Default Q: How many XP's built in each color?

Hey everyone! I dont know if this has been brought up before and I tried looking around for info on this but does anyone know how many XP8/XP6s were built in each color? For example: How many reds? blues? blacks? whites? ect. I understand they can be built in any color that Ford had in 98-00. Most of them were white, black and blue and everything else I assume is limited with the remaining colors. If anyone has info about this, can you please post below? Thanks!

Gold?
Chestnut? (I believe only 1 was made)
Bright Red?
Toreador Red?
Medium Wedgewood Blue?
Deep Wedgewood Blue?
Tropic Green?
Medium Platinum?
Black?
Oxford White?

Interesting. I always heard that none were supercharged from Saleen, but rather had the blowers shipped in the truck to be installed by the dealership.

That is some great information, thank you for posting that for us! So it looks like there were no Gold or Deep Wedgewood Blue XPs but all other colors were used.

I just realized something....it says there are 2 green XP8s. The Saleen Vehicle Letter of Authenticity says it is a 1 of 1. If there are 2, what number is the other one?

What number truck states 1 of 1. The green trucks are 99-0015 and 99-0037. I thought they were Tropic but I guess not.

#15 says 1 of 1 in Tropic Green. Maybe Saleen wasn't aware of #37 in their records or maybe that one has a different color?

So you have #15 now?

The difference could be the options. #37 is for sale currently and appears to not have any options, but I'm not in front of it or my book at the moment.

Thats correct, I have #15 with the tan interior. No options such as hood, SC or recaros.

If memory serves me correctly your truck has the Magnesium wheels and truck number 37 has the LeMans Wheels. This would make each truck a 1 of 1.

Didn't at least one of the prototypes have a blower installed? If so I'd guess it was Saleen

Is there a list that shows what number is what color? Like what is number of the White 1998 with parchment interior?

No, not really. Saleen may have records on them but I can assure you they are not very accurate.
