For the 2008 model year all Shelby GTs were painted Vista Blue. Turns out those fun Ford dealers in California had a problem with that colors and wanted something a little more fun. So they got together and asked Ford and Shelby for a special version of the 2008 Shelby GT that would be unique California. Shelby Automobiles thought it was a good idea so they created a special run of around 215 Grabber Orange coupes (no convertibles). The cars got cool silvers stripes and were officially called the GT-C (though their side stripes still just read “Shelby GT”).
