The unique Pepsi Concorde.

In 1996, Pepsi struck a deal with Air France to promote their re-branding and new corporate logo, so an Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde, tail number F-BTSD (affectionately referred to as “Sierra Delta”) was painted in their colors as the high point of a massive marketing campaign. 

Due to the heat generated by Mach +2 flight, Concordes were supposed to keep an almost all-white livery, so this new blue one forced pilots to stay at Mach 1.7 so the plane would not experience problems.  

The Pepsi colors only lasted for 16 charted flights, after which the aircraft returned to her regular schedule in her old white livery, the amount payed for this stunt remaining secret.

Monopoly Millennium Edition (1999)

“The board is made of silver holographic foil; the money and dice are transparent; the houses and hotels have a new futuristic shape; and the tokens are little icons of turn-of-the-century life: a computer, a cell phone, an in-line skate, a globe, a Concorde, a sleek car, an all-terrain bicycle, and a dog (this time it’s a yellow Lab instead of a Scottie).”
