Auction Block: 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV

The Lamborghini Miura is a historic vehicle that only seems to get better with age, and every year, a selection of beautiful models make their way to the auction block. The 1971 P400 SV Speciale you see here is one of only 150 — a transcendental platform owned and operated by prolific French industrialist Jacques Dembiermont.

While Lamborghini’s genre-defining Miura P400 SV is known as one of the world’s rarest vehicles, there are a select few who have accrued the title of historic importance. As one of Lamborghini’s first clients to secure an order for the Miura upon its debut in 1966, Jacques placed a strict emphasis on the supercar’s bespoke nature, recommending that the brand replace the 385-horsepower platform’s original components with dry-sump lubrication and a ZF limited-slip differential as an homage to Bob Wallace’s experimental Miura Jota. In 1971, the vehicle arrived at Dembiermont’s doorstep with a handsome Oro Metallizzato (Gold Metallic) finish, remaining in his care for just over a decade. After being relinquished to its second owner, the P400 SV received a complete restoration from both Carrozzeria Autosport and Top Motors before heading back onto the streets of the UK, even going so far as to participate in the Tour Auto. Now, the Miura P400 SV Speciale is slated for auction at an estimated $2,096,600 or more.
