This 1969 Lamborghini Miura S was completed on 23 October 1969 as production number 423. Following production, the car was shipped to Mizwa Motors, the authorised Lamborghini dealership in Japan and sold to its first owner, located in Yokohama. From there, the car remained in Japan for the next 30 years, passing through three subsequent owners in the cities of Kobe, Chiba, and Fukuoka. In the 1980s, the original S-specification engine was removed and the Miura was fitted with a genuine Miura SV engine, bearing number 30633, which was the first SV engine produced. In 1998 the car was purchased from the previous owner in Fukuoka, Japan, who had owned it for 10 years.
The conversion to Jota specification was completed in early 2013 by specialists located in Japan. Whilst the car was being converted to Jota specifications, all components were fully restored, ensuring that the Miura will function as it would when new in every respect (invoices for this work which total over £365,000 will be supplied with the car).
Had the original Jota not met its end in 1972, there is no doubt that it would be one of the most desirable automobiles in the world, as it took the most radical automobile the world had ever seen and raised the bar of performance one step higher. The Jota, in its pursuit of greater performance, combined the best aspects of the original Miura design with more aggressive cosmetic and mechanical enhancements, to make the most intense Miura that ever left Sant’Agata. This converted Jota-specification Miura provides an excellent chance for a lucky enthusiast to relive the experience that the original Jota provided—an experience that is no longer available in its original form. For the enthusiast looking to have a Miura that stands out from the rest, look no further. Lamborghini Miura "S" that has been upgraded to Jota specification.
