It was most famous for the Boss, Mach, and Cobra models.

Twister Orange | 2020-21 Mustang

To shake things up for the 2020 Mustang, Ford has introduced a new Mustang orange paint named Twister Orange. Twister Orange is another GT500 color that is rumored to carry over to standard Mustangs. From what we can tell, it seems to be a bit deeper than Competition Orange, which contrasts perfectly with all of the black accent pieces on the S550.
