IN China, red marks the color of prosperity. For the Chinese a red Rolls-Royce is a road-going beacon that you’ve made bank in a very big way.
Well, a world away in the land of ten thousand lakes, there’s a 1980 Rolls-Royce Corniche for sale finished in what we can call fire-engine red. Apparently, the topless Royce’s paintwork was redone circa 1990-something according to the seller. And unfortunately the red does extend inside to the contrast piping on the seats (-gag-). But as statements go, three decades on, this Corniche is good fortune on wheels. All it needs now is a license plate with straight-8’s.
