Lühn zum Verkauf mit folgender Beschreibung: «This Miura, chassis number 3069, was delivered new to Zurich-based Lamborghini dealer Foitek in July 1967. It was sent to sunny California in 1969 and remained there until being transported to Florida in 2005 for a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration at the workshop of the marque experts of Ultimate Motor Works in Orlando. The work was completed in February of 2010. The car was stripped to bare metal and every part of the car received individual attention from the restoration experts. From the paint and the body to the interior, suspension, wiring and brakes, everything was restored to concours level. The car was painted red earlier in his history, it was returned to its factory correct yellow. There was no need to restore the blue interior, as it was in such original and excellent condition. Even Lamborghini’s retired Chief Test Driver and factory historian, Valentino Balboni, was involved in the process, inspecting it on several occasions throughout its restoration, and on the first visit, remarked to the owner at that time: ‚‘This must be one of the first 20 cars we ever made.” The visible clues for this observation were that certain bracing points on the chassis were changed very early in the Miura’s developed. This Mirua did not have those changes. After the restauration Valentino Balboni inspected the car once more, confirming that every little detail – down to the hoses and bolts – was factory correct! The engine in the car was formerly in chassis #4494 and, as such, is in fact a desirable P400S unit – a common upgrade in its days. The ‚S‘ variant of the Miura was introduced in 1968 with the ‚S‘ representing spinto,‘ or ‚tuned.‘ The car is owned by a collector for almost 3 years and is now for sale. A truly unique opportunity to purchase a highly eligible and very rare piece of sports car history in concours condition.» Anscheinend: verkauft.

Steht bei Schaltkulisse zum Verkauf (Mai 2024), angeboten mit folgendem Text: «Chassis 3069 is one of the first generation of the famed Miura, the car which represents the purest itineration of one of the most famous cars ever built. These early examples we denominated ‘P400’ as opposed to the later ‘S’ and ‘SV’ variants. The car was delivered on the 18th July 1967 via the official Swiss dealer for Lamborghini, Garage Foitek in Zurich to its first owner Mr Spring. Perhaps appropriately Mr Spring chose the vibrant colour scheme of Giallo Miura over a blue interior, as the car is presented today. The car left Switzerland early in its life and made its way to the USA sometime around 1969. Either shortly after arriving in the USA or perhaps just before leaving Europe the car was upgraded with the upgraded ‘S’ specification engine from another Swiss delivery car, chassis 4509. According to a 2005 auction catalogue the car was also repainted burgundy in 1970 and found a home in California where it remained until 2002, before being sold to Washington and registered ‘I MIURA’. Images of the time show that the car was unrestored and still wearing the burgundy finish applied in 1970. Having been sold to its fourth owner in 2005 the car was subject to a full restoration by Ultimate Motor Works in Orlando, supervised by Valentino Balboni, which was completed in 2010. As part of this restoration the chassis was strengthened to ‘S’ specification, a common and desirable modification which addresses one of the major design weaknesses of the early cars. Production numbers are visible throughout the body of the car attesting to the completeness and originality of chassis 3069. Finally, the car was returned to its stunning original colour combination of Giallo Miura over Blue. Following the completion of this exacting professional restoration the car again sold at auction to a collector in Dubai. Finally in 2016 the car returned to Europe and formed part of a collection near to Munich. The current owner is an enthusiastic driver of his cars and therefore he has made a considerable investment in ensuring that it is always in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Since 2018 the car has been serviced annually and over €65,000 spent in maintenance. To improve the handling and road holding wider ‘SV’ specification wheels were fitted as well as period look adjustable dampers, the original wheels and suspension components have all be retained should the next owner wish to return the car to factory specification».
