Classic design, constantly improved technology and riding comfort – that and much more characterises the Vespa. But the iconic original colours of the old scooters from the last century are also an important part of Vespa culture and a science in itself. Anyone who still has a Vespa in its original paintwork today, even if the paint is damaged or rusty, can consider themselves lucky. These old ladies are far more valuable than a newly painted model.
Original Vespa colours from the 60s to the 80s
The company CULT CAR COLORS did not miss the opportunity to create a nail polish gift set consisting of three original Vespa colour shades. In cooperation with SIP-Scootershop, the set, consisting of three 15ml bottles, was created in the iconic shades Rosso Corsa 806, Turchese 240 and Giallo Texas 935. The following models from the 60s to 80s were painted in these shades:
|Turchese 240||50 N Allungata|
|50 S Allungata|
|Giallo Texas 935||50 S Allungata|
|200 Rally (2nd series in Germany)|
|125 TS Turismo Speziale|
|Rosso Corsa 806||50 S Allungata|
|50 S Unificata|
|PX 125 E|
|P 150 E|
|PX 200 E Arcobaleno|
|PK 50 XL Rush|
|PX 125 T5 Pole Position|
|PX 125 T5 Elestart Pole Position|
Copied from the car industry
Fun fact: Nail polish has its origins in car paint. As early as the 1930s, colour pigments from the automobile industry were used because they were easier to dissolve and offered a greater variety of colours than the dyes commonly used up to that time.
CULT CAR COLORS is all about these very colours, because in addition to the Vespa colours, other iconic sports car colours are part of the nail polish range.
They consist of 80% natural ingredients, are vegan and animal-free, free of microplastics and produced and bottled in Germany.
The gift boxes come in a classy black cardboard box with silver hot foil embossing and banderole and include a postcard with a roller motif as a little extra. The labels on the bottles are illustrated with loving attention to detail and show various Vespa details. When the bottles are taken out of the box, charming sayings of scooter riders are revealed, which are printed underneath.
A great and unusual gift for all Vespa fans! You can find more great gift ideas from the Vespa world in this article.
