According to the Lamborghini Miura register, chassis no. 4356 is the 437th Miura built, and one of just 140 ‚S‘ models, the lowest production segment of all of the Miura Series. Production was completed December 10th, 1969 with engine number 30440 installed- still found in the car today. The car was painted in the rare Bianco Miura (white) and trimmed with a Nero (black) interior.

Today, this rare Miura S represents everything about the original design and construction that made the Miura a legendary car. Having been repainted in bright red at some point in the ownership history, the paint work appears to have been professionally executed with good coverage in all areas.

The beautiful Campagnolo cast alloy wheels appear very nice overall with very good finish, though show some finish patina on the knockoffs. The glass appears to be original, surrounded by trim that remains very good overall but with some dryness to the rubber. The headlights and taillights also remain in very good condition and are found with the original Carello markings. Overall, the car has a very complete and satisfying unrestored visual presence. The interior remains original, showing several surfaces that appear quite good and serviceable including the door panels and a remarkably preserved dashboard. The headrests appear to be original and in good condition, indicating that the car may have been fitted with black leather and ecru fabric inserts, remnants of which can be seen in the center of the driver’s seat. The dashboard, instruments, and steering wheel are all original equipment displaying patina to the threaded stitching along the dashboard edge. Door panels, headliner, and other minor interior trim all are complete and can serve as patterns for accurate restoration or thoughtfully repaired and reconditioned to boast of the original materials and long-term ownership. Under the hood, the beautifully designed Lamborghini DOHC V12 engine displays the hallmark castings and detailed finishes that distinguish the mechanical mastery of these fine cars. With the alloy rear panel opened, it is easy to appreciate the beauty and engineering of this drivetrain package. The engine compartment is clean and largely undisturbed with care having been given to retain as many of the original components as possible. The Weber carburetors are in place with beautiful velocity stacks and clean body castings. Suspension, engine castings, and various mechanical components visible from the underside are all sound, with some areas also cosmetically freshened. The car starts and runs with quite well, and there is virtually no smoke when warm or cold. The overall driving experience remains quite good, including an excellent engine note, progressive acceleration, a smooth operating gearbox, compliant suspension, and functional brakes.
