The Polo Storico division of Lamborghini is focused on the company’s iconic heritage cars. As a part of this mission, it restored a pre-production Miura SV in a beautiful green paint job. This particular car has the chassis number 4846 and was the model that appeared at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show at Bertone's stand.
In 1971 the car was a seriously interesting machine because it showcased parts that were on the Miura S, and it brandished new parts that were yet to come to the SV production models. Polo Storico spent about a year obsessing over every tiny detail of the car to restore it perfectly to the condition it was in when it appeared in Geneva in 1971.
"This is a very important car, not only for its place in history as the Geneva show car and the forerunner of future Miura SV models built, but as the first completed project of Lamborghini Polo Storico," said Enrico Maffeo, Head of Polo Storico in a Lamborghini press release.
The car helps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura. Enrico Maffeo said that the car not only showcases the Miura’s innate beauty and “iconic appeal” to sports car owners, but it helps provide Polo Storico with the recognition it deserves.
Polo Storico is still fairly new. It opened in the spring of 2015, and was created to help Lamborghini’s heritage by managing Lamborghini’s archives, dealing with spare parts for iconic models, certifying historic Lamborghini cars and restoring classics like this Miura SV.
