1971 Lamborghini Miura SV
Take a look at this fully restored Lamborghini Miura SV, which was first unveiled during the Geneva Motor Show in 1971. This thing of beauty is Lambo’s first ever fully restored Miura SV and coincidentally marks the 50th anniversary of the Miura!
This particular Miura (chassis #4846) has been the subject of a year-long restoration by Lamborghini PoloStorico department – a name which translates as ‘Classic Hub.’ Rather than restore it with parts from later production SVs, the restoration used nearly all original 1971 parts.
The restoration included a complete restrip of the chassis and engine, while photos and archived documents were used as a reference to ensure every single body panel was returned to its original state.
This 1971 Miura features a meticulously researched and completely refurbished interior, complete with tan leather seating and dashboard, and even the body paint has been kept in check with the use of the original metallic green Verde Metallizata.
The Lamborghini PoloStorico division was created with the purpose of restoring old Lambo icons, while introducing new elements to modernise the original makeup. Even though it’s only their first project, we reckon ‘PoSto’ (as it’s sometimes referred to) might have trouble topping the 1971 Muira SV. Just look at it!
The 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV restoration was revealed last week in celebration of Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance show. Unfortunately for us, we very much doubt they’d be willing to sell it!
