Lotus Elan

Royal Scarlet / Claret

PostPost by: ericbushby » Mon Sep 19, 2022 4:42 pm

If I was having my Elan painted I think I would go for that Royal Scarlet colour which we have all seen such a lot of this week on the Queen`s 1950 Phantom IV. I think that colour is gorgeous.
What do you think.

I was in that very car a couple of weeks ago. One of some 19 made, the RR Phantom IV is very rare and they were only sold to Royalty.

Correction
That colour for the royal vehicles is Royal Claret not Royal Scarlet as I said at first.

That RR Regal red does it for me, but why is the intake stuffed full of old newspapers?.........D

Not newspaper just a clumsy attempt to eliminate the identity of this very valuable special addition one off seven, although I took the photo felt some responsibility toward the owner.
