The first, and dare we say, finest super car of all-time.
The Lamborghini Miura SV, was more than just the first of its kind, though, as every last detail of the car was carefully installed to create a truly meticulous machine.
The ground-breaking, sleek curved exterior which captured the youthful spirit of the 1970’s age, formed one of the most unique bodies ever to be seen on a sports car. It’s simplistic, refined details, from the curved shaped doors to the pop-up headlights, conceived the concept of a ‘supercar’- a term which now stands to represent the most innovative and exciting models in modern engineering.
But again, the Miura was much more than just an aesthetic experiment. Built around a mid-mounted V-12, the Miura was installed with a widened rear body work for more aggressive stance to supplement the 385 brake horsepower which propelled the car from 0-60mph in just 5.8 seconds.
Complete in the iconic original colour combination of the Miura series, with complimenting Nero leather, this specific 1972 edition of the Miura P400 is the latest car to be released ahead of RM Sotheby’s ‘Driven by Disruption’ auction in New York on December 10th 2015.
Including the car’s original paintjob, the Miura remains in pristine condition. That is largely down to the fact that the car was subject to a full restoration at the hands of one of the world’s finest workshops, which housed a multitude of former Lamborghini employees. The entire restoration was undertaken with disregard for cost, and that translated in to every last detail of the car, from every nut and bolt, undergoing a complete update.
The result is this spectacular specimen, which showcases the true charms of the original supercar. One of the finest ever machines to be offered at auction.
