Blossoming with age, the exotic and historical 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale graces the auction blocks of Gooding and Company for an estimated USD$2,083,272. As one of only 150 models ever produced, this Miura was purchased new by the French industrialist, Jacques Dembiermont, who maintained the car for over a decade.
Conceived in secret by the Lamborghini engineering team in 1966, the Miura was deemed the world’s first mid-engine supercar. Its cutting-edge and innovative technology included a racing-style dry-sump oil system, ZF limited-slip differential, and a sublime 385 horsepower 4-liter V12.
Initially manufactured in May 1971, this Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale was refurbished and restored by leading marque specialists, Carrozzeria Autosport and Top Motors, in its original and immaculate Oro Metallizzato (Gold Metallic) coat.
With a history of competing across the United Kingdom and in the Tour Auto, the bespoke 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale is an iconic transcendental platform, carrying unparalleled mechanical specifications, outstanding documentation, and strong ties to the infamous Jota.
