Behold: the 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale – the world’s first mid-engined supercar. Launched in 1964 and based on Kiwi test driver Bob Wallace’s experimental Miura Jota, only 764 were made of which only 150 were SVs.
This vehicle, with its original 385bhp 4-litre V12 power plant and Oro Metallizzato paintwork has had a full Concours restoration, making it, arguably, the finest survivor of its type.
Yours at auction tomorrow (for the second time this year) for about €2.25 million.
Behold: the 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale – the world’s first mid engined supercar, it debuted in 1966 and put Lamborghini up there with Ferrari. Of 764 built, only 150 were SVs – the ultimate iteration of the Miura with a 385bhp 4-litre V12.
This numbers-matching, fully documented car, which only ever had two owners, is presented in its original Oro Metallizzato paintwork after a Concours restoration.
Possibly the best surviving example of its type and yours for around €2,360,000.
