The Lamborghini Miura was the flagship car of the prestigious Italian automaker and less than 800 units were built. The Lamborghini Miura SV (Super Veloce), chassis #4846, was first shown on Bertone’s stand at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show as the pre-production model for subsequent Miura SV production. It was recently restored to its perfect original state by Lamborghini PoloStorico and was unveiled at the Concours d’Elegance event in the Amelia Island last month as a celebration of the series’ fiftieth anniversary.
The restoration of the legendary SV was led by Enrico Maffeo, Head of PoloStorico. This one-off project took the experts a year to finish a complete restrip of the chassis and engine. Thanks to archived documentations and photos, every panel has been returned to its original line and angle. The iconic metallic green Verde Metallizata was perfectly repainted in its original colour, the tan leather interior was fully refurbished and the engine was overhauled. Every single detail is either restored or replaced following the original design. The restoration of this 1971 Geneva show car is definitely a perfect tribute to Lamborghini Miura.
