All colours can be contrasted by a choice of Pepper White or black roof and exterior mirror caps, with bonnet stripes, 60 Years logos and a bespoke 17-inch alloy wheel design completing the look.

The unique logo also shows up inside on the front headrests and steering wheel, and LED puddle light projection when the driver's door is opened.

Sports leather steering wheel and exclusive Dark Maroon leather finish seats are also standard.
