For starters, only 150 examples of the P400 SV were made. Between the years 1971 and 1973, Lamborghini was working on the ground-breaking Miura supercar, which would become the world’s first mid-engine supercar. Only a few customer requests were filled during this time, including a request from wealthy French industrialist Jacques Dembiermont, who became one of the first customers of the marque when Lamborghini debuted the Miura in 1966. As soon as Dembiermont learned that an updated SV version was being made, he placed an order. But he had a few stipulations. Lamborghini put together the Miura P400 SV Speciale with two important mechanical attributes that were shared with Bob Wallace’s experimental Miura Jota, namely a dry sump lubrication and a ZF limited-slip differential. The Miura featured a five-speed manual transaxle transmission mated to a 4-liter V12 that produces 385 horsepower. It has a four-wheel independent wishbone suspension with coil springs, tubular shock absorbers, and anti-roll bars. The car was completed in May 1971. Done in Oro Metallizzato (Gold Metallic), the SV became a prized possession for Dembiermont.

For over a decade, Dembiermont held onto the SV before selling it. The car went through the hands of a few owners in the South of France, Norway, and England, before it was sold to its current owner. The current owner commissioned Carrozzeria Autosport and Top Motors to completely restore the Miura. After the restoration, the car has been used to tour Europe and has been a part of the Tour Auto. With that kind of history, and with its one-of-a-kind work, it’s no wonder that this car would be valued at £2 million.
