My apologies if this has been posted before:

Has anyone been watching 'The Bridge' on BBC4? I put it on my SKY+ and watched 4 episodes yesterday.

The lead female drives what I think is an SC, in a sort of Dijon mustard colour.

Does anyone know what the colour is called? (or anything more about the car in question)

Thanks.

Pretty sure it's not an SC. It has the full narrow body and chrome windows, not the slightly wider arches of the SC. I reckon it's a 2.7 or 2.7S circa 74-77.

Brilliant looking car and a great TV show.

Looks more brown than pea green, but a little hard to tell with the intentionally drab palette they use in the show.



From the close ups seems like a very nicely restored example.

That's it.

Not sure that it's pea green. Looks more brown/yellow, hence my Dijon mustard analogy.

I really like it - it's a colour you wouldn't think of ordering, but on a 70s car it looks great.

My missus likes both the show and the car!

It sounds like a flat four though. A 912E perhaps?

In the first episodes it sounded like a 6cyl but in this weeks installment it was definitely a flat four engine. Possibly the sound is dubbed on during editing, maybe next week it will be a watercooled V8 or a turbo I4.

I thought the 912E was for North America only? Wouldn't rule it out completely, obviously, but would make it fairly unlikely...

As above, who knows whether they used library sound files or did it properly.

Watched the Bridge this evening.

It has US spec front side lights and definitely sounds like a flat 4. Narrow arches, chrome window surrounds and a black grill with silver rear badge....

Really do think this is a 912E...

Not quite: I'm presuming MGRON is the colour in Swedish - I'd still like to know what it is in English!
