The brainchild of seven young engineers working after hours at Lamborghini on what would become the world's first supercar- a revolutionary mid-engined design that had manufacturers like Ferrari scrambling to compete, the Lamborghini Miura P400 was first unveiled for the 1966 Geneva Auto Salon. The world's fastest production car at the time, the Miura P400 offered a 350hp, 4 litre DOHC transverse V12 engine with six Weber carburettors, five-speed chrome gated manual transmission (paddles were not on the options list), double-wishbone coil-spring independent suspension, and four-wheel Girling disc brakes. Using a lightweight frame draped in aluminium body panels the Miura P400's beautiful yet aggressive design was a combination of feminine curves contrasted with strong Bull-horn inspired architecture. Progressing through three models from the original P400 to the P400 S and SV with just 763 cars ever produced, the Miura's incredibly low production numbers and ground breaking design have cemented this classic as a must have amongst collectors around the world. And, as with any collectable car the 'first of' editions are typically the most pure and most sought after. Leaving the Bolog
"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.

The Lamborghini P 400 SV has been originally delivered to the US being obviously the very first production SV coming into the country. From the very first day it carried its red colour with a contrasting black interior. Needless to say that it still has its original factory installed engine which certainly has been correctly stamped with its matching engine number. According to the Lamborghini factory paperwork it was sold new through Joe Marchetti, Chicago, Illinois to its first owner Eddie Weschler of Nashotah, Wisconsin. Ed was known as one of the early and fanatic Italian sports car enthusiasts in the sixties, seventies and eighties. Beside his love for Lamborghini he was as well known for his passion for Ferrari owning the main icons of Maranello like the Ferrari 250 Tour De France or Ferrari 250 GT SWB and lots of different early cars for the road and track. Ed kept his SV for nearly 20 years and it is told that he sold it with an extremely low and original mileage of only 12 000 mls in the beginning of the nineties. It was sold to Europe in 1992 finding its new home for another five years with a German collector near to Frankfurt/Germany. It came into the next and last owner
1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S | Chassis no. 4827 Â In November 1968 the first Miura S was produced and made its first appearance at the 1968 Turin Motor Show. The Lamborghini Miura P400 S benefited from several improvments over the Miura P400 such as: reshaped combustion chambers, higher-lift cams and larger carburetors on fatter manifolds. Â Our car, chassis 4827, is one of the very last Miura S produced, also known as Miura S "Series II", and benefits from important improvments compared to the first Miura P400S such as: ventilated disk brakes, reinforced chassis, high profile camshafts and improved distribution timing. This Miura P400 S chassis 4827 was sold new by SOCARIA to its first owner in Belgium in January 1971. In 1980, it was purchased by its second Belgian owner who retained the car for the following 22 years before the car went back to its native country. The last owner purchased 4827 in 2012 and decided to repaint the car in Yellow Fly. At that time, all numbers appearing on the body (699) were checked and pictures. Â The car retains its original black leather interior and carpets which are in perfect condition. The odometer shows 26.085 Kms from new. Mechanically, th
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 Italian owner on the 21st of October 1970. It was ordered by its first owner in one of the most attractive colour combinations available at the Lamborghini works. There are few colours which we have in mind picturing or dreaming of the shape of a Miura: first there is always the so called Miura verde (light green) and second there is this famous Arancio. Lamborghini dared not only to decide for this dramatic design drawn by the blood young genious Giuseppe Ghandini working for Bertone. Lamborghini was as well brave enough to picture and offer the car in bright yellow, orange, light green or light blue which caused a revolution in the sportscar world. According to the Lamborghini factory paperwork this Miura S on offer seems to be the one and only Miura S Series II carrying the Arancio colour with its so called unusual Senape/beige interior. After its long and documented Italian history the Miura S Series II ended up in a very sophisticated small Ferrari collection in North of Germany parting its garage with a Lusso, 330 GTS and Dayt
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

The P400 Miura was not only the first supercar to come from Lamborghini, but also the first the world had ever seen. Original unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Salon, the Miura completely redefined the styling of a high-performance car. Much of the styling excellence can be attributed to its transversely-mounted engine, sitting just behind the passenger compartment, creating lines that were completely alien in the mid 60s. The performance of the Miura could more than match the extreme styling of the car; the 4 litre V12 produced around 350bhp and was capable of propelling the beautiful body to speeds in excess of 165 mph. However, it is the attention to detail that means even today it remains one of the most stunning cars ever produced. Marcello Gandini of the Bertone styling house can be credited with creating such a magnificent design; for example using the doors to create the shape of a raging bull. The example that we are offering left the factory in 1967; an original EU car that was exported new to Portugal. However, in 1974 the vehicle was returned to Lamborghini's Santa Agata factory and upgraded to SV specification; one of the very few cars to enjoy this upgrade in period. These upgrades, including the suspension, brakes and engine are completely documented by Balboni at the factory and leaves an incredibly special car with a fantastic story and provenance. The car is now finished in Nero Cangiante with Giallo hide, and sits in absolutely fantastic overall condition, both in terms of paintwork, interior and most importantly under the bonnet, following extensive work at our own service centre. The iconic status of the Miura means that long-term values are only set to increase, with this example being an SV available for the value of a P400S.
