Auktion: RM Sotheby’s, Monterey 2013, Schätzpreis 650’000 bis 750’000 Dollar, nicht verkauft, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «The P400 S offered here is confirmed by Lamborghini factory records as having been produced August 4, 1969, in Silver Metallic with black and beige upholstery. Originally delivered to Coppini S.E.A. Baracchi, it was put away in 1974 and remained undriven until its acquisition, very recently, by a collector and enthusiast outside of Milan. An e-mail from Fabio Lamborghini, which is on file and available for inspection, confirms that this car retains, to this day, its original, matching-numbers data tag, frame, and body panels, which can be found to have the original body number, 477, on the hood, doors, and rear louvers. All body components are stamped with their original codes, including the correct numbered glass. Even the door handles and the latches are original. The engine block is stamped as having been built in November 1969, indicating that it was possibly replaced at some time by Lamborghini as some type of warranty work. Much of the paint remains original, with the checks and marks of age, but it is in a remarkable state of preservation overall; in addition, much of the interior is also original. The car is supplied with its original tool roll and bag, jack and bag, and hammer, as well as the parts and owner’s manuals, a 1969 dealer register, a sales brochure, and the Italian registration plates. The speedometer unit has been replaced and is not original, so it is difficult to tell exactly how many miles are on this car, but its condition indicates that it is very low. With so many Miuras found today having undergone exhaustive restoration, the car shown here is an example of preservation of original features, resulting in an increasingly desirable asset. Having been tucked away in a Milanese garage and hidden from the public for more than three decades, the spark plugs were changed and some very minor service work was performed, but the car started straight away. Accompanied in the file is a video of the car being driven at speed, and the owner reports that the car performed wonderfully. Please consult an RM specialist to review the footage of the car driving. This is a once-in-a lifetime chance to acquire a car that has patina in spades, and it would be the ideal basis for freshening mechanically and driving “as-is,” or as the best possible beginning for a ground-up restoration. It is, simply put, “the original supercar,” at its most original.»
