Specification

 

The Lamborghini Miura can be credited with creating the supercar as we know it today; a car that so radically changed car design in the late 60s, that its influence can still be seen in the design of some of the modern hypercars we see currently released. 

The concept is believed to be the brainchild of seven young engineers at Sant'Agata, with the design credit going to Marcello Gandini at Bertone, who was just 27 at the time. The transversely-mounted mid-engine was something totally new at the time and this design genius can be seen in features such as the doors resembling bullhorns and those now iconic eye-lashes around the lights. 

The 4-litre V12 engine was also a thing of beauty and capable of performance unprecedented at the time, with 350 bhp through a 6 Weber Carb set-up and a top speed north of 175 mph. 

When the car arrived in the UK it benefitted from over £100,000 worth of preparations including an extensive engine rebuild (including carb rebuild, replacing valve guides & seats, and split sump to SV-Spec), a full gearbox rebuild, a bespoke aluminium radiator and uprated cooling fans, SV-spec wheels & Avon Tyres, ceramic coated exhaust manifolds, high torque starter motor, electronic ignition system, suspension work including new bushes as required followed by a full geometry check and adjustments.

Finally the car received an absolutely breath taking interior restoration at Lupi in Italy including new dash and carpets.

This car is easily one of the finest examples on the market today and is the perfect addition to any discerning collectors' roster.
