1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Restoration

Those of us who know Lamborghini remember the Miura SV, first unveiled at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. And though the original model stole the limelight many years ago, it’s received a well-done restoration to make the vehicle as attractive as ever. This was made possible by Lambo’s PoloStorico department, a team created to restore old models while simultaneously introducing new technology to add a contemporary twist on the original makeup.

In this case, the Miura SV received a new “Verde Metallazata,” or metallic green, paint job giving it a subtle yet powerful look unlike any other model. The chassis and engine were also totally broken down and rebuilt. Don’t worry too much about digging deep into those pockets either as there’s only one of these around. It is privately owned, and will be on display this month at the Amelia Island Concours. The finished project is PoloStorico’s first full restoration. Let’s hope this is a harbinger of things to come from the Italians.
