Lamborghini Miura P400
1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 finished in the classic combination of Verde over Nero; fresh from the finest of restorations in the cars original colour.
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 car we are incredibly proud to offer is an early P400 Miura delivered in September 1967 and original finished in Verde, the same colour it sits today, as confirmed by a letter from the factory.
The car has recently enjoyed a full restoration and as such sits in the most magnificent condition, both in terms of meticulous paintwork, beautifully preserved hide and exceptional mechanical presentation and performance.
With just over 750 Miuras built in the duration of the production, they remain to this day not only an incredibly important car in the history of the supercar, but also one that it is both coveted and exclusive. This is one of the finest P400s available on the market; a magnificent example of one of the most beautiful and striking supercars ever produced.
