Comments:

We are proud to offer this Lamborghini Miura P 400 Series II which has been

produced in the Lamborghini factory in mid 1970 and registered to its first

Swiss owner on the 18th of May 1971. It was ordered by its first owner Carmine

Mariangelo living in Lausanne in the more elegant colour scheme of argento with

black seats with textile inserts.


The second owner Roger Poinsot living nearby in Geneva fall in love with the

Miura P 400 S only five years later when he registered the car on the 17th of

May 1976.


It changed hands for the last time before we have been able to purchase this

Lamborghini icon on the 6th of March 1981 again to a Swiss citizen living in the

north east part of the country. The last owner had it for no less than 34 years

and decided to sell it last year. The car was part of a major classic car collection.

It has been serviced nearly each year at the Swiiss based Lamborghini

dealerships. The mileage today shows 66 895 km which is documented by its

large history file full of Lamborghini service records going back to the late

seventies.


It might be more than difficult to find a true three owner from new Lamborghini

Miura P 400 S which has been always perfectly maintained.


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

last edition known as the Miura SV. The latest edition of the Miura S called

Series II started with the production number 501 and  showing some

very important technical improvements compared to the first Miura P 400 and as

well to the normal Miura S. The latest edition received already the much stiffer

frame, the inner vented disc brakes and an improved new setting for the

camshaft timing. This revised cam timing came to mean that the P 400 S is

considered to be the fastest of all Miuras at top speed.


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.
