    I believe it is a factory supplied replacement unit.

    Also I think one of us would have seen a photo of it before now if it is an actual car as it would have been made many years ago. No one would do this to a Miura recently because of their value

    A great buy!!! Will those 10" wheels clear the wheel wells?

    Shouldn't the rocker panels be gold or silver?

    I did see a Urus in Key West, in this Color, (or similar,the car in the picture might be a paint to sample) does not appear to be a really large car,but looking at this picture, its amazing the difference.

    I once sold that Miura for less than @ $300k, I think that was @12 or 13 years ago, it really should have brought more, I'm not sure there was a pool of committed Miura buyers present.

    As expected, this hot-rod is likely headed back to Polo Storico where it'll become a standard SV in lime green again 400,000 Euros and 2 years later

    Indeed I think P400 & P400S will actually increase in value whereas SVs have pulled back somewhat so the value delta is smaller.

    I think it'll go back to 9"s in the rear.

    These Miuras both had issues, one more than the other. Both had color changes, collision work, substandard “restoration” work. Especially the “SV”...oh boy...caveat emptor. In my opinion, the prices accurately reflected this...obviously there were astute bidders.

    Totally agree, this SV is best described as a customized hot-rod.

    It’s a good deal but not every one is fine with having around $2MM in the car once it’s restored having an non-original motor.

    Wasn't it a new engine that had not previously been in another car?

    If it will be restored by Polo Storico, it would be interesting to check the engine number after...
