Miura P400 S “Millechiodi”, a car particularly cherished by Lamborghini Polo Storico because of its special history and because it bears the increasingly-coveted Certification of Historic Authentication: a recognition issued by Polo Storico for vehicles modified during their period of use with ascertained history and historical significance. This example, a 1969 Miura P400 S, chassis number 4302, left Sant’Agata Bolognese in November 1969, painted Blu Notte (dark blue). The car was restored in 2018 and certified by Lamborghini Polo Storico in 2020.
Following a series of Italian owners, in 1975 it became the property of Giovanni Sotgiu and Walter Ronchi, two important names in Lamborghini history because, in addition to their work at the “Lamborcar” dealership in Milan, they were the first owners of Bob Wallace’s Miura Jota. Precisely in the spirit of recreating the Jota, the two transform the 400 S, damaged in an accident, into something much more racer-like. After a huge investment their Miura, now painted in Verde Scuro (dark green), is ready. It used so many rivets to join the body panels that the name Millechiodi (a thousand nails), came naturally.
The Lamborghini Miura is a sports car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1966 and 1973. The car was the first supercar with a rear mid-engined two-seat layout, although the concept was first seen in a production road car with René Bonnet’s Matra Djet, introduced in 1964. When released, it was the fastest production road car. The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini’s engineering team, which designed the car in its spare time against the wishes of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who preferred powerful yet sedate grand touring cars over the race car-derived machines produced by local rival Ferrari.
The P400S Miura, also known as the Miura S, made its introduction at the Turin Motor Show in November 1968, where the original chassis had been introduced three years earlier. It was slightly revised from the P400, with the addition of power windows, bright chrome trim around external windows and headlights, new overhead inline console with new rocker switches, engine intake manifolds made 2 mm larger, different camshaft profiles, and notched trunk end panels. Engine changes were reportedly good for an additional 20 PS (15 kW; 20 hp). The P400S had 215/70VR15 Pirelli Cinturato CN12 tyres on the front and 225/70VR15 CN12 tyres on the rear.
