Comments:

We are proud to offer the Lamborghini Miura P 400 which has been

produced in the Lamborghini factory in 1968. It was delivered to its first owner

through Voitures Monceau Paris on the 18.04.1968. It was ordered in the more

elegant colour scheme of argento with black seats.


It was the 174th built Miura P 400 carrying the engine number 1857 which is still

today sitting in the car.


There is a gap in history in its early days until it came to Denmark in 1986

where it was kept for a longer period. The large history file shows service records

going back into the eighties.


The car benefited from a complete restoration in the last few years. It received a

perfect new paint job having chosen a dark blue metallic contrasting to the new

upholstery in beige. The complete technique has been overhauled in one of the

known Lamborghini workshops in 2016 documented by an amount of records.


The latest compression test from March 2017 made in our workshop has brought

the best results possible to achieve. This was documented as well on a recent

test drive when we learned how fast a well done engine accelerates. On and on it

is amazing how fast an early Miura P 400 could be, it shows tremendous power

and as well wonderful handling thanks to the new suspension and overhauled

brake system.This car is really a fun to look at and especially to feel it on the

road - wonderful.


The history of its development shows different stages which ended up with the

last edition known as the Miura SV. The Miura P 400 was the first having had the

best weight thanks to its very light frame. The Lamborghini factory confirms that

not more than 275 cars have been produced from beginning of 1967 until nearly

end of 1968 when the new Miura P 400 S was launched.


The Miura was the new rival for Ferrari in the sportscar market in the late sixties

and early seventies. The chief engineer Gian Paolo Dallara had developed the

first mid engine sportscar for the road, showing the new technique and a

dramatic design which forced Enzo Ferrari to react years later with the

Ferrari 365 GT/4 BB.


The Miura will always be "the" main icon in the sportscar world.
