As a very late production “S,” it was equipped with the most desirable features of ventilated disc brakes and a thicker, strengthened chassis frame, similar to that installed on the later “ultimate” SV. Importantly, it was also equipped with factory air conditioning, which is always a welcome feature on summer days. According to the documentation on file, the car was imported to the United States in 1984. Until recently, it had remained “under the radar” while in the small, reclusive private collection of a New Jersey enthusiast, who, according to the earliest title, registration slips, and paperwork on file, had owned it since at least 1988. According to the present owner, the car had last been used in 1996, after which it remained, alongside three or four Ferraris, in the same East Coast garage until the owner acquired it. The owner contacted West Coast Lamborghini specialist Gary Bobileff, who, according to the owner, was sent photographs of the car’s chassis plate, chassis stamping, and body stampings, all of which confirmed the car to be very original and in good, genuine order. It is believed that the color change to the present Nero over Champagne interior was undertaken before the car departed to Italy in the early 1980s. The owner notes that a recent compression test shows the compression of all cylinders is between 140 and 150, the oil pressure is good, and the synchromesh is good, except for the synchros in second gear, which are slightly weak. The Miura runs and drives fine otherwise, with the owner noting slight smoke only on the initial start and none while driving. “We’ve really just dusted it off,” the owner recounts, “being very careful around the engine bay to leave the original paint on the engine and chassis.” This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a just-found Miura that is fresh for additional recommisioning and ripe for driving enjoyment.
