Auktionen: Sotheby’s, Genf 1998, Schätzpreis 110’000 bis 130’000 Franken , nicht verkauft; Artcurial, Paris 2013, verkauft für 459’668 Euro, mit folgendem Text: «This Lamborghini Miura P400, chassis number 3649, is equipped with engine S n°2211. It left the factory in Sant’Agata on 7 August 1968. Sold new in France, it arrived at the premises of Voitures Paris Monceau, 114 Rue Cardinet Paris 17e, on 16 September 1968. It was painted silver grey with mustard leather interior and electric windows. The car had been so successful since its launch at the Motor Show in October 1966 that by September 1968, the list of clients driving round in a Lamborghini Miura included Johnny Hallyday, the singer Christophe, the journalist Philippe Bouvard, Jacques Dutronc, the businessman Fred Lip and other Parisian luminaries. With a devastating performance and stunning looks, the Lamborghini’s new creation sold very well. The importer Voiture Paris Monceau registered 3649 in the company name, and the car was given the registration 4600 VA 75 on 25 September 1968. For the next 12 months, it was used to take selected clients on test-drives and demonstration runs. On 19 September 1969 it was sold to its first owner, an enthusiast for Italian cars who lived in the Essonne department, who registered the car 972 LR91. He kept it until the 1980s, and we then find the Miura in the hands of its second owner, registered 400 UE 57 in Mulhouse in 1987. In 1994, the car was put up for sale with the Ferrari dealer in Mulhouse, liveried in green with original mustard interior. On 3 April 1998 the dealer sold it to the current owner, the ex-president of Club Lamborghini France. He entrusted the car to the expert hands of renowned mechanic and marque specialist Toni Sisinni, who completely rebuilt the engine and the transmission in 2003. A frequent and regular driver, the owner ensures his cars are mechanically perfect and totally reliable. Therefore the oil has been changed every 5000km. In addition, the brakes (discs and pads) have been changed, the suspension recently overhauled and the alternator belt, fragile on this model, has been changed regularly as a precaution. All the bills will be passed on to the next owner. The SV wheels and tyres were replaced a few months ago. Here is an iconic car that is climbing in value. Not only a feast for the eyes and a pleasure to drive, it is also a very sound investment. Moreover, this Miura has a special history, as the demonstration car for the Parisian dealer Paris Monceau, with no end of personalities having climbed on board! Since that time, the car has been maintained to be driven, from weekends away in Relais-Châteaux to participation in rallies, offering a performance that comes with a 12-cylinder concerto!» Dann wieder Artcurial, Le Mans 2018, verkauft für 834’000 Euro, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «This Lamborghini Miura P400, chassis number 3649, is equipped with engine S n°2211.

On 19 September 1969 it was sold to its first owner, an enthusiast for Italian cars who lived in the Essonne department, who registered the car 972 LR91. On 25 May 1971, it was acquired by its second owner, a hairdresser based in Martigues, near Marseille. He bought the car on credit, and when he destroyed the engine, he didn’t have the financial means to have it replaced. He stopped making repayments and the bank seized the car and sold it at auction. Monsieur Muscinesi, a well-known figure in Marseille at that time, bought the non-driving Miura in the name of his company Muscinesi (a copy of the extract from the prefecture of Marseille is included in the file). He sold it shortly afterwards to a mechanic working in the old port in Marseille, who owned a 400 S that he had written off in a hillclimb. He put the engine from his 400 S into the Miura along with certain other elements including the electric windows and big brakes. The car then sold to a certain Marc Harchier followed by two other owners in France, and was registered in Mulhouse, in 1987, with the number 400 UE57. In 1994, the Miura was found for sale with the Ferrari dealer in Mulhouse, painted green with its original mustard interior. On 3 April 1998, the dealer sold the car to the previous owner, the ex-President of Club Lamborghini France. He entrusted the Miura to the expert care of marque specialist and renowned mechanic Toni Sisinni, who completely rebuilt the engine, gearbox and axle in 2003. The previous owner drove long distances regularly and wanted a car than was mechanically perfect and totally reliable. The oil has been changed every 5000 km. The brakes (discs and pads) were changed and the suspension refurbished in 2013, and the alternator belt, fragile on this model, has been changed regularly as a precaution. All the invoices will be passed on to the new owner. In October 2013 the car sold at an Artcurial auction to the current Parisian owner, an enthusiast for GT and supercars from the 1970s and 1980s. He has driven it regularly in various rallies and is now selling the Miura, having had the engine entirely rebuilt and other major work carried out, by Toni Sisinni, for a sum of around 75 000€ (copies of invoices will be made available to interested buyers on request). Today, the car is presented in flawless condition. We satisfied ourselves of this in a recent test-drive and are assured by its provenance. We are very familiar with the cars belonging to the vendor and the high standards he has for all of them. It will be delivered with a history file and numerous invoices.»
