1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale - £3.2m

This 1971 P400 SV Speciale crossed the block at Gooding & Company’s Passion of a Lifetime auction. It is one of only 150 P400 SVs ever produced, and one of 764 Miuras in total. But this is also a speciale with extras like dry sump lubrication and a ZF limited-slip differential.

The bespoke Miura was finished in Oro Metallizzato. (metallic gold)
The Miura's mid-engine, two-seat layout combined high performance and expert craftsmanship in a single dynamic package. The Italian automaker produced the vehicle until 1973. Towards the end of the car’s production run, the marque put out a refined version: the P400 SV. The Miura Speciale’s alloy V12 delivered 385hp at 7,850 rpm.
