This spectacular example of the original supercar will be put under the hammer next week.
Once the fastest production vehicle in the world, only 150 examples of the Miura SV boasting a V12 3.90-liter 385hp engine were ever made. Debuting in Geneva in 1971, the specs of the original supercar are as impressive today as 40 years ago, with a lightweight frame, all-independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Marrying a jaw-dropping design with race-inspired technical innovation, this rare Lamborghini, capable of 180mph, will be auctioned next week in London and is expected to fetch up to £900,000.
The example being offered remains in highly original and correctly-maintained condition and boasts an array of highly desirable original specifications such as factory-fitted a/c and radio, original Rosso Corsa exterior finish and rare cloth upholstery and Alcantara dash. With a rebuilt V-12 'SV'-spec engine that has just 100 miles on the clock, there is every chance this unique specimen will go for seven figures as cars like this come around just once in a lifetime.
