Assigned production no. 733, it was originally finished in Bleu Tahiti (Tahitian Blue) paint with gold accents over white leather upholstery; it is the only Miura known to have been supplied new in this fantastic color scheme. A late-production, European-specification example, it was factory-equipped with improved split-sump lubrication and optional Borletti air-conditioning. At $555, air-conditioning was among the most expensive options available for the SV, and it is believed that just 30 examples were so equipped.
Upon completion, 5066 was invoiced to official Lamborghini concessionaire Righetti in Vicenza, making it one of approximately 49 SVs delivered new in Italy. Its first owner, Domenico Schiavo of Padua, reportedly purchased the car to honor the memory of his late brother, who had dreamed of owning a Miura. Sig. Schiavo registered the car in Padua as “PD 319260” and retained it for the next 38 years, driving it nearly 80,000 km during his ownership.
The SV remained in the hands of its original owner until 2010, when it joined a private European collection. Between 2011 and 2013, chassis 5066 was extensively restored, with the project overseen by Cremonini Carrozzeria of Modena, one of the world’s leading Miura specialists. Consistent with that company’s reputation, the SV was restored to the highest standards, while taking care to preserve its rare factory options and distinctive color scheme.
The current owner acquired the SV in 2018 and has used it sparingly, most recently in the South of France. Today, 5066 remains in excellent condition throughout and is meticulously detailed, down to the correct-type hose clamps and period-correct Pirelli CN12 Cinturato tires. Significantly, this outstanding Miura retains its matching-numbers engine (no. 30728) and is accompanied by its original Padua license plates.» Photos: © Mathieu Heurtault.
