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
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. We are delighted to be able to offer this stunning Jota evocation again. It is based on a Miura S which was supplied new into Japan, and has spent most of its life there. Its last Japanese 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 the extensive specification, which is too lengthy to list here. We have taken this work a significant stage further, resulting in a show-stopping Miura which bears the closest inspection from even the most accomplished automotive engineer. However we would be able to convert the car back to S specification should this be preferred, and with Miura prices rising so rapidly this would be cost effective for its new owner. This is almost certainly the most visually striking Miura, and the most exhilarating to drive, currently available anywhere. It also sounds superb - please click button opposite!
