The recent RM-Sotheby's Paris auction held earlier this month saw a number of Lamborghini iconic cars being auctioned at insane prices. The one that takes the cake was a 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV (chassis number #4840) as well as a fine-looking 1977 Lamborghini Countach LP400 (chassis number #1120262).
So, what’s so special about these particular Lambos? For one thing, this particular Miura SV received a very special certification from Lamborghini Polo Storico, the brand’s exclusive restoration program that focuses on bringing classic Lamborghini cars back to showroom condition together with all the works. Their services were particularly needed in the restoration of this Miura SV, where only 150 units were produced.
Despite its troubled history, the 1971 Miura SV was successfully restored to its original trim and fetched a whopping €2.4 million (around RM11.8 million) at RM-Sotheby's auction in Paris, France two weeks back. This makes this unit the second most expensive Miura SV in history. If this doesn’t float your boat, perhaps the 1977 Countach LP400 below might do some justice.
There were only 157 examples produced and this one used to be owned by a very iconic singer. Ever heard of Sir Rod Stewart? Yes, that Rod Stewart. Well, this lovely Countach was auctioned off at an incredible €775,000 (around RM3.8 million) and we can honestly say that Lambo’s Polo Storico did an amazing job in restoring this beauty (despite the car had its roof cut off once in its lifetime. Yikes.)
