1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S For Sale In London (LHD) For Sale

1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S  For Sale In London (LHD) The most original unmolested Miura S in the world according to Valentino Balboni Matching Numbers Well-Documented History Original Example With Factory Colours "Cinghiale" (Wild Boar hide) Special order. Original Owners Manual and Tools The Lamborghini Miura, named after Don Eduardo Miura Fernández, was the legendary breeder of fierce Spanish fighting bulls. Before the arrival of the Miura, there were a number of sports cars that offered high levels of performance, but the Miura was truly revolutionary in defining the modern concept of what the supercar was going to become. It was first introduced to the public in March 1966 at the Geneva Salon, crediting its iconic design to the then relatively unknown Bertone designer Marcello Gandini, who was only 22 years old at the time. The inception of the Miura was also crucial to the work of Gian Paulo Dallara and Paolo Stanzini; who became masters in their own right. The Miura’s technical specifications remain impressive even to this date, given it's lightweight frame. The 370 bhp, 3,929 cc DOHC transverse mid-mounted alloy V-12 engine contains four Weber 40 IDL-3C carburetors, five-speed manual transaxle, independent front and rear suspension with A-arms, coil springs, tubular shock absorbers, and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 98.4 in. Initially, this Miura S, ‘4377' was registered for road use in 1969, in the South of France. It's first owner ordered it in bright red and with optional air conditioning. The soundtrack was provided by the intake howl of the Webber carburettors and the rasp from the dual exhaust tips. What truly sets this car apart from other examples is that it includes the rare extra option of Cinghiale, or Wild Boar hide. According to legendary Lamborghini Test Driver and expert, Valentino Balboni, it was Bertone, the car’s design house, who recommended this extravagant hide. He noted that only a select few examples of the Miura were built with this option, making ‘4377’ even more rare. Given Miura S, 4377's stunning originality and fine condition, and the additional extremely rare and special high quality leather which was used on only select cars, the provenance of our Miura S is sensational. At the onset of the oil crisis in 1973, speed limits were cut to a maximum of 80 mph and given that '4377' could enjoy European motorways at an enjoyable 170 mph, the original owner carefully stored his Miura during this time in its pristine, original condition. It was sold once to the owner of a garage and remained in France it is believed, until the late 1970s. It was in the early 1990s that this beautiful Miura S again came to the attention of Sig. Valentino Balboni as the owner decided to part with it. Balboni recommended the Miura to another noted Lamborghini collector, Carlo Mauri, who purchased it in 1997 and Sig Balboni suggested the car be cared for by the once technical director of Lamborghini, Orazio Salvoni. In the late 1990's, Salvoni owned a workshop for high-level automobiles, Top Motors. During this time, the engine was rebuilt and carefully tuned by skilled and experienced hands. During his recent visit to review '4377', Sig Balboni stated that if anybody wants to restore a Miura S then this car is the example to compare all Miura S to, for its outstanding originality. he states that 95% of this Miura S is original. He remembers the car fondly since it was first delivered from the factory. Here is a unique opportunity to be able to purchase what is believed to be the most correct and original Miura S in the world today.
