1967 Lamborghini Miura SV Specification: 11 Jan 2019 For Sale by Auction

ESTIMATE NO RESERVE Interclassics Maastricht LOT DETAILS Lot Number 241 Chassis Number TBA Year 1967 Make Lamborghini Model Miura SV Specification DESCRIPTION The first "supercar" from Lamborghini, and perhaps the first supercar the world had ever seen, was the P400 Miura. When it was first unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Salon, its impact was nothing short of extraordinary. Simply stated, the Miura looked like no other on the road, and it marked a paradigm shift in the design of high-performance cars. Its sensuous lines were undoubtedly indebted to the placement of its engine, which was mounted transversely, just behind the passenger compartment. The Miura's performance also matched its looks, and the car would go on to be the poster child for a petrol-fueled generation. As such, Miuras could often be found in the garages of many of the most fashionable celebrities of the day, including Miles Davis, Rod Stewart, and Frank Sinatra. Marcello Gandini penned the gorgeous design at the age of 27, and it encapsulated the youthful spirit of the age. The car was beautifully styled throughout and had intricate details that always brought a smile to the driver's face when interacting with the car, such as the shape of the doors, which were supposedly modeled off of the horns of a raging bull. To many, it boasted the perfect automotive silhouette, as it was just as sensual as it was muscular. The final iteration of the Miura, the SV, featured numerous improvements over the already spectacular P400 S that came before it. The SV featured better handling, thanks to revised suspension, which helped to remove the "front-end lightness" that was so characteristic of the earlier cars; in turn, the rear bodywork was made slightly wider. Perhaps the most notable changes were to the engine, which featured larger carburetors and different cam-timing, as they made the SV much more user-friendly at lower rpms. With its engine producing 385bhp, the SV boasted incredible performance. A sprint to 60mph from a standstill took just 5.8 seconds and its top speed was quoted at 180mph. This beautiful example, an early production model, was despatched new in P400 specification to Oporto, Portugal on 14th September 1967, and sold via the Lamborghini dealer Vecar. After one year ownership it passed to the second keeper, who owned the car for a further 7 years until 1975. In 1974, shortly after the ultimate 'SV' model had been launched, our Miura was returned to Lamborghini's Sant'Agata factory to become one of very few examples upgraded to full 'SV' specification by the works in period. The work included rebuilding the motor, the front and rear chassis sections, brake systems (including brake cooling ducts) and suspension to 'SV' specification. Nine-inch wide rear wheels were mounted under a wider 'SV' rear body (stamped with nº 750 which was originally fitted to SV5100, the donor to the 'SVJ' produced at the factory for a Mr. Lansberg). Upon completion the Miura was sold within the family before being acquired by the next owner in the mid 1980s, who kept the car for a further 26 years. In 2008 chassis '3132' enjoyed a highly comprehensive restoration, after which it was enjoyed on the road for a further four years before being sold by Coys at auction at our London True Greats Sale in 2012. In current ownership our vendor has prepared this beautiful Miura meticulously, with invoices from a marque specialist exceeding €50,000 to support various mechanical works. The Miura is supplied with its original Portuguese Livrete, correspondence and invoices from Lamborghini confirming all works carried out at Santa'Agata in 1974, further invoices for recent refurbishment and maintenance works, a letter of conformity and UK V5C document. Refinished extremely well in Arancio Orange, this is a beautiful example of one of the ultimate versions of Lamborghini's groundbreaking supercars.
