You'd need to count the bristles on the bootboard for a definitive answer.

Although he claims the colour to be Tahiti Blue. Which it definitely isn't :?

It's possible it was built in Belgium of course. Not that it matters a toss.
Just happens that there is a Seneffe colour chart on the main site. looks like the same colours were used, with same trim options to British supplied cars.

Very much looks like Midnight Blue in this shot and not Black Tulip.


My guess is that the owner chose a colour that he liked and it could be a Tahiti Blue from another manufacturer.

Interestingly on the Historic Vehicle paperwork (on the owner's website) it looks to be Teal Blue in the photo. Also states that the car was fitted with a Newton Interior so you were right!
