According to initial consumer data Red and Black clinch the top spots as the most popular exterior paint colors for the first global Mustang.

Mustang demand has been high, with the car reaching dealer lots in the United States late last year and China in early 2015. It’s set to go on sale in Europe midyear, with nearly 1.1 million pony cars configured on Ford’s European websites just a month after ordering banks opened.

Passion for the car is universal, but trends are beginning to surface based on customer data that provide an early glimpse into regional similarities and differences among Mustang enthusiasts worldwide.

In China and Europe, Race Red clinches the top spot for exterior paint color choice, with Absolute Black in a tie for first in Europe, according to configurator data. Nearly 35 percent of Mustang orders in China are for Race Red, while black is the No. 1 color in the United States.

Some regional highlights to note:

With white the top color choice in the United States overall, Mustang bucks the trend; black remains the top Mustang color, followed by Magnetic Metallic and Ruby Red

    Just as I predicted… FORD comes out with a totally new Mustang and they offer the worst color choices possible and these charts prove that fact. The Orange and Yellow are butt ugly and better suited for a Boss 302 or Mach 1 and that Green whatever Ford is calling it is just plain Fugly and you have to have some big balls to order the car with it. The 2 most popular Green colors of all time on the Mustang are Highland Green and Legend Lime and would look great on this car. The new Mustang would look great in Gulfstream Aqua especially if you live in the ocean states. You don’t need to be an MIT graduate to figure this out but for sure FORD needs someone else choosing colors.

    Would have liked to see highland green but you never know we might see a Bullitt edition soon enough. Expect more colors in 2016 and 2017.
