It’s had a comprehensive restoration that took 12 years to complete.
Every classic car collector needs to have a Lamborghini Miura in their collection. Many people regard it as the most beautiful car ever made as well as the thanks to its mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Only 764 were made between 1966 and 1973, and out of those, 338 were in P400S spec. Also known as the Miura S, it benefited from a more powerful 370 hp engine and was outwardly distinguishable by its lower profile tires and chrome window surrounds.
This example listed for sale by is one of the rarer S models, and as you can see from the photos it’s in pristine condition. That’s because it underwent a comprehensive “nut and bolt restoration” to concours standard that took 12 years to complete, which makes it “one of the finest available today” according to the London-based dealer. This particular 1970 Miura S was originally delivered in France, where it resided for most of its life. It’s finished in ‘Arancio Miura,’ the same color as the Miura that featured in the opening scene of The Italian Job just to make it even more desirable. Under the hood is a 4.0 liter V12 engine that produces 370 hp, paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Given its rarity and immaculate condition, the dealer is asking for €1.6 million ($1,865,440) to take this iconic supercar home. Whether it’s worth that much is debatable, but it's still a rare opportunity for rich collectors to own one of the finest Lamborghini Miuras on the planet.
