Lava Red Metallic 2012 Mustang

New for the 2012 Mustang is the Lava Red Metallic color choice, and let me tell you, it is an excellent addition to the Mustang family. Looking like it’s a mix of maroon and black, this option appears to change color depending on the angle you’re looking from and it has become my personal favorite color choice.

Using Ford’s configurator for the 2012 Mustang gives an idea of what was available for the Lava Red Metallic paint scheme and, at least for the time being, we may have to wait a bit longer to be sure, but it seems it isn’t available with the California Special Package and a few of the wheel choices, but the resulting Mustang I came up with was absolutely amazing. Warning, the configurator is still a bit on the glitchy side, but it is still navigated easily enough.

Take a look at the gallery below and try building your own Mustang on Ford’s site and take a look for yourself. What are your thoughts of the new color choice?

    Wow, this new color is pretty sharp! I’m generally not a fan of red cars, but I have to say, Ford found a red I would like! It looks really great on the Mustang, too. Definitely gives it a kind of retro vibe that seems to really be popular with cars now. Good move, Ford!

    This color is awesome, saw it first at a car show and had to go look it up. I think I’ll be repainting my black 93 gt lava red very soon!
