This 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S by Bertone hidden away in a California Bay Area warehouse for over four decades resurfaced as a fully restored classic in a unique bare metal finish. Built to US spec, this particular example bearing chassis 4761, it was originally owned by a 19-year-old Iranian student attending college at the University of California, unfortunately after a minor accident it was put aside to wait for repair work that would take decades to begin.
Originally finished in “Gray/White” with a full blue interior, it’s presented now in stunning bare aluminum with fewer than 16,000 miles at time of cataloguing.
This beauty went through a lengthy restoration process that included a nose reconstruction by Beckman Metal Works and a drivetrain refresh by Miura specialist Jeff Stephan.
Estimated to fetch between $1.8m and $2.2m USD this masterpiece is heading to auction in Monterey, California on August 14. Find out more on the RM Sotheby’s website.
