Blue interior miura

Is it genuine or is it fake?

Blue interior miura

Thoughts on this R/W with blue interior, I have never heard of this variation which has popped up on the MCF Facebook page

i'm waiting for a picture to come back but I am not convinced (would love to be wrong)
the paint looks too thick and frosted rear window (unless it's the angle of the picture)
do any Bulgarian or Hungarian models have blue interiors, just a thought

Google helped me have a look on the net and so far I have not seen a Blue interior in any issue Lambo. I can not look on Christian's site as I do not have anything that opens his new documents anymore.

The paint may be thick suggesting a repaint, however the interior colour is harder to explain?....3D printed or whatever?

Could this actually be a genuine test piece?

It could conceivably be a test interior which has been inserted into a faked body/baseplate combination.

One observation is that the blue colour of the interior is very similar to the blue rear sometimes seen on the #4 Dodge Stake Truck
