hideous and a complete dishonor to the heritage of the car in my opinion.

  • fabri99

    Looks very very nice, but I’d like a livery to go with.

  • Wrong Color, Wrong Car

    Uhhhhhh…this didn’t work at all.

  • LJ

    The Ford GT is in a different class than any Lamborghini, and shouldn’t stoop to dressing in any of their trash colors.

  • Rocket

    I like it. It wouldn’t be my first choice, but I don’t really have to worry about that.
