Lamborghini restored the rarest Miura SVJFebruary 6, 2020
The car has not been exhibited in public since the early 2000s
The historical division of Lamborghini Polo Storico brought to the Rétromobile classic car exhibition in Paris the rarest version of the Miura. The SVJ series consisted of only four copies, and the inspiration for it was the experimental P400 Jota two-door, built by the Lamborghini test pilot Bob Wallace in 1970.
Exhibited in Paris, the Lamborghini Miura SVJ with chassis number “4860” was built in 1973 for the German race car driver Hubert Hahn, who at that time was the official importer of the brand. Initially, the sports car was black, with a black and white leather interior, but in 1977, Khan repainted the car in silver. The coupe remained in Germany until the early 2000s and then fell to the Japanese collector. Since then, the Miura SVJ has never appeared in public.
Specialists of Polo Storico began work on the restoration of the sports car by studying archived records, notes and photographs. A thorough analysis of the available materials made it possible to accurately reproduce the initial state of the machine and literally “preserve” it.
In 2018, Polo Storico completed the restoration of the only existing Miura SVR. A unique car built in accordance with the Jota P400 racing specification in 1974 by order of the former owner Heinz Straber. The restoration of the coupe took 19 months.
