Beschrieben als Registration No. Q464 DPG, Chassis No. P400XN1613435, Engine No. 1827, Red with black leather and cloth interior: «This Miura was delivered in March 1968 to a dealer in Milan, when it was finished in white/black. Its subsequent history largely remains to be discovered, although it is believed to have raced in the USA, driven by the great Formula One personality Jackie Stewart. It is understood the signature on the car’s steering wheel is his. Documents indicate that in 1994, £11,397 was spent with a specialist in England on an engine top overhaul and other work which involved removing the engine and transmission. There was also attention to carburettors, distributors, brakes, suspension and steering. Today, the car is as inspiring to drive as when new; the engine pulls sweetly and the exhaust blasts its reminder to other road users that here is a true supercar on the move. The bodywork has a few blemishes of age but the point of the Miura is to drive it – that the sensuous curves still attract admirers is but a bonus. The oil pressure is healthy, the electric fans control the water temperature effectively in traffic conditions and the brakes are reassuring – a new owner will probably fit new tyres shortly whilst a new battery was fitted a few weeks ago; indeed, the Miura has an MoT until July 1998. Without doubt a stunning car and so rewarding to drive.»; Bonham’s, Monte Carlo 2003, verkauft für 83’900 Euro: «Factory records show this car was sold on 28th March 1968 via Italian dealer Autoelite- it was the 161st Miura built. Some years later the car was imported to the UK, being acquired there at auction by the current owner in 1997. At the time the catalogue referred to Jackie Stewart having raced the car but a call to him confirms this to be incorrect- a facsimile of Stewart’s signature does however appear on the steering wheel. Further reference was made at the time to expenditure of GBP11,397 on mechanical work in 1994 to include a top end overhaul and other items. Upon purchase the current Italian owner, a Monegasque resident primarily a collector of fine art, determined that his newly acquired Lamborghini should be ready for enjoyment whenever the mood took him. The car was despatched to Italy where Milan concessionaire Touring Auto performed a mechanical restoration costing _36,707, plus a further _8,166 for detail finishing. Coachwork was entrusted to B Roadster of Voghera, to include a bare metal repaint in Rosso Corsa and retrim in black leather at a cost of some _18,000. Following this work the car was submitted for inspection by the Monegasque authorities and issued with a Monaco road registration on 6/9/2002.»; Poulain, Paris 2004, Schätzpreis 90’000 bis 110’000 Euro, nicht verkauft.
