The MGA With An Attitude
RED, RED, And More RED

Andy Preston: My 1960 Coupe and my version of Chariot Red; it was the closest stock color I could find when I painted the car. It's actually a 2009 Audi TT color called Brilliant Red".

Rutger Booy: - My MGA was originally Chariot Red, but in 1979 I had it resprayed in Signal Red, which is a Triumph color. In my opinion it was (still is) a brighter color.

Too dark to be Chariot
Red on a 1600. Actual
color is unknown.

Bill Robinson: My 58 MGA was painted a non original Guard Red which is a Porsche color. I also have non original black leather piping which I felt was a good contrast to the red and something different along with a Rosewood "Lempert" steering wheel.

The car was originally Orient Red but I went back with Porsche Guards Red. Parked next to an orient red car the other car looks orange. -- Ken F, New Orleans, USA
