1968 Lamborghini Miura P400

When the Lamborghini Miura debuted in 1966, it established a precedent for the Italian company as a maker not just of high-performance GTs, but of radical sports cars with futuristic styling and engineering to match. An immediate classic, the Miura is one of the most desirable cars in the world, and this 1968 example has a history to match. Initially sold in Switzerland, the car was wrecked early on and written off. In an attempt to dodge tax issues, Lamborghini fixed the owner up with a new Miura using the same serial numbers for chassis and motor, verified by factory records. The eventually became part of the Yoshiho Matsuda collection in Tokyo before moving to the US and finally Germany, where it is now up for sale. This Miura has been painted red over its original white and shows just over 12,000 miles on the odometer — a pristine example of one of the world’s most beautiful car designs.
