Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Elkhart Collection 2020, verkauft für 1’160’000 Dollar, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «The P400 S offered here was originally built on 22 January 1969 and delivered by Italian dealer Auto Elite of Bologna, finished in Silver with Mustard leather interior and equipped with engine number 2706. Its ownership history is reportedly known back to the mid-1970s, when it was acquired by George Cocalas of Long Beach, California. It next passed in 1978 to Joseph Koenig, also of Long Beach, then the following year to the noted exotic car collector and enthusiast Oliver Kuttner. In 1988 the Miura was purchased by Randy Simon, who exhibited it at the New York Auto Show in 1991. In 1995 the Miura was sold to Steve Colletti of Whittier, California, who immediately embarked upon a four-year restoration effort. A summary of the restoration, which is on file, notes the in-depth work as including stripping the bodywork and chassis to their bare metal, carefully and properly repairing any flaws, and installing desirable late-SV engineering features such as front chassis stiffeners, a solid front shock tower brace, and frame rail modifications to deflect more air to the radiator and front brake rotors. All suspension components were crack-checked for safety and either cadmium-plated or powder-coated, while the shocks were rebuilt by Koni. The brakes were upgraded to SV specifications, with improved cross-drilled rotors, carbon/Kevlar brake pads, and flexible braided stainless-steel brake lines. The engine was rebuilt by the great Bob Wallace with custom JAE pistons and rings and a .5 mm overbore, as well as the superior split-sump lubrication system, and exhales through ANSA sport exhaust; Mr. Wallace also added a limited-slip differential and updated the bearings, bushings, and transmission synchros. The original fuel tank was upgraded to a modern aluminum fuel cell for safety, and Mr. Wallace vented the carburetors for safety. The body was refinished in fitting Giallo Fly with silver sills and wheels. The interior was restored throughout with very attractive dark grey upholstery and complementary carpets, headliner, and steering-wheel covering. Having set up his Miura P400 S to drive and enjoy, Mr. Colletti did exactly that until 2008, making many trips from his Southern California home to Monterey for the annual “Car Week,” including showing off the car at the Concorso Italiano. Today the restoration, despite those road miles, is still in excellent overall condition with few signs of wear to the paint and interior, and has been well maintained in the current collection. Reportedly one of the favorite automobiles in the fleet, it has been occasionally exhibited at Midwestern concours d’elegance, as well as used on the road as Mr. Lamborghini intended.»
