With the lipstick red clean paint job and low ride handle bars Its a piece of beauty ,though derived is from its predecessor, the original Continental GT launched in 1965.
RE has paid attention to every minor detail regarding the fit and finish and is apparent even on closer inspection. All the buttons and livers feel notch free and proper to sight and feel.
