Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, London 2012, Schätzpreis 320’000 bis 360’000 Pfund, verkauft für 397’600 Pfund, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «The Miura P400S on offer today is a matching-numbers example with a fully documented provenance. It was sold new by Voitures Paris Monceau on 28th August 1970, in Rosso Corsa with black leather interior and the rare Borletti air-conditioning option. In 1970, it was registered in the South of France in the Alpes Martimes region. The Miura Register next records it in Belgium in 2002, indicating 70,000 kilometres. Around October of 2003, it had received a chassis restoration and wider nine-inch SV rear wheels. In early-2012, this car received a thorough engine rebuild, after which the car was thoroughly inspected by an RM specialist in Bareggio, near Milan, Italy. It was confirmed that the car is a matching-numbers example in its original Rosso Corsa colour and has a new tan leather interior. Its newer paint is very good, and the adjustment of the doors and the front and rear clamshell bonnets are correct. When the Miura was driven in Italy, it started instantly and ran smoothly even when cold. Oil pressure is good, with 8 bars cold/5.5 bars hot (115/80 lbs.), and the engine runs strongly and smoothly throughout its range. The clutch is light and the gearbox shifts easily, with the synchromesh effective between all five gears, going up the box or down. All dashboard gauges work correctly, the steering is direct with no free-play, and the car brakes perfectly straight from speed. The suspension is tight with no clunks or rattles, and both electric windows work correctly. Low slung, distinctly designed, and engineered to look and drive like no other, the Miura is a true thoroughbred and is the only car of the early-1970s that can rival the mighty Ferrari in both looks and performance. This example is a lovely car that will always be admired and desired, and it will undoubtedly provide for years of exciting ownership.»
