So the three "premium" colors: Rapid Red, Star White, and Infinite Blue have different descriptions of what they are: red and blue are metallic tinted clearcoat and the white is metallic tri-coat. Can anyone tell me the difference between the two as well as the "standard" paint?
I'm no expert, but I believe metallic has metallic flakes in it. The tri-coat is a three-layered process that gives the paint more depth.

Looks good but pretty much meaningless until seen in normal lighting. I’d love if it were actually that blue but I doubt it.

It looks awesome. No regrets that I chose for this color! Where do the pictures come from, which location?

These are from the Kansas City auto show. Hope someone on here is going and can add more photos.

It could be the lighting but it looks a lighter shade of blue than I thought. There’s a fair bit of difference between the body colour and then black wheel trim. Much more than on the Ford website where you got to choose the colour.

If you check the video on Youtube you can find in the question department the answer.
This colour is the carbonized grey. I think it's due to the special lightning that it looks a kind of blue.

Good spot. So is the first pic also incorrect?
In any case the same autoshow. Ik have not seen an infinite blue in one of the hand build models up till now.
