Lamborghini is well known for their craftsmanship, distinguished body lines, and amazing performance. Known as a truly unique manufacturer throughout the industry, their precision engineering is instantly recognizable as soon as a Lambo starts it’s engine. The 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 S is certainly no exception to the rule. An original classic, the Lamborghini Miura was the first supercar with a rear mid-engined, two-seat layout. At the time of it’s release into the wild, the Miura was the fastest production car on the road.
This supercar was originally made with the idea to create a car that could win on the track, but also be owned and driven on the streets. The “Miura”, named after the famous Spanish fighting bull, was an instant favorite among car enthusiasts.
A three year restoration project, the ‘Millechiodi’ is special for many reasons.The P400 S was fully restored to resemble the very first ‘Jota’ model that Lamborghini ever created, the Lamborghini Miura Jota. The Jota was heavily modified all around and had more horsepower with less weight. Unfortunately, only one Miura Jota was ever made and it was wrecked due to a crash that burned the car to a crisp.
The amazing history behind Lamborghini and the masterful work that went into bringing the ‘Millechiodi’ back to life is quite the ride. Thankfully, some of the top Lamborghini engineers wanted to share their passion for fine automobiles with the public and the 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 S ‘Millechiodi’ was reborn. The Miura ‘Millechiodi’ was restored and repainted back to the original British Racing Green with a black leather interior, making this car perfect all around.
Supercars get noticed when they are on the road, but few are as iconic as the 1968 Lamborghini Miura. That’s what makes the Millechiodi P400 S even more special, it is truly one of a kind.
