Lamborghini Miura Hot Rod Has A Secret Price Tag

For Sale / 4 Comments

This stunning one-off Miura is looking for a new owner.

The Lamborghini Miura is one of the most beautiful supercars ever made. This, however, is no ordinary Miura. It's a very special one-off example inspired by the legendary Jota – and it's looking for a new owner.

It started life as an ordinary Miura P400 S finished in Blu Notte with Pelle Nera and was delivered to the Turin concessionaire for Lamborghini in 1969. After this, it swapped owners several times before being bought by Milanese businessman Walter Ronchi who once owned the legendary one-off Jota, Lamborghini engineer Bob Wallace's famous 'toy'.

Unfortunately, the Jota was destroyed in an accident in April 1971 after Ronchi sold it but before it was delivered to a new home. Ronchi wanted to build another one-off, so he and his business partner, Italian F1 fixer and former racing driver Franco Galli, enlisted the help of two former Sant'Agata workers to transform his Miura P400 S into a Jota-inspired Miura hot rod.

The result was the stunning 'Millechiodi,' (Italian for '1000 nails') named after its riveted construction akin to the factory SVJs and the Jota. Among its many modifications include a retuned engine, freer-flowing exhausts, a full-width front spoiler and Plexiglas-covered headlamps. It was also painted British Racing Green and trimmed in black leather.

After Ronchi parted ways with the one-off Miura, it was sold to several collectors. One of them had the car repainted red and had the engine rebuilt. Its current owner acquired the Millechiodi in 2015 and restored the car back to its former glory with its original paint, a rebuilt V12 with bigger pistons and valves, more radical camshafts and a Jota-like exhaust, which made it noticeably faster than the standard car.

This is surely one of the rarest and most desirable Lamborghini Miuras ever made. It could also be one of the most expensive. It's currently for sale at Swiss dealership Kidston SA via Classic Driver, but no price is listed. Don't be surprised if it fetches a seven-figure sum.
