Two Owner Lamborghini Miura Seeks Third

I can’t grasp the idea of letting a Volkswagen Jetta sit idly into near oblivion so when I come across cars like this 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S doing just about that it’s a real head scratcher.

The first owner of this amazing piece of automotive engineering was described in the listing as a “playboy” and never has a car owner seemed more on brand than that. He would then sell the car to its second owner who has maintained possession within the family to this day and looks to part with it at RM Sotheby’s London auction on October 24th. This second owner was yet another ideal owner for the car driving it regularly in Europe for 40 years until his death in 2015. After that the car would sit idle in a barn… a tale as old as time.

Through the years the car was never restored, but it was maintained. According to the auction listing, “the car retains its original engine and still sports its original Giallo Flay paintwork. The original Skay Bleu interior presents beautifully, showing the attractive patina of 40 years of careful use. The only two deviations from original are the addition of front indicators and Schroth four-point seat belts.”

When the car crosses the block in London it is projected to fetch between 1-1.3 million dollars US. A hefty price, but a small one to pay for a Miura this original and forever iconic.
