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

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, early in its life the car was damaged and subsequently returned to the factory. Rather than repair the vehicle, Lamborghini supplied the client with a brand-new SV chassis and rear end, however keeping the original P400 chassis number and front-end, as this was in no way damaged. These upgrades are completely documented by Balboni at the factory and leaves an incredibly special car with a fantastic story. Finished in a Dark Grey with Giallo hide, the condition of the car is fantastic, in terms of appearance and mechanically. 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.

1971 LAMBORGHINI Miura P400 S, 2 Door Coupe, Blu Notte, Nero Leather, previous owners 4, number of keys 2, 28,731 km, We are extremely proud to offer this fabulous Miura for sale, probably the best example of such a car for sale anywhere in the world. Even greatness can be improved upon. In 1968, Lamborghini introduced its updated Miura P400S, which featured a V-12 with revised camshafts that was good for a power output of over 370 horsepower and was mounted on a stiffened chassis. This model was, in turn, followed by the epically exciting, ultimate production Miura, the P400SV, which was first shown at Geneva in 1971. The SV offered even greater performance and improved handling, and it boasted 385 horsepower, with separate lubrication for the engine and gearbox, a limited-slip differential, completely revised suspension, and a leather interior. The rear track was widened five inches, to accommodate wider wheels, which necessitated the Dino-like flaring of the rear body panels. Most menacingly of all were the distinctive laid-back headlamps, which lost their eyelashes in favour of the masculine plain black surrounds. With a top speed of 180 mph, it is no wonder that numerous o

Although the S version of the Miura came out in 1969, it was not radically different from the original P400. Bob Wallace, Lamborghini's development test driver wanted to explore more of the huge performance potential of the Miura, and built his own test bed car which ended up being brutally fast. This 'Jota' was so cutting-edge that only a small number of the improvements incorporated in it made their way in to the later Miura SV. The Jota was destroyed in 1972 in a crash being driven by someone whose abilities fell far behind the car's. Five production SV's were partially 'Jota-ised' but this was mainly cosmetic. This Miura S was supplied new into Japan and has lived there since. The last (fifth) owner set out to produce a car whose closeness to the original Jota specification was much more than skin deep, and there is a comprehensive photo record and bills on file for over £365,000. This work included producing a set of bespoke hand formed aluminium bodywork with exposed rivets and fitting a specially modified SV engine, as well as a simply stunning ground up restoration. The build quality far exceeds anything produced by the factory in period. Please contact us for details of th
