1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV by Bertone - $3.5m

One of 150 SV examples built. Retains numbers-matching chassis, engine, and body. Equipped with air conditioning and split-sump lubrication system. Blu Notte over gray. The Miura P400 was a revolutionary sports car, from its transversely positioned mid/rear-mounted V-12 engine, to the stunning coachwork designed by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini. The Miura underwent a final development in 1971. The Miura P400 SV (Spinto Veloce) is the most advanced variant.
The P400 SV was built in a modest quantity of 150 examples, making it the rarest of the three Miura variants. It remains hugely prized by discerning collectors.
The Lamborghini V-12 was tuned to develop 385 horsepower.
The car made $3.5m at RM Sotheby's.
