Dann, 2013, tauchte der gleiche Wagen wieder bei RM Sotheby’s auf, Villa Erba. Mit folgender Beschreibung: « The Lamborghini presented here, chassis 3087, is one of only 474 Miura P400s produced between 1966 and 1970. It was delivered new, as a left-hand drive example, to Garage Foitek in Zürich, Switzerland, the dealership of former Swiss race car driver Karl Foitek. By 1976, the car was owned by John A. Andrews, of Reston, Virginia, and it was purchased by Sig. Prevosti in 1989 at Motorcars International in Dallas, Texas. Thereafter, it was exported to Italy, where it remained a part of his collection until 2007. During that time, the aluminium body was fully restored and finished in its original Rosso Miura colour with silver sills and black bumpers. All four wheels have likewise been restored, finished in silver, and were fitted with new tyres. A period-correct spare wheel is located under the front bonnet. The red body contrasts well with the interior, which has been upholstered in Senape leather, as it was originally delivered, and it was fully retrimmed to a very high standard. The dashboard and centre console have also been restored and finished in brown and tan leather and includes the original instrumentation. The engine bay is also very clean and nicely detailed. Proper restoration and maintenance are also evident under the front bonnet and on the black-painted chassis. The fit and finish of the body continues to remain in excellent condition. Since purchasing the car in 2007, the current owner has maintained the Miura to the highest standards. Most recently, the engine and gearbox were fully rebuilt by Peter Rosenmayer in Germany, the work totalling over €100,000. Supporting documentation and receipts are included in the car’s file. This Miura has been restored to a particularly high standard and has seen very little road use since completion. The P400’s styling and performance are just as impressive today as they were in 1967. Perhaps its most fitting description was printed in Road & Track, whose editors described the Miura as “one of those beautiful experiences every enthusiast owes himself”.» Das Fahrzeug wurde auch verkauft, für 425’600 Euro. Ein kleines Detail ging dabei irgendwo vergessen, auch in der Beschreibung: die neue Motoren-Nummer lautete 2793. Das wäre dann die Maschine aus Chassisnummer #3922, ein P400S.
