Spot the differences department. The colour picture is from the brochure. The b/w one accompanied a road test report in the 28 June 1952 issue of 'Bedrijfsvervoer'. The sky looks a bit different, the balcony seems the same, the fine young ladies and young man in the UK brochure are very decently dressed, as opposed to the beachware in the other picture. The car looks the same too, except that it has grown overriders (an optional extra) and a miniature number plate.
