Lamborghini Showcased One of Only Four Miura SVJ at Rétromobile

Lamborghini’s classic car department, Lamborghini Polo Storico, showcased a very rare Miura SVJ at the 2020 Rétromobile show in Paris.

  • Lamborghini displayed a Miura SVJ at Rétromobile;
  • It was completely restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico;
  • Next to it was a Miura P400 S built from spare parts.

Last weekend was the 2020 Rétromobile classic car show at the Parc des expositions de la Porte de Versailles in Paris. We talked about the new program Bugatti launched at the show but now let’s talk about Lamborghini.

This year, Lamborghini Polo Storico displayed in their booth a Lamborghini Miura SVJ. This car, chassis number 4860, is one of only four original SVJs made by Lamborghini.

Bugatti Launches “La Maison Pur Sang” Restoration Program

Only built upon request, the Lamborghini Miura SVJ was inspired by the Miura Jota. The latter model was created as a one-off by test driver Bob Wallace “with the goal of enabling the Miura to compete in races regulated by the FIA’s “Appendix J” for Touring Cars and GT Cars” says the Italian manufacturer.

German racing driver Hubert Hahne requested the Miura SVJ showcased at the Rétromobile show. Built in 1973 it featured a black coat with a white-black leather interior. Four years later, in 1977, Hahne asked Lamborghini to repaint the car silver. The colour combination has stayed the same ever since.

For conservation purposes, Lamborghini Polo Storico restored the Miura SVJ to make sure “its original conditions could be peerlessly preserved and restored.”

Alongside the very rare Lamborghini Miura SVJ was a Miura P400 S built from spare parts. As you can see from the pictures below, it was quite a sight!
