A rare 1995 T5-R wearing the famous Cream Yellow paint is for sale in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
It’s one of roughly 300 Cream Yellows in the United States.
The 1995 850 T-5R was limited in exterior paint color choices:
Cream yellow – 2537 worldwide including saloon and estate. Cream Yellow was marketed in the Australian market as ‘Faded Yellow’ to compensate for the unrelenting Australian sun. The Gothenburg boffins were aware of the 1990s paint technology, and the fact it wouldn’t retain its deep luster over the course of time, and hence, the clever marketing descriptor, ‘Faded Yellow’ was coined.
Stone Black – 2516 worldwide including saloon and estate
Olive green metallic – 1911 worldwide including saloon and estate
Colour distribution was limited in some countries i.e not all countries got all 3 colours, Norway only received yellow.
Limited trial colours of metallic grey and purple were produced, but numbers were incredibly low (somewhere in the order of 6 units, some of which are still on the road in Norway.)
