The car was desirably equipped with the split-sump lubrication system common to later examples, and there is a strong chance that the currently fitted air-conditioning system was originally installed by the factory. While there is currently no corroborative documentary evidence, it is believed that this Lamborghini was originally distributed to the Rome-based dealer Carpanelli for sale to an Italian client named Cervini residing in Louisiana. After passing through collections in Idaho and Florida, the Miura was eventually sold in 1990 to Bill Young of Arizona, the owner of one of the most respected suppliers of parts for vintage Italian performance cars. The P400 SV was acquired in 2001 by the well-known dealer/film producer Randy Simon, and he soon commissioned a full refurbishment by the Bobileff Motorcar Company in San Diego, one of the foremost restorers of classic Lamborghinis. The four-year restoration reportedly addressed every mechanical and cosmetic aspect of the car, including a complete rebuild of the V-12 engine by Bob Wallace, the former racing driver and Lamborghini factory test driver/engineer. The exquisite coachwork was repainted in the lovely shade of Blu Notte (midnight blue), while the interior was retrimmed in light gray leather with complementary dark blue carpeting, combining to create a very handsome color scheme. Following completion of the work, the Miura was presented at several concours, winning its class at the 2005 Concorso Italiano and at the 2007 Los Angeles Concours d’Elegance, where it was also awarded Best in Show and Most Elegant. The SV was also exhibited at the 2007 La Bella Macchina d’Italia and won another class award at the Lamborghini Club of America’s National Meet in Monterey, California. Sold to the current owner in January 2011, the Lamborghini was treated to a host of measures through 2013 as indicated by invoices on file, including a rebuild of the transmission, carburetors, and master cylinder. The engine and carburetors were tuned, the wiring system was repaired, a Tubi Style exhaust was installed, and the air conditioning was charged. Since then, the Miura has largely remained in climate-controlled storage, although in preparation for the current offering the car underwent a fluid service in November 2022 to ensure basic operating condition. As the beneficiary of a full restoration by one of America’s leading Lamborghini specialists, the quality of which has been confirmed by the car’s impressive show record, this striking P400 SV would make a fabulous acquisition for any marque enthusiast or collector of iconic sports cars. It is also worth noting that the car bears mechanical stampings that indicate it retains its numbers-matching chassis, engine, and body.»
