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. The example we have for sale was the 342nd car to leave the production line, making it an 'S' cariant from factory as only 275 standard cars were produced. This matching numbers Miura hadthe ultra-desirable air conditioning fitted from factory and was featured in the film 'Road Hard'. The car sits in a rich Arancio over Black and features Gold Wheels and side skirts. Rarely does an example of this calibre come up for sale, not an opportunity to be missed!

  • Auction: 8th Dec 2018 - RM Sotheby's - The Petersen Automotive Museum Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' The Petersen Automotive Museum Auction event, 8 December 2018. The only Miura SV originally finished in Bleu MedioOne of five single-sump SVs sold new to the U.S. and equipped with air conditioningBeautiful, correct cosmetic restoration to original specificationsExhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours dEleganceOne of the most attractive examples of the original supercar Please note that this lot is titled as a 1972. Before the introduction of the Lamborghini Miura at the 1966 Geneva Salon, the term supercar simply did not exist. The Miura heralded the beginning of a new age in automotive history, and visually, it looked like nothing else on the road. The designer, Marcello Gandini, was just 27 years old when he penned its stunning design for Bertone, and his work encapsulated the youthful spirit of the age and the power lying behind the bodywork.The Miuras design was indebted to its engine placement, with the V-12 mounted transversely directly behind thepassenger compartment. Not only did this allow for a highly attractive silhouette, but it also gave the Miura incredible balance and weight distribution. Like many supercars that have followed in its footsteps, the Miura evolved over time, and the last iteration, the P400 SV, was the most developed and potent. The suspension was also revised slightly to help reduce the front-end lightness that characterized the handling of earlier cars, and the rear bodywork was widened for a more aggressive stance. The engine was also addressed, and the SV was fitted with larger carburetors and featured different cam timing, helping to make the SV more user-friendly at lower RPMs.Needless to say, performance remained incredible, and the SV could outrun just about everything on the road when new. Producing a total of 385 hp, the SV could sprint from 060 mph in just 5.8 seconds. On a wide-open stretch of road, the Miura could reach a top speed of 180 mph.Completed on 29 October 1971, this P400 SV, chassis no. 4912,was originally finished in Bleu Medio over a Pelle Bleu interior and was shipped new to the U.S. through Modena Car U.S.A. Notably, it was the only Miura SV to be finished in that color according to Joe Sackeys definitive tome, The Lamborghini Miura Bible. Furthermore, it is one of 11 single-sump Miura SVs to be fitted from new by the factory with optional air conditioning and one of just five examples equipped as such delivered stateside. Chassis 4912 resided in Texas as of 1977 under the ownership of Pedro A. Rubio but had left his ownership by 1979. It is believed that the car remained in the U.S. until at least 1992. At that time, the car was imported from the U.S. to Japan by the Tokyo Pipe Co. Ltd.The car remained in Japan for the next 20 years, and during this time, it remained largely in static storage. By 2011, it was sold to a Mr. Yamaguchi of Tokyo, then returned back to the U.S. It has since been the recipient of a full cosmetic restoration to original colors by Bodie Stroud, andmechanical work was done by the owners personal shop that services many street and race cars. During this time, the engine was reported to have strong compression, so only top end work was carried out. All electronics were looked after, and even a correct SV steering column was sourced. Since completion, it has been shown at the Pebble Beach Concours dElegance, the San Marino Motor Classic, and the Fathers Day show on Rodeo Drive. When shown, it was only for display and not judged.Without the Miura, it can be argued that Lamborghini might not even exist as a company today. Its importance to the automotive world simply cannot be overstated. Chassis no. 4912 is an excellent drivers Miura and would surely put a smile on the faces of any driver and passenger at speed. Furthermore, considering its incredible original specification and superb concours restoration, it is sure to attract even more attention and awards wherever it is shown and admired. It is without a doubt one of the finest SVs availableglistening in its original Bleu Medio with stunning gold wheels.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/ca18.
