MIURA SPECS

Miura Green Paint Color Codes
Verde, Verde Miura, Rio Green,
aka (lime green)

Lamborghini or Bertone did not keep very good records of the paint codes used on the Miura's in the beginning. In fact it was almost impossible to get any color matched paint from Lamborghini for the earlier damaged Miura's and many cars were just repainted, primarily red. PGP in Pittsburgh,PA USA supplied the then lacquer paint and Bertone had several different shades of green that they used on the Miura Cars. There was Verde, Verde Miura and Rio Green. Since the Lamborghini Miura was a special order car not everyone wanted the same green color either. The records on the 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 Chassis #3066, and in the picture show the Original Color is Verde Green. Not very many Miura's were Originally painted Green. According to Joe Sackey's book, the Paint Code records that Were Kept on the one hundred forty (140) Miura SV cars built, show Only Six (less then 5%) were painted Verde or Verde Miura, sometimes referred to as (lime green). Two were painted Rio Green, one British Green and one was a special ordered green color. The 1967 Miura shown below was painted red. Then after stripping off all the red paint down to bare metal the Original Verde Green color of paint was showing up on the door jams and metal seams. We were able to provide PPG a sample of the Original paint color so they could match it.

When looking through the specifications below you will notice the many different upgrades built into the restoration of the Miura. Upgrades that are beyond what the Lamborghini Factory provided on the SV Models. The Miura was a car in the making at the time with many improvements being made during the short six years it was manufactured by Lamborghini. The Miura changed the way Super Cars were made in the future.
