The colour version is a hand made tint, just like postcards of old. The give away is that the tinter got lazy towards the bottom of the picture as there is no colour saturation at all.

Someone will probably be sending in a claim for the resurrected V5 as we speak.....any Mk1 Mini associated with Prince Charles with photographic and video evidence must have significantly increased in value now he is our King. :lol:
