The top one has blue lettering/edging instead of the std chrome.

This this a custom or from a specific model/year?

One of those is mine :D and it?s not the one with the pistachio background.
One is from a genuine Sprint, the other an original Supersprint.

Here you go Simon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIM_2e4CBVs

The top green snap is of Phil's Sprint, from a set of semi-professional piccies taken a couple of years ago when the car came onto the market in Canada. The red Sprint is Mick G's, taken the other day when we had a drive-out.

The differences I had spotted were the A and B lettering treatment. The different sized O of Lotus is, as Greg pointed out, quite noticeable.
