The curves of the original R1 Collection were inspired by the distinctive front wing of the 1960s AC Cobra. The R1-S Collection was released soon after, the idea behind these razors that carried the additional ‘S’ logo was to draw further on the sports element using the iconic colour tones of some of the most legendary cars that ever been made. Each razor colour can be connected with a classic sports car; from the 1960s Austin Healey Blue 3000 to the 1971 Lamborghini Miura.
The Orange influence
R1-S Signal Orange
Signal orange is without question one of the most distinctive colours of the modern racing livery. The automotive paint colour used on the R1-S is most commonly linked to the Porsche 911. Photo Credit: Pinterest
A classic Tribute
R1-S Blue 3000
The metallic blue selected by Bolin Webb for the R1-S Blue 3000 shares the same distinctive automotive colour as the iconic Austin Healey 3000, a British sports car built between 1959 and 1967.
No Racing without Red
R1-S Monza Red
The R1-S Monza Red combines two Italian automotive references. ‘Monza’ derives from the legendary Italian racing track and the colour red shares the same pantone as that of the Ferrari 275.
Power of Yellow
R1-S Ferrara Yellow
The R1-S Ferrara Yellow is named after the Italian province Ferrara, home to one of Italy’s great automotive marquees – Lamborghini. So it was natural to find a yellow that reflected that of the 1971 Lamborghini Miura.
