We are proud to offer this Lamborghini Miura P 400 Series II which has been produced in the Lamborghini factory in mid 1970 and registered to its first Swiss owner on the 18th of May 1971. It was ordered by its first owner Carmine Mariangelo living in Lausanne in the more elegant colour scheme of argento with black seats with textile inserts. The second owner Roger Poinsot living nearby in Geneva fall in love with the Miura P 400 S only five years later when he registered the car on the 17th of May 1976. It changed hands for the last time before we have been able to purchase this Lamborghini icon on the 6th of March 1981 again to a Swiss citizen living in the north east part of the country. The last owner had it for no less than 34 years and decided to sell it last year. The car was part of a major classic car collection. It has been serviced nearly each year at the Swiiss based Lamborghini dealerships. The mileage today shows 66 895 km which is documented by its large history file full of Lamborghini service records going back to the late seventies. It might be more than difficult to find a true three owner from new Lamborghini Miura P 400 S which has been always perfectly maintai
We are proud to offer the Lamborghini Miura P 400 which has been produced in the Lamborghini factory in 1968. It was delivered to its first owner through Voitures Monceau Paris on the 18.04.1968. It was ordered in the more elegant colour scheme of argento with black seats. It was the 174th built Miura P 400 carrying the engine number 1857 which is still today sitting in the car. There is a gap in history in its early days until it came to Denmark in 1986 where it was kept for a longer period. The large history file shows service records going back into the eighties. The car benefited from a complete restoration in the last few years. It received a perfect new paint job having chosen a dark blue metallic contrasting to the new upholstery in beige. The complete technique has been overhauled in one of the known Lamborghini workshops in 2016 documented by an amount of records. The latest compression test from March 2017 made in our workshop has brought the best results possible to achieve. This was documented as well on a recent test drive when we learned how fast a well done engine accelerates. On and on it is amazing how fast an early Miura P 400 could be, it shows tremendous power a
This Miura, chassis number 3069, was delivered new to Zurich-based Lamborghini dealer Foitek in July 1967. It was sent to sunny California in 1969 and remained there until being transported to Florida in 2005 for a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration at the workshop of the marque experts of Ultimate Motor Works in Orlando. The work was completed in February of 2010. The car was stripped to bare metal and every part of the car received individual attention from the restoration experts. From the paint and the body to the interior, suspension, wiring and brakes, everything was restored to concours level. The car was painted red earlier in his history, it was returned to its factory correct yellow. There was no need to restore the blue interior, as it was in such original and excellent condition. Even Lamborghini's retired Chief Test Driver and factory historian, Valentino Balboni, was involved in the process, inspecting it on several occasions throughout its restoration, and on the first visit, remarked to the owner at that time: '‘This must be one of the first 20 cars we ever made.” The visible clues for this observation were that certain bracing points on the chassis were c
"The Italian Job" Factory original 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, chassis number 3586, finished in Arancio Miura (Miura Orange) with a fully original Pelle Bianco leather interior. Completed for delivery on 2nd July 1968 and just 5 owners from new. This stunning car is a "Second Series" P400 with the superior (less flexible) 1mm thick chassis. It has recorded 19,000km and is in show condition. This is a fantastically original and preserved car. A new engine block was fitted in 2011 (due to a hairline crack); the original matching-numbers block comes with the car. It also received a concours-standard paintwork refresh at the same time, but is in all other respects time-warp pristine original. This stunning Miura, one of only three "Arancio Miura" cars built in 1968, and the only one with a white leather interior, is now acknowledged to be the actual car used in the iconic opening sequence of the 1969 movie, "The Italian Job". It was driven by factory client manager Enzo Moruzzi to the Gran San Bernardo pass in Italy for 3 days' filming, returned to the factory and dispatched to the Lamborghini dealer Zani on 2nd July 1968. The car and the story of its recovery was featured in the May 2015 edition of the Octane magazine. It's first public appearance was at the London Classic Car show. Many thanks to UKTurtables for setting up a show-stopping display. Arguably, the most famous Lamborghini ever made, and a serious potential entrant into the worlds most prestigious 'preservation class' concours events.
