Lamborghini Miura, only three units were manufactured and one of them was put on sale


 

One of only three 1972 Lamborghini Miura SVJs ever made was put up for sale. It is a real gem for collectors, who will hardly ever have the chance to make it like it again. The story goes that the life of the Miura SVJ began in 1970. That year, a Lamborghini test driver named Bob Wallace was encouraged to develop a special variant of the Miura SV with the aim of offering an option with a sportier and better configuration. circuit performance.


A single prototype was built, built from scratch with new parts and different headlights, a free-flow exhaust system, a modified V12 (twelve-cylinder in V position) engine, and an interior with fewer elements. The prototype was sold to a VIP client, Dr. Alfredo Belipos, but unfortunately, it was destroyed in a traffic accident while traveling at high speed just before delivery.


There was quite a bit of interest in the Miura SVJ during the following years, so much so that the Lamborghini factory agreed to build three models at their Italian factory and at the same time convert some existing SV models to SVJs. This SVJ is one of three Lamborghini built like new from scratch and has the 5090 chassis.


It is known as "El Corso" and was built for a French property developer. At one point, it was repainted silver-gray, but has since been returned to the original Rosso Granada and underwent a three-year restoration that was completed in 2012. It has just 19,582 km (12,167 miles) on the watch and is considered to be the Holy Grail of Lamborghini.


The sale is in charge of the Kidston firm, which bought it in 2010 and commissioned a three-year restoration that was in the hands of Luca Salvioli and Pietro Cremonini, two former engineers of the Sant'Agata automotive company.


The Lamborghini Miura is one of the most iconic models of the Italian brand, if not the most. It was the first great success in its history, followed by the Countach, Diablo, and Murcielago. Of this model, only 764 units were manufactured, so the Miura by itself is a very exclusive vehicle and in demand by collectors.


Logically more exclusive is the factory Miura SVJ, so its price will surely be very high. The company that sells it did not disclose its value, but it is a fact that it will have several zeros.
