According to Ford, it should be the same color that is currently used on the 2012 Mustang. It is called Red Candy Tint (RZ). You should verify with your dealer though.... The black that I ordered is the same as the Mustang Black (UA).

Looks like I am incorrect. The RZ will not be introduced on the Mustang until October:

Ya, I will have to talk to them. Honestly if I have to get red I would prefer the red candy (darker) to the race red as it looks a touch less "girly".

I wanted the race red, but when I got to the dealership the red was sold. All there was left was oxford white and I needed the car that day. White works!

I read somewhere that Ford may be re-introducing the original colors in the fourth quarter as Merck KGaA is now back in full production of the pigment. So hopefully that makes my ebony black (UA) Ti rare! . I may have to keep my build sheet and window sticker to prove I did not paint it. . When I find that article from Ford I will post it.

What I Drive: 2012 Tuxedo Black Titanium Hatch

I initially wanted tuxedo black or kona blue just by judging off the Ford website, leaning mainly toward kona blue. I didn't like the kona blue nearly as much in person but loved the tuxedo black. As everyone knows, though, it got discontinued for new orders. After a nationwide search for the exact car that I wanted with the options I wanted and no others, I found one a couple states a way. I flew to California two days ago and drove my tuxedo black Focus Titanium hatchback with MFT/nav, winter package, handling package back to Washington. It was entirely worth it. I didn't really like any of the other colors.

To summarize, my vote would be for tuxedo black above all others. I can't vote, though. :)

You are a lucky man. I wanted tuxedo black Ti with tuscanny, 401a, Parking package, winter package, sport package, nav, moonroof, and exterior protection package. It does not exist in the USA, so I had to order, then I found out tuxedo black is no longer available. I almost said heck with it and ordered a golf tdi with bi-xenons. I just could not forget how fun it was drive compared to the VW. Yes the torque was great but for the price of diesel I could not justify the cost and the 1% failure or TDI engines in the US due to impurities in the diesel fuel.

There were only three in the USA like I wanted, one of which was only about 30 miles from me when I started searching. I called them up and found out that it never touched the lot. Someone saw it on a truck and literally followed the truck to the dealership to buy it. There was the one that I bought in California and another in Indiana or something. I was just going to order until I found out that tuxedo black wasn't available, which got me going on the nationwide search. :)

Can't vote yet but put me down for Sterling Grey ! Not my first choice...that was the White Platinum but I did not want to order and the Sterling Grey was on a truck to the dealer so I bought it before it arrived.
