While customers have a choice of eight standard exterior paint colors, top Ford executives such as Nair can pick whatever they want. After all, Nair is the one who came up with the idea for the reborn GT program. Nair’s GT was also the first one to roll off the production line for the 2018 model year. But that’s all in the past now. Nair is out. Something he did was inexcusable. Chances are he’s allowed to keep the GT, but his reputation is clearly damaged, perhaps permanently. Nair began his career at Ford 31 years ago and has held numerous other high-level positions, such as chief technology officer and head of global product development.
