A Lamborghini Miura P400 Spinto Veloce from 1972 auctioning by Sotheby’s
Today it the best restored car in the world, the Lamborghini Miura SV that will be auctioned the next 10th of December. An exceptional auction for supercars lovers. Recently restored the body, the engine and the drivetrain are originals, a rare opportunity.
One of the first supercars
The Lamborghini Miura Spinto Veloce’s chassis was displayed in Geneva in 1966. It represented all the youthful and passionate spirit at that time, transcribes in the most beautiful body ever designed.
With its V12 engine she was then a poster child for an entire generation and was seen in famous garages such as the garage of Frank Sinatra or Miles Davis. The car’s design is extremely precise in every detail, as the door’s sensuously curved shape and its pop-up headlights that seem to flood out the driver’s compartment. It is the same exclusive design that gave birth to the word “supercar” speaking of the Lamborghini Miura SV.
Its muscular and sensual shape evolved over the years to become the most advanced car: the Spinto Veloce. Revised suspensions helped to remove the “front-end lightness”, specific of the previous models and the body was enlarged which offered to the car a more aggressive position. But the most remarkable evolution concerns the engine and its larger carburettors that make the car handier at lower speeds. The engine produces a 385 brake horsepower, incredible performances for a Spinto Veloce that can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 180 mph.
An exceptional restoration
This Lamborghini Miura SV chassis n°5014 was first delivered in 1972 to a young women named Anna Germani. This production was long-awaited and then it travelled to Japan where the car stayed for a while in an official Japanese McLaren workshop in Osaka, before coming into the possession of its current owner.
Its original colour was found with the discovery of original paint in the front lid, as for the origins of the vehicles, it is marked by the body number, 807 that appear on every single panels originally numbered by the Lamborghini factory.
Disassembled then assembled, the Lamborghini Miura SV was completely dismantled and restored by many renowned professionals before the Carrozzeria Sports Cars applies the paint in the original hue.
The chassis was checked and measured by the original Lamborghini supplier that provides a certificate attesting that the frame is perfectly straight as the original one. Finally, a Lamborghini mechanic who worked with the factory during 30 years made mechanical restorations!
A complete folder with invoices, certificates and photos is available coming with the Lamborghini Miura SV, that are certified by Lamborghini itself.
This wonder is a champion in every regards and with no doubt one of the finest vehicle actually available to auction, auction that begin at 2.200.000 dollars!
