Color-Shifting Ford GT Has A Mustang SVT Cobra-Inspired Paint That Costs $100k!

This 2020 Ford GT is painted in a color dubbed Mystichrome and it might just be the most eye-catching of its kind on earth.

The car is owned by tech entrepreneur Justin Choi and was recently featured on an episode of Donut Media’s Bumper 2 Bumper. A number of different Ford GTs out there have unique paint jobs, but this one takes things to the next level.

Dearborn first introduced the Mystichrome on the 1996 Mustang SVT Cobra. The paint seems to shift its appearance depending on the angle at which it is viewed, giving off hues of blue, green, violet, magenta, gold, and even brown. The color got its name from chrome exhaust headers which change color to purple, blue and green over time after getting hot.

The lucky few applications given the go-ahead to actually purchase the latest-generation GT had many standard colors to choose from, but could also order custom shades. This particular example went for Mystichrome, which cost him a whopping $100,000 on top of the car’s starting price. On the other hand, it is the only one sporting this paint job, and Ford says it won’t build another.

Adding to its desirability is that it features a Heffner titanium exhaust system that comes from the GT Mk2 track special. So, not only does this GT look spectacular, but it also sounds pretty special as well.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t watch the video. I just can’t listen to a man wearing sneakers with no socks on.

      Yep, he has a wierd face as well.
      10seconds were enough. 😬

    • Jay

      I remember seeing a 93 dodge shadow this very color. Would never pay that to share paint with that lol

      You know that no show socks are a thing right?

      You can clearly see he’s wearing no show socks if you pause at 6:07 and zoom in.

  • SO YOU PULL UP NEXT TO A ’96 MUSTANG AND BRAG THAT YOU SPENT $100K FOR THE SAME PAINT. BRILLIANT.

    • SteersUright

      LMAO, exactly. Though it does look a little bit better on the GT. I thought it looked horrible on those older Mustangs. Most of the time it just looks turquoise or this ugly, light shade of metallic purple.

    I rarely comment on the guys in the videos but this guy has something in him a mix of unpleasantness and fakeness that make it hard to follow the video. Those faked peaks of enthusiasm are problematic, too.

    Forgot the car. 100k mark up for a paint is not only unreasonable. It also means that Ford has chewed part of your future markup on the resale of an exclusive car in advance. Should that paint be damaged, your investment is gone. Even if repainted to standard.

    Frankly, There is nothing impressive about a fancy color. Yes its cool and all. And no doubt the car is impressive. but spending a $100K on a paint job is plain stupid imo.

    • Ayase

      Wont be stupid if he ever decides to sell it in future & it’s worth significantly more than any other Ford GT being sold.

  • SteersUright

    Couldn’t make it 2 min into the video with this douschebag presenter.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    You may not know. However, it was a thing in parts of Italy in the 1980s/1990s. Several guys had their cars repainted in those colour on colour tones with addition of reflective particles. This was done on hot hatches often
    There is no reason what-so-ever justifying that price tag.
    Damages are fixable. The originality of the car once the original is redone is not. It’s called “original” for a reason.

    So, i love the car and the color. No, the price for the paint is not justified. Ford is showing a good amount of greed. I understand the buyer. I’d have spent those 100ks in other things.

  • Smith

    That’s ridiculous, the paint costs twice as much as the car! What a waste.

  • blabberbobber

    Having been around plenty of people like this, they’re just annoying in general.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    The ruin the sector. These used to be done by professionals with skills and experience. Now we have vaping hipsters encroaching in fields like this in an attempt to make easy bucks. They are a disgrace.
