1970 Lamborghini Miura P400’S’ by Bertone.......... Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this: 1970 Lamborghini Miura P400'S' by Bertone Chassis no. 4707, Engine no. 30565 - Matching Numbers. Recorded on the original factory chassis list, as having been originally delivered through Lamborauto of Turin on October 7, 1970, and finished in Champagne with a Nero interior. As a very late production "S," it was equipped with the most desirable features of ventilated disc brakes, rear axle constant velocity joints and a thicker, gusseted front chassis frame, similar to that installed on the later "ultimate" SV. Importantly, it was also equipped with factory air conditioning. The color change to the present Nero over Champagne interior was undertaken before the car departed to Italy in the early 1980s. Imported to the United States in 1984, 4704 has until recently, it had remained "under the radar" while in the small, reclusive private collection of a New Jersey enthusiast, who, according to the earliest title, registration slips, and paperwork on file, had owned it since at least 1988. The car has last been used in 1996, after which it remained, alongside three or four Ferrari

- 1968 LAMBORGHINI MIURA P400 - CHASSIS NO. 3510 - Sold new in Italy to a lady in 1968 who sold it to Mr. Peter Wrigley in July 1979. The car's file report that #3510 went back to the Lamborghini factory in 1975 in order to be upgrated to SV specs (only 11 Miura have been upgrated like this one by the factory in the period). It has been fitted with an SV engine (#30608) and had the late SV bodywork. The car stayed 20 years with Mr. Wrigley and then had 3 owners, before we purchased the car. The car have been restored during 2 years (2000 - 2001). It is a rare, perfectly restored example. The original wheels and headlamps are coming with the car. V5C registration (pictures of the car will be added soon.)

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

Needless to say, every great collection must contain a Miura at some point and this example, which is believed to only have 5 owners from new, is accompanied by an excellent history file, has matching numbers status and is in superior condition would make a great choice for any discerning collector.
