Four combos that’ll knock your socks off

In case you were unaware, Ford’s 600-horsepower supercar is available for digital dress up right here, giving would-be owners and Blue Oval fanboys a crack at crafting the perfect look for the mid-engine all-‘Merican hero. Of course, perfection is a fickle thing, so I spent my morning coming up with four unique combinations that’ll appeal to a broad range of tastes and likes. I even gave the combinations their own names. Say hello to the Historic, the Stealth Bomber, the Attention Grabber, and the Daytona.

Picking a personal favorite from the bunch isn’t easy, but if it were my $400,000, I’d probably go with the Daytona (I kinda have a thing for blue cars). But that’s just me – we wanna know which configuration you’d take. Did we nail it, or miss the mark here? Tell us in the comments, and don’t to forget to screenshot your own combo and post it for the world to see!

Ford beat me to the punch on this one, recently announcing its intentions to produce a special limited-run GT called the ’66 Heritage Edition. The idea is pretty straightforward – recreate the livery used on the original No. 2 GT40 that topped the podium at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

But here’s the thing: the ’66 Heritage Edition will almost certainly come with a hefty premium price, and with a little tweaking, you can get pretty much the same result on the standard model, minus the extra outlay.

There are a few pieces missing, of course – the giant “2” for starters, not to mention the gold satin finish for the wheels. Still, you gotta admit it looks pretty damn good.

Exterior Color: Shadow Black
Stripes: Ingot Silver
Front, Rear And Side Lowers Finish: Shadow Black
Wheels: 20-inch One-Piece Forged-Aluminum Silver with Chrome Lug Nuts
Brake Calipers: Silver
Interior: Re-Entry

Last year, a prototype Ford GT was spotted on the road wearing a primer grey paint job, and it was good. Very good. So good, in fact, the Blue Oval decided to offer Matte Black as a factory paint option.

Three words – thank you Ford!

If you’re looking to go full-on ninja style with a side of Batmobile, this is the combo for you. It’s the sort of look that should come with a Steve McQueen-style manual override switch in the cabin to turn off the taillights. Leave the gloss at home, but definitely inquire about installing some hidden machine gun turrets.

Exterior Color: Matte Black
Stripes: No Stripe
Front, Rear And Side Lowers Finish: Matte Carbon Fiber
Wheels: 20-inch Carbon-Fiber Matte Finish with Black Lug Nuts
Brake Calipers: Black
Interior: Dark Energy

You gotta be pretty brave for this one. Like “I just launched the new Google and I want everyone to know I made $100 million overnight” brave. This screamer takes all the brightest colors in the GT palette and mixes them into something that, incredibly, actually works. It’s also the only combo that manages to complement the orange Launch Control interior.

Exterior Color: Triple Yellow
Stripes: Competition Orange
Front, Rear And Side Lowers Finish: Gloss Carbon Fiber
Wheels: 20-inch One-Piece Forged-Aluminum Gloss Black with Black Lug Nuts
Brake Calipers: Orange
Interior: Launch Control

I love this color combo. Not only does it give a nod to the GT40’s GT Class compatriot, the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, it’s just downright sexy. It’s like an ocean of go-faster blue, extending all the way down to the calipers and into the interior. In a word – stunning!

Exterior Color: Liquid Blue
Stripes: Frozen White
Front, Rear And Side Lowers Finish: Matte Carbon Fiber
Wheels: 20-inch One-Piece Forged-Aluminum Graphite with Black Lug Nuts
Brake Calipers: Blue
Interior: Light Speed
