This Historic Miura P400 S Might Be The Most Expensive Ever

The Lamborghini Miura is one of the world’s most prolific vehicles, and, in many ways, it served to catapult the Italian automotive manufacturer into the limelight during one of the industry’s most memorable eras. But, as is the case with many iconic vehicles, there are a handful of variants that stand head and shoulders above the rest; the 1968 Miura P400 S Millechiodi is one of them.

The 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 S Millechiodi is a striking recreation of one of the most admired one-off platforms of all time — the Miura Jota. In the early years of the flagship’s production, then-chief-engineer Bob Wallace created the Jota as a prototypical variant, hoping that it would act as a catalyst for the brand’s admittance into motorsport via the FIA’s Appendix J specification during the era. To achieve this, Wallace modified the car’s original bodywork, replacing it with lightweight alloy panels, and enhanced the V-12’s standard engine capabilities by over 100-horsepower. After being sold to a private owner, it was subsequently destroyed in an untimely accident. Saddened by the vehicle’s fate, Walter Ronchi, who had owned the Jota prior to the crash, commissioned two former Lamborghini employees to rebuild the car in 1975. Thus, the Millechiodi was born — a near-exact replica of the one-off platform, outfitted with both mechanical and aesthetic components to replicate the once-revered classic. In 2015, the Millechiodi received a complete restoration, valued at $320,000; and now, the rarified platform is listed for sale via Switzerland’s Kidston SA.
