The Yellow Rolls Royce

The Yellow Rolls Royce is a film that was released in 1964 directed by Anthony Asquith starring Ingrid Bergman.

I do like the tag line, 'Everything happens in the Yellow Rolls Royce'. Now that is slightly intreaging.

The film won a BAFTA and a Golden Globe and more about the movie can be seen at the worlds premiere film site, the Internet Movie Database.

The car below is similar to the one used on the film. A 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom II with Hooper coachwork, in yellow of course.

Interestingly enough Goldfinger had a similar car in the James Bond film.

Now lets look at some other yellow model versions.

A very late model Rolls Royce Silver Spirit. After the initial shock, the colour seriously grows on you. At first glance its horrid, but after a couple of blinks, it looks really impressive.

The colour is even standard on the new Phantom Drop Head Coupe. Semaphore Yellow to be precise.

Now to the Bentley Continential GT. I'm surprised to see yellow at a motor show.

To my favourite yellow car. The Bentley Continential T.

Simply superb.
