    Yes faded lighter from a darker grey. Check the back of your A pillar garnish or inner glove box door for remnants of the original color perhaps?

    Door pulls are typically the same color as the door panels, the inserts can be different like the grey material on your seats.

    Pics would help.

    Hi Jim

    I trusted expert on the matter I’ve spoken to says you car was originally bleu notte / senape and consigned to Ageco in Lebanon.

    Ive haven’t seen images of you car but he mentions the seats and doors appear to be original but questions that the colours of dash and carpets are.

    I hope this helps a little

    Regards

    Aahhh….. the “King Faisal” car (20094), as we referred to it back in 1984. It was being handled by a Mr. Karaoghlanian in Rochelle Park, NJ.

    He claimed it had been owned by a member of the Saudi royal family…it was clearly a desert car…the interior was faded and the paint was bad…

    That was minor though, the motor was seized at around 7500 miles, and the car had virtually no documentation of any sort…no title , no DOT bond etc. Mr. “Coco” claims it was brought in under “diplomatic license”…but no proof was offered.

    Coco wanted $ 10K…we offered $ 5K…and nothing happened.

    Later Mr. Vinny at Auto Elite had the car and we bought a spare wheel from it.

    Then it disappeared…around 1987, I checked with the DOT (where I had contacts) and there was no record of the car !

    Hi to all,

    I'm looking for the correct current ratings of the P250 fuses. In the Urraco's user manual no mention at all, only the drawing of the fuse box with wiring loom connections info, but no idea about the current ratings of the factory installed fuses.

    Many thanks if someone can be of any help.

    Yes it does. With the headlights up it reminds me of my Jalpa. This video looks like it was just uploaded.

    Ummm...the stick clearly shows a P-250...but that is not "the thing"...slow it down to 1/2 speed on the video and things look MUCH more realistic :)

    I have had P-250, 300 and Jalpa motors on the dyno (open exhaust)...maybe the 3.5 liter is a little lower in pitch...but there is not much difference. Different muffler arrangements do make a difference.

    yes its remarkable how they do sound similar considering the combustion cambers shapes and valve orientation are entirely different with the P250 and P300.

    i was just in a silhouette last month with a quicksilver exhaust. I was surprised how quite and more tempered it was than a P300 with just a glass plane separating the noise reverberating back off the louvers. the jalpa is even more muted with the USA cats and boxed exhaust and deeper with the longer stroke. the engine decklid has a lot to do with it i reckon

    IMO the P250 ive driven sounded wonderful...smoother and more refined than the P300 which you can hear and feel the timbre from the chain driven cams when you put your foot in it. P300 sounds absolutely savage and exciting at top rpm's with the stock ansa. I cant think of production vintage v8 car over the years that has such a raw exhilarating sound, maybe an F355?

    all the V8's do sound fantastic, ive never been in running P200 perhaps thats the best sounding one?

    If anyone here in this forum is after an extremely beautifully preserved Lamborghini Urraco P300, kept in black paint, the interior completely original in beige. First delivery in Belgium. Send me a private message.

    Actually looks quite nice! The NOM is not that much of an issue IMO, it may hurt the value a bit though.

    Does anybody have a picture of Verde Medeo on the exterior of a Urraco. Also I’m curious what Verde Chiaro interior looks like! Thanks in advance
