Evening guy and girls, i have had a quick look around here, but was wandering does anyone know how many G40's came in the different colours. As there must be alot more red ones compared to capri green.

Think Helios blue was available on them. There's a dark blue, a purpley blue and a light blue (although unsure about the light blue being a G40 option).

Metallic Royal Blue - LA5U

I thought there were two reds, but might be wrong.. maybe G40's only came in Tornado Red  :-\

Tornado Red - LY3D
Flash Red - LP3G

Suppose at the time red will off been seen as more 'sporty'.. and I believe metallic paints such as capri green will of cost quite a bit more which explains the contrast in quantity of colors around.

I reckon the least often seen colour for UK G40's is probably Maritime blue...it's a dark solid colour,i've seen on just one late G40.
Other markets had some colours we never had.
Brilliant Black metallic.
Calypso metallic. (Greeny-silver)
Silver metallic.

Don't forget however that you could special order any colour...might be some really unusual colours out there somewhere.

The G40 was an expensive car as it is. So I doubt there will be many that did want to make it even more expensive with a special colour.

Expensive in the UK,yes. But I suspect,not quite so much in the rest of europe. I imagine this is why european models are often higher specced, heated seats, headlight washers,tinted glass, leather steering wheels are often seen on the continent, but rare here.

There was a genuine silver metallic one G40 on the German ebay for quite some time priced at around 5000 euro I think.

Like rml2711 said I bet there's some special ones out there hidden!
