(WXYZ) — Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Ford unveiled a lime green color option named Grabber Lime for the 2020 Mustang.

Grabber Lime was inspired by a vintage mustang color from the 1970s and "is sure to leave other muscle cars green with envy," the company said in a release.

“It’s lime green on steroids,” said Barb Whalen, Ford color and materials manager. “This color traces back to a Mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.”

It's one of two new feature colors available across the Mustang lineup for 2020 - the other is Twister Orange, in addition to Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic.

“These bright, vibrant retro colors are trending in design – in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances,” said Whalen. “Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colors that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be. And your car is an extension of that.

The new 2020 Ford Mustang arrives this fall.
