If you like a classic Lambo, you may want to check out this 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400. The marvelous machine is currently up for sale via RM Sotheby’s site. The rarity of this model and its excellent condition will undoubtedly make it worth big money.
There are only 764 units of the Lamborghini Miura ever produced by the Italian automaker, with 275 of them were the P400s, which were released even before the Miura itself was fully developed. So they were the very first units of the classic model.
This exact example was the 80th unit and has a chassis number of 3171. It also features a gauge frame that is thinner than cars released later. And it’s these lightweight units which are extremely sought-after among classic car collectors, says the listing.
The car left the factory floor in late 1967 and spent the first years of its life in France. Since then not many people know who owned this car. But it entered the UK in 1980s and was bought by someone from Birmingham in 1989. The new owner completely restored the car, giving it a repaint, reupholstered blue leather interior, gold Campagnolo alloys and gold sills.
Engine and transmission reconstruction job was done by Nicol Transmissions, the process of which included the addition of Lamborghini liners, forged pistons, and new valves. The auto repair shop also rebuilt the Weber carburetors, clutch, and brakes. In 2004, the P400 changed ownership again and underwent yet another restoration before being sold to a Spanish man in 2012, who then sold it again to the current owner in 2017.
