Rebel goes like safe rocket

by Nigel Wigmore

WITH my adopted team — the French, of course — faring much better than us in the World Cup I thought I would show my allegiance not by warbling France’s national anthem, La Marseillaise, but by driving around this week in a suitably liveried car.

True, the Volvo V60 is not French made. Volvos are still determinedly Swedish though owned by the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group of China.

And the hue known as “French Blue” is a distinctive colour probably coveted by the French as resolutely as any other part of their great culture.

However, I was pleased to learn that Volvo describes the colour of this week’s drive — the dashing Volvo V60 R-Design 8-Speed GT — as Rebel Blue.
