The 2020 Shelby GT500 pictured here wears a special shade of Grabber Lime for Saint Patrick's Day.
Ford's new retro-inspired Grabber Lime is so bright that it should come with a pair of sunglasses. Ford cheekily calls it "more potent than krypton-ite". If you count yourself among this group, then get ready because Ford's 2020 Mustang is expected to go on sale this fall.

Ford says this eye-searing green is inspired by a similar color offered on Mustangs in the 1970s.
As anticipation builds for the release of the 2020 Shelby GT500, Ford exposed one of the model year's new colors just in time for St. Patrick's Day.
Ford color and materials manager Barb Whalen described it as "lime green on steroids". "This color traces back to a Mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy", she explains. In January, the first Shelby GT500 of this latest generation sold at a charity auction benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for $1.1 million, but it's not clear what color paint that first vehicle will sport.More news: Manchester City boss Guardiola 'sorry' for win against Swansea with no VAR
"These bright, vibrant retro colors are trending in design - in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances", said Whalen. Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic will be offered across the board on the 2020 Mustang.
Ford has a hybrid Mustang in the works, but you'll be able to buy a very green one before it arrives.More news: Facebook says it 'quickly' removed New Zealand shooter's video
