Lotus Elan

Pedro Fins' Elan Paint colour?

PostPost by: 661 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 8:40 pm

I'm having an about turn on the colour scheme for the car.
Out with the BRG/Yellow strip and in with blues.
Porsche Riviera blue is looking good, but I'd be interested to discover Pedro Fin's Elan's Colour code.
Any pointers?

That looks more like Medici Blue in that photo.

French Blue and Wedgewood Blue are lighter hues.

Being a race car its highly probable that the colour is a modern one, possibly from a completely different car firm.

Thanks Tim.
I think I'll try the race team direct.

That definitely looks to be "Turquoise"y... not an original colo(u)r... I like it :-)

I tend to agree.
It looks like a tad of Riviera blue added to the Medici Blue.


I can't find the details of the team that used to prepare his cars so have emailed Club Lotus Portugal.
