Lamborghini restored the coupe Miura president of the FIAFebruary 8, 2019
Restoration of the car took 13 months
The Lamborghini Polo Storico, which is engaged in the restoration of classic Italian brand models, presented its latest work at the Rétromobile Paris auction. This is a restored Miura SV coupe, owned by the President of the International Automobile Federation Jean Todt.
The Lamborghini Miura SV with the chassis number “3673” from the 1968 Miura S destroyed in the accident was assembled on November 11, 1972. The use of old rooms at that time was often practiced, mainly to protect customers from high import duties on a new car. At the same time, the car also kept the same registration number and documents.
At the end of 1972, the coupe was delivered to the first owner – South African pilot Arthur Machin. Just as now, Miura was painted in a shade of red Rosso Corsa, which was combined with golden thresholds. Subsequently, the car passed to Todt.
Restoration work took 13 months. Polo Storico specialists completely disassembled the car, checked the markings of parts, and also made sure that they match the records in the service documentation.
The keys to the restored Lamborghini Miura were handed over to the owner personally by the head of the company Stefano Domenicali.
In addition to the Miura SV, the Polo Storico exhibited on the Rétromobile Paris 1966 Lamborghini 400 GT. The car is now undergoing complete restoration and belongs to a Canadian collector.
