At RM Sotheby’s auction on Friday, January 17, a rare sports car will go under the hammer.

All Lamborghini Miuras are exceptionally rare, but a truly unique version of the first ever Lamborghini supercar will be auctioned on January 17th. Despite the fact that collectors often prefer the originals, this 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV should still go for a good amount – from 1.4 to 1.6 million dollars.

This Miura SV rolled off the assembly line on December 10, 1971, and its body was originally green in color with a black interior, as well as the factory engine V12. Before importing to the United States, its first owner repainted the car in red, and its second owner, an Lamborghini engineer, converted the engine in 1978.

Lamborghini also got wider 10-inch rear wheels. In 1979, this Miura SV was sold to a third and current owner who refurbished a beige leather supercar interior, adding contrast to the bright red body.

Although the 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV is far from the original, it was changed by the hands of an expert Lamborghini and is in impeccable condition and has a well-documented history.
