Nitrous Blue First Pics

Apparently these are the first photos of the production-spec Nitrous Blue color, as displayed on the Geneva show stand.

New wheel design too!

"Five striking exterior colours include Nitrous Blue, a vibrant four-coat metallic finish exclusive to the RS, as well as Stealth Grey, Shadow Black, Magnetic Grey and Frozen White. The car displayed in Geneva features the same special Liquid Blue colour scheme first seen on the all-new Ford GT revealed in January at the North American International Auto Show."

This was released wit the first batch of pictures, its one of the RS design sketches, I think this is closer to Nitrous Blue...



Or when they say Nitrous blue do they legitimately mean NOS bottle blue?

For me it's going to be blue or white, white in this rendering just looks amazing...

Is this the same color that we have been seeing on the Focus RS for the past while, or is it a different shade of blue?

What?! Why won't these seats be available in North America? That's shitty.. Can you not get it special ordered through a dealership from the factory??

Source? I haven't been able to substantiate this from any source including Ford press releases. Plus the Mustang gets identical seats so I'm having trouble understanding even the logic behind the decision (if there was one)

In the press release issued today.

Signature RS Recaro shell seats, with authentic motorsport microfibre fabric panels, are an option for customers in Europe and Asia.
The reason is because they do not meet the side-airbag specifications required by U.S. regulations. And if they don't pass U.S. regulations, they aren't sold in Canada either. My understanding is that the Canadian regulations are very similar to the US. So North America is out.
