1971 Lamborghini Miura P400

Chassis number : 4832

Share on:

This Muira S is a very late S and retains the most prominent styling feature of the P400 model. The Miura was designed by Marcell Gandini and the design was executed by Bertone. A mid -mounted transverse V12 engine provides power, this car was monumental in its influence on the direction of all future Lamborghini models. One of the more defining features of this design, the headlight eyebrows can be seen. As a late production S it also received many of the SV model upgrades, such as 9-inch rear wheels and air conditioning.

While under development, the car was referred to as the P400 chassis. The 'P' meaning Posteriore on the engine placement and the 400 referencing its 4 liter displacement. It is interesting to note that in order to shorten the wheelbase for the chassis, it was decided to share the lubrication system of the engine and gearbox in order to compact the drive-train.

This Muira S was purchased from the estate of David Walters, a collector from Beverly Hills, CA. The car spent much of its time on the island of Kauai in Hawaii where the Mr. Walters was a real estate developer. The car was consigned to Canepa Motorcars in Scotts Valley, CA. A friend of the current owner saw this Muira S on display at Canepa's and it was acquired over the phone by the current owner.

This Miura is number 609 of 760 built (chassis number 4832). It features a 375 horsepower V12 engine, mounted transversely, with integral 5-speed transaxle. This is a very unique Miura as this was when the model year (S to SV) was occurring and you can see that the factory used some components from each model. It was produced on St. Patrick's day in 1971 along with a group of 8 to 10 cars that were the last of the S models.

As Lamborghini's flagship car, the Miura received periodic updates and remained in production until 1972, and was not replaced in the automaker's lineup until the Countach entered production in 1974.
