What Colour?

Gday

just wondering if any one has a copy of an EF brochure, I am after the name of the burgandy colour. the reason why i asked is that a couple of months ago i was going to spray the car 'Wizard Blue' which is a really deep dark blue and none of the spraypainters won't to touch it because it was just to hard, they just get a respray, dishearten i put it off until a couple of days ago i passed a burgandy coloured EF and i tought the colour looked alright and its not that far off the rosewood on my car.
If possible a scan would be very much appriciated

cheers

Re: What Colour?

i think your talking of the red wine type coloured burgandy, its called bordeaux

anywayz, there are all the burgandy colours

i think the name sparkling burgandy was what took over from cardinal at the start of EL2 / update / whatever you wanna call it

Re: What Colour?

The only sort of Maroon/Red colour available on the EF's was Cardinal Red. Apart from that you had Hot Chili Red which was the standard bright red i.e. XR's and some GLi's and Futura's.

Sparkling Burgundy was EL2 (i think?), Regencey Red was EL series 1 and 2.

As he said in the first post, the EF he saw was close to his current EA colour of rosewood so i think that counts out bordeaux.

Bordeaux was more of a purple colour. I love it. (at the moment)


Burgundy (this it?)


XR - Hot Chilli Red


And this EB is probably the closest to what cardinal red looks like in the steel. (i think)

Re: What Colour?

thanks guys for all your help

JADED6: that second photo was pretty close to the colour but the EF that wasn't that shiney, it was more of a dull burgandy, I'm just wondering if the car that i saw was a custom colour

cheers
