News Lamborghini Miura SVR restored by Polo Storico

Lamborghini Miura SVR restored by Polo Storico

The Lamborghini Miura will forever be revered as one of the greatest and possibly the first ever supercar in the history of the automobile. Between 1966 and 1972, 763 of these splendid cars were built and over the decades, anyone who’s someone has or owns one. Think Jamiroquai, Jay Leno, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, but more famous to car lovers than all these celebrities is the one and only Miura SVR.

This car has a well-documented history where it began as an S in late 1968. It spent many years in Italy to then be bought by German who promptly sent it back to Sant’Agata in order to have it transformed into an SVR. The car was eventually sold to a Japanese man who brought it home.

Why I’m so excited about this is that I’ve seen the car with my own eyes. In 2015, I was in Japan and waltzed into a high-end car dealer called Bingo Sports and lo and behold, there it was right in front of me. This was the Miura with chassis number #3781, the exact same one that’s been fully restored. I returned to Bingo Sport last fall only to discover that the car was gone. Now I know where it was.

I almost feel as though I’m now part of Lamborghini history…
