Design: Within the heraldic shield above the label name, the spread eagle shape is formed by the lettering of the word 'Austria,' while the crossbow, the symbol of Switzerland, is Elite Special's corporate logo. Another shield shape, with a rounded base, forms the main panel. The design has the clean and logical lines of German design.

History: Elite-Special was produced by the Swiss company Turicaphone for the Austrian market. Turicaphone maintained a recording studio in the Austrian capital of Vienna.
