The Lamborghini Miura is a piece of automotive art desired by many, with or without its appearance in The Italian Job. Penned by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, the model was beautifully calculated inside out from the overall silhouette, the louvres at engine cover to its performance. Here we have a fine example of Miura P400 from Auxietre & Schmidt in extremely remarkable condition waiting for its next owner.
The iconic Miura P400 pictured here has the chassis number 3420 and engine number 1802. Delivered new to Switzerland, it was originally finished in Rosso Miura Acrilico with black leatherette interior when it left the factory on 28 March 1968. It was then imported to Germany and Japan, and in 1996 purchased by Californian-established entrepreneur Thierry De Mascureau, who brought the car back to its original colour. It took the first in class award at the 1997 Concorso Italiano inside the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and followed its owner to moved back to France a few years later. The current owner brought 3420 eight year ago and the car now clock 19832 km. With a clear service history from the last 25 years and an excellent condition, the new owner can sprint with it immediately.
