    Verde Medio is one of my favourite colors for the Dino! Very rare to find, though.

    The fashion trend in automotive colors has been towards the grey, blue, silver and black for a very long time now. Green, in any shade, is rarely seen - except for an occasional Prius in California. The few Dinos that were ordered in green have often been color changed by now. Too bad, in my opinion.

    This car is beautiful. The light brown interior makes it even better. Here is another photo from the same site.

    There were 10 UK market cars supplied in Verde Medio John - 5 GT's and 5GTS's. Six of those had beige vinyl interiors, one had black leather, two had sabbia leather and one had red leather. If you attend any of the FOC national events you may catch sight of #07232 which is still in it's original and unrestored factory paint/interior leather combination of Verdio Medio with red leather ..... or at least it was a few years ago when I last saw it.

    Lovely car, but a shame about the shields. I am not against shields per se - I have them on my 550 - but IMO they don't look right on a Dino.

    When it comes to green Dinos, my favourite shade is the Verde Germoglio (have I spelt that right?) on yours, Iain.

    You have spelt it correctly John. Verde Germoglio is quite a contemporary looking colour as you can have very similar shades of green on current Porsches, Lamborghini's, McLaren's etc. Verde Medio is much more of a period colour when you see it in person.
