Sport Blue

Sport Blue is a colour which has always fallen under the radar for me, but judging by these photos of Morgan's demonstrator Plus 4 it looks fantastic with black alloys and black stone guard. I'm now thinking of this for my Roadster, alongside silver. I think the blue is a bit more vintage and would look better with a traditional 9 stud hood as opposed to the slightly more modernistic silver. Any lovers of Sport Blue here?

Morgan were also running a demonstrator in opalescent silver blue and it looks great. I was thinking Yarwood Honey would go well with Sport Blue.

Your dealer should have a painted shape in all the Sport Colours. Look at that to get how it looks in daylight.

Problem is that professional marketing shots are often tweaked, for example the hood / rear close-up to me is way too 'blue' for standard sport blue

I agree with that - I think the last photograph probably gives a more accurate impression of Sport Blue.

I am very fond of blue and the shade in these pics is very nice indeed. I too suspect trads can look a tad more.. err.. authentic in non metallic colours..? Whereas my +8 is Jaguar cabernet !

I also enjoyed viewing the pics too, thanks for posting.

Nice colour, much better than silver. Would combine it with dark blue leather.
