The Miura’s technical specifications remain impressive even today: a lightweight frame, a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and power provided by that well-proven, symphonic V12 engine, breathing deeply through four triple-choke Weber carburettors. Initially offered with 350 brake horsepower on tap, the Miura was capable of over 175 mph in the hands of the brave, which was more than a match for any other road going production car of the era.

Our car, chassis no. 4048, numero scocca (body number) 468, is one of those very desirable “S” variants. Completed on 22 April, 1969, it was the 368th car produced out of total Miura production of 765 cars, 338 of which were P400 S models.

The Lamborghini benefits from several SV upgrades to the suspension, wheels and SV specification ventilated front brakes. As a result, 4048 combines the desirable styling of the Miura S with the superior mechanical specifications of the later Miura SV.

Originally supplied by Italian based Lamborghini dealer Righetti. The car was restored in 1989 and was sold at auction for a world record price to a Hong Kong-based collector. The Miura remained in the collector’s UK museum, however, along with the other cars in his collection and, as such, was carefully stored and used only sparingly.

Following his purchase, the most recent owner commissioned marque specialists to completely rebuild the engine and gearbox, during which the pistons, liners and valves were replaced. The Miura has not covered any mileage since the work was completed. It should also be noted that 4048 was also inspected closely at time of works and they were able to confirm that although the restoration was completed some time ago, most all of the components are still as new.

Finished in rosso with a contrasting black and red leather interior, this extremely desirable Miura S remains “the godfather of all supercars” and “the most user-friendly of the breed,” as described by a recent edition of Classic & Sports Car magazine.
