The colours went on the special edition genesis models. I've got Alpine white on mine.

in Portugal there a few metallic black g40 genesis.

maybe they were some limited edition or specific colors to some countries.

I assume this is a conversion and not a genuine g40 then?  Proper Genesis G40s were in purple only and there is only 1 or maybe 2 in existence in right hand drive. 

Genesis model normal polos were just a trim level and fairly common and in various colours.

the reason behind them was to Promote the Phil Collins band Gensis on tour

they had special sound systems in them too.

only the g40 ones, non-g40 genesis models weren't anything special, practically the same as CL spec weren't they?

anyway, we are getting off topic here!

according to my brochures the following you can get...

1991 -
black
tornado red
alpine white
capri green metallic
royal blue metallic
pearl grey metallic

1994 -
black
alpine white
tornado red
windsor blue metallic
montana green metallic
brilliant black metallic
pearl grey metallic



however i have seen an L reg maritime blue (which was a lower model colour) and have heard of an indian red metallic one, then theres the purple G40 Genesis colour.  Plus on the continent they had a greater colour range.
