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. 

The car we're offering was built in 1968 and was delivered new to Sweden, where it spent most of it's life. The car has been owned by one individual for a number of years and is unbelievably well documented, with the history files alone weighing well over 5kg.

The files comprise of extensive Swedish service documentation, registration documents, newspaper clippings, insurance documents, correspondence with the International Lamborghini owners club and original user manual.

A real chance to own one of the most iconic sports cars ever built, a true turning point in automotive design
