The Lamborghini Miura is certainly one of the world’s most iconic vehicles. It accomplished many things, not the least of which shooting Lambo’s name up the top-tier automotive names. There have been a handful of Miura offshoots that really impressed us, one among the many being the 1968 Miura P400 S Millechiodi.
The 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 S Millechiodi arrives as a stunning re-work of what’s perhaps one of the most admired one-off platforms in the history of luxury rides, the Miura Jota. In the early years, Bob Wallace, then the chief engineer, created the Jota as a prototype/variant. He hoped it would catapult the brand into the motorsport.
To do so, Wallace made several adjustments. He inserted lightweight alloy panels and enhanced the V-12’s standard engine capabilities by over 100 horsepower. Then a private owner took it, and somewhere down the line it broke in an accident. Gutted, Walter Ronchi, who owned the Jota before its untimely demise, commissioned two former Lambo employees to rebuild the car, in 1975. And thus, comes the Lamborghini Miura P400 S Millechiodi. It served as a near-exact replica of the original classic.
In 2015, the Lamborghini Miura P400 S Millechiodi received a complete restoration, valuing the car at $320,000. Now, the platform comes back for sale via Kidston SA at Switzerland. The selling price remains uncertain still as of this writing, however. But given the Miuras often change hands for prices well into the millions, don’t expect this to come cheap.
