I am trying to find out the exact color code of the special edition Jimny known as "Shinsei".
Those Jimnys have a particular shade of yellow body color.

As far as I know, that edition has been sold exclusively in Italy for the last couple of years only.

Here are a few examples:

Does anyone at least know where to search for the color code or who to ask?

This was a hard one, tried to find an ad with a car that maybe had a vin number but no luck. Closest I can find is Active Yellow, SUZ.ZWH .
But cant be certain without a vin number or a comparison. If you go to PPG Paint IT you can search all models and what colours they come with, but not always that good on limited cars

And a mention of it being a 1970's "Dark Yellow" Paint Code?

Here too - autonetmagz.net/suzuki-jimny-shinsei-a-s...nor-its-elder/28609/

It's the same colour as the old LJ ! -

    Here is another video which shows the vehicle's color even better:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxhA4gCyubc


    I found out that Shinsei was a one-time limited edition of 100 vehicles, sold only in Italy. Each vehicle had a small metal plate inside with inscribed X/100 number, where X indicates which one of the 100 vehicles that one is.

    I can confirm S200KYS's findings that the color is called "1970s Dark Yellow" and that it should (more or less) be the same color as used on the LJ20 back in the days.

    However, the only question is which color code is that old 1970s color.

    Does anyone know of an Italian Jimny forum etc. where such a question could be asked?


    EDIT:
    The alternative ZWH color is a relatively close match, but I think that it is a bit darker.
    Here is an example piece in that factory color (every photo camera takes pictures a bit different though):

    I think that I have found the exact OEM color code for this yellow Shinsei Jimny.

    The Suzuki color code should be: SVO

    Source of information is this 3rd party list of many Suzuki color codes:
    www.cartouchuppaint.com.au/2017-suzuki-touch-up-colours/

    The description for "SVO" color code is "SHINSEI DARK YELLOW 70’S". It is listed under the category of non-metallic colors.

    However, I can not find any real-life examples of vehicles painted in this color code through my searches on the Internet.

    Can anyone else get any more info or confirmation if this is the correct color code? For example someone with proper access to Suzuki's databases?
    Also some info on which vehicles apart from Jimny Shinsei were painted in this color, and possibly some pictures?
