Lamborghini Miura With A Body Without Paint Will Be Auctioned Off

Auction house RM Sotheby’s has announced that it will bid for the classic 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S supercar on August 12, 2021.

In the description of the lot it is said that this is an instance with chassis numbered “4761” with a Bertone design. A distinctive feature of the two-door is the so-called “bare” body, devoid of paintwork.

The supercar put up for auction has a very curious history. Its first owner was a 19-year-old Iranian student studying at the University of California. The parents bought the girl’s car, but not at all so that she could drive it.

The fact is that sanctions were imposed on Iran in those years. Because of this, the girl’s parents could not just take and transfer money to her. They came up with a clever scheme, ordering an Italian supercar for their daughter in the specification for the American market.

Having received the car, the student had to sell it and then live on the proceeds. However, the girl decided to keep the car, and over the next two years she drove it until she got into a minor accident.

The supercar was hardly injured in that accident: only the area of ​​the right headlight was damaged. At the same time, American workshops were unable to carry out repairs due to the complex design and shape of the head optics.

Then the damaged Lamborghini Miura was placed in a warehouse until “better” times. At some point, the car was completely forgotten, and as a result, it stood in one of the garages in California for nearly 40 years.

Recently, a rare coupe was acquired by an admirer of the Italian brand. He immediately hired several experienced craftsmen who not only repaired the ill-fated headlight, but also completely restored the car.

Work on the 50-year-old car took eight months, during which the owner decided to get rid of the factory light gray paintwork and completely polish the body. The interior has retained the original navy blue leather trim.

The technical stuffing of the Lamborghini Miura P400 S has also been tidied up. Recall that the coupe is powered by a 4.0-liter V12 with 370 hp. The organizers of the auction expect to sell an Italian two-door car with a mileage of only 26,000 km at a price of 1.8 to 2.2 million dollars (from 131 to 160 million rubles at the current exchange rate).
