Miura, the original supercar

Discussion in 'Lamborghini Supercars' started by joe sackey, Dec 5, 2006.

  1. For those interested in, this Miura SV is #4852.
    And concerning the ''P500'' script at its rear, I've no idea at all of the story...

  6. Does anyone know if the book is publicly available as yet? I registered my interest and got a very polite message back a couple
    of months back saying I’d get a payment link, but I still haven’t seen it (the link that is nor therefore the book ). Thanks.

  8. A new worldwide record for a Miura P400, this is #3645 sold for $2,300,000 at hammer, last lot of the Silverstone auction at Riyad, probably the best place to sell a car...

  9. Rightly so as the early original variant of the Miura is finally being respected.

    Just in time for the ex-Briggs Cunningham P400 3249 which is coming to the market soon, stay tuned.

  10. For those wondering who Briggs Cunningham is:

    https://www.motortrend.com/news/all-american-hero-why-you-need-to-know-about-briggs-cunningham/

    Besides the Le Mans participation, he skippered his yacht Columbia to victory in the 1958 America's Cup race.

    An American Sportsman, he took delivery of his brand new 3249 via Bob Estes Lamborghini in Los Angeles and kept it at his California-based museum for many years.

  18. It is with some emotion that I'm adding another Miura P400 to my hunting board...

    But Miura P400 # 3474 was part of my close environment...

    Antoine and his children - my friends have always supported me when I created the Lamborghini Club Belgium back in 2007.
    With their beautiful Miura, they took part in at least half of the events that I organized in 12 years.
    I will always keep a memorable drive test, such strong engine gave an unparalleled punch...

    Yes you can point it is not original like todays new collectors' standard, but it was restored 25 years ago to be driven, to be reliable and to give full sensations...

    How many Miura can boast to have been hard driven at Spa Francorchamps track ?

    These are real goodbyes because # 3474 is going to Japan, we won't see any more ... Ciao la Belle Giallo

  23. Being a RHD Miura limits the market for it significantly.

    They are probably diligently searching for the correct parts.

  25. But supply of a RHD Miura is also limited.
     
  26. True, but even in the UK, there are clients who want LHD car so they can use it on the continent, or, mindful that they may not keep it forever, wish to own a car that can be used globally should they come to sell.
