Lamborghini Painstakingly Restores Two Of Its Most Legendary Supercars

Classic Cars

It took ten months to restore the Miura back to its former glory.

If you happen to be wandering around the Salon Retromobile classic car show in Paris this month, be sure to pay Lamborghini’s stand a visit. On display at the event are two of the Italian automaker’s most iconic supercars, meticulously restored to their former glory by Lamborghini’s Polo Storico heritage division. First up is a stunning 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400, the result of a comprehensive ten-month restoration project.

Using original production documents, the specialists at Polo Storico have painted the Miura in its original Verde Scandal finish, and restored the chassis, electrical, braking and cooling systems. The interior has also been rebuilt along with the dashboard, which has been restored back to its authentic Testa di Moro (i.e. brown) color. Work on restoring the magnificent Miura began way back in November 2016 and was completed in August 2017, when the car went on to win first prize in the Miura P400 class at the first Lamborghini & Design Concorso d'Eleganza held in Neuchatel, Switzerland, last September.

Alongside the Miura is a 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400, which is currently undergoing a complete restoration so the car on display is still a work-in-progress. Every part of the vehicle has been disassembled and overhauled including the matching-numbers engine. Polo Storico is repainting the car in its original yellow color and is currently sourcing original spare parts for it to ensure authenticity. Its Tabacco-colored interior is also being refurbished. Also on display at the Salon Retromobile show is Lamborghini’s 4.0 liter V12 engine head project.

Following customer requests, Polo Storico is currently reproducing Lamborghini V12 4.0 liter engine heads to provide historically-accurate spare parts for owners by studying some of its original V12s and referencing design drawings dating back to 1965. The Miura and Countach are just two of several cars being restored by the division, including an LM002, Espada, Jarama, Islero and Diablo.
