Lamborghini Miura Roadster Goes On Sale


The only Miura Roadster ever built by Lamborghini is up for sale in Geneva. Designed by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini the unique model was originally shown at the 1968 Brussels Motor Show and toured the world as a show car.

Under new ownership the car’s bodywork was reworked with lead and zinc components and used as a futuristic concept to showcase the materials. It even made an appearance on the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World program.

After spending some years in a Brooklyn museum the roadster reached its present owner in the US via the UK, Japan and France. $330,000 has been spent restoring it to its original state and subsequently it took second in class at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Despite some private convertions of hard-top Miuras the 1968 model is a complete one-off with no roof or windows. The price is not being made public but it is worth remembering that Ferrari built no fewer than 106 California Spyders, and these change hands for over $2million...
