Over the years, the British Touring Car Championship has seen many legendary cars with liveries to remember. This month’s Revolution looks through the archives to pick Six of the Best 

Ecurie Ecosse Vauxhall Cavalier, David Leslie, 1993

The Ecurie Ecosse name has appeared in many motorsport categories over the years, flying the blue and white cross of the Scottish Saltire.

BMW has entered some pretty cars over the decades, including the flag-waving Warsteiner livery and the one with a large 007 logo on the bonnet promoting the Bond film Goldeneye.

Sometimes something simple becomes a classic and this black and red beast is a case in point. The Sierra RS500 is an iconic machine, whatever its colour, and it was a tough call between this scheme and the famous light blue and white Kaliber livery run by Soper’s main rival Andy Rouse. The unique ‘baddie’ looks, however, just gave this version the edge.
