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.
