Bonneville T100 – Meriden Blue and Tangerine
Bonneville T100 – Meriden Blue and Tangerine (Triumph/)

What’s in a color or model name? Not much, unless it happens to be the new motorcycle you’re considering. Or if you’re a Color Explorer, the actual job title for those who name colors for a living.

In the spirit of brand identity and press releases, Triumph has announced new paint and livery options for all its lineup, save for models introduced this past year (Tiger 1200 family, Tiger Sport 660, and Speed Triple 1200 RR). In addition, two models will get updated names to better capture their “family connections.”

In the Modern Classics lineup, the Street Twin will now be known as the Speed Twin, while the Street Scrambler has been re-christened the Scrambler 900. This leaves the Street Triple 765 RS as the only “street” member of the Triumph family.

And the new colors? Lots of matte finishes and more than a few nods to the halcyon days of the 60′s and 70′s. In particular, the Bonneville T100′s Meriden Blue and Tangerine evokes the iconic Gulf livery of Le Mans movie-era racers.

Enough words; let’s go to the visuals. All new and updated model colors & livery shown below.

Wild Rover – 1966 Rover P6

RACEPRO 201311 p1 jpg

Photo: Pete AustinMaking its debut in 1963, the Rover P6 was introduced as the new jewel in the crown of the Rover fleet. The car was voted European Car of the Year in 1964 and it revelled in the glow of Britain’s last true motor manufacturing era. By the time the P6 reached the end of its shelf life in 1977, Britain’s motor car industry was in a spiral of decline from which it would never recover.

Author enjoyed taking the car he referred to as “a bit of an animal” around Silverstone, revelling in its responsiveness as he applied its ample power.

Built at Solihull in the British West Midlands, the Rover was very much the executive’s car of the era. Used by company managers and by the police as a “Panda” car, the Rover was a car of style and only a Jaguar parked on your driveway allowed the man of middle England to feel he enjoyed a higher social standing.

HEMI HEAVEN: The Engine of Our Dreams
LOT #760 – 1970 PLYMOUTH HEMI ‘CUDA – NO RESERVE

The HEMI engine, known for its hemispherical shaped combustion chamber, stands as an icon in the realm of automotive engineering, renowned for its power, distinctive sound and enduring legacy. What sets the HEMI apart is its unique combustion chamber design, featuring hemispherical-shaped heads with the spark plug is placed at the top-center, which shortens the burn distance of the air/fuel mixture, allowing for optimal combustion that results in performance all car enthusiasts can appreciate.

One of the key factors contributing to the HEMI’s legendary status is its storied history. Developed by Chrysler in the early 1950s, the HEMI quickly gained a reputation for dominating the racetrack and the streets alike. Its presence in NASCAR, drag racing and other motorsports solidified its status as a symbol of speed and performance.

Beyond its racing pedigree, the HEMI engine has left an indelible mark on popular culture. From muscle cars like the Dodge Charger and Challenger to iconic vehicles like the Plymouth ’Cuda and the Chrysler 300, the HEMI has powered some of the most beloved and memorable collector vehicles in history.

The HEMI’s enduring popularity can be attributed to its ongoing evolution and innovation. While the basic design principles remain consistent, modern iterations of the HEMI engine feature advanced technologies that include variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation and direct fuel injection, enhancing both performance and efficiency.

The HEMI engine’s combination of history, performance and cultural significance has cemented its status as one of the most iconic and legendary powerplants in automotive history. With its distinctive design, unmistakable sound and unrivaled performance, the HEMI engine remains a symbol of power, speed and American automotive ingenuity.

ROAR OF THE KINGDOM: Collector Cars Inspired by Wildlife
LOT #685 – 1985 DE TOMASO PANTERA GT5 – NO RESERVE

Throughout automotive history, there has been an undeniable fascination with naming cars after nature’s creatures, whether for their attributes, characteristics or simply to evoke a sense of power and grace. These automotive creations not only reflect the natural world but also capture the essence of speed, agility and strength associated with their animal namesakes.

One iconic example is the Ford Mustang, named after the free-roaming wild horse. The Mustang’s sleek design and powerful performance embodied the spirit of its namesake, symbolizing freedom and adventure on the open road.

The Impala is one of Chevrolet’s most successful models and was named after the graceful and swift African antelope. Over the years, the Impala vehicle has evolved, but its association with speed and agility remains.

The Dodge Viper, with its venomous performance, derives its name from the deadly viper snake. Introduced in the early 1990s, the Viper has always been synonymous with raw power and a striking presence on the road. The name emphasizes the car’s aggressive design and high-performance capabilities, reflecting the qualities of its reptilian inspiration.

These are just a few examples of cars named after wildlife, each with its own story to tell and its own unique blend of style, performance and personality. Whether prowling the streets like a Viper or galloping down the highway like a Mustang, these automotive creations continue to capture the imagination of drivers around the world, forging a timeless connection between man and machine.
