Need a Christmas present for that special someone? RM is selling this very soon...
All Miuras are special; you know that, we know that, everyone knows that. Some, however, are a little more special than others. Like chassis #4912, this 1971 P400 SV.
It is one of just five single sump cars sold in the USA; on return to the States from Japan in 2011 it was subject to a cosmetic and mechanical resto; it even has, believe it or not, air-con from the factory. But most importantly, the thing that makes this Miura really special is that it's the only SV finished in Bleu Medio. And doesn't it look fantastic?
We're so used to seeing Miuras in lurid greens, oranges or yellows that it's a (pleasant) surprise to see one in a more subdued colour. It says a lot, in fact, for the drama of the Miura's silhouette that it's still absolutely stunning. Who says blue with gold wheels is just for Subarus?
Unsurprisingly given the mystique that's built up around the Miura over the past half a century, this SV is not going cheap: $2.1-$2.5m, says RM Sotheby's, which is selling the car at its Peterson Museum sale in December. Still, for a unique example of perhaps the definitive supercar... alright, yeah, it's still a lot of money. Here's the desktop wallpaper if you're also $2.5m short!
Beautiful. The perfect antidote to all the fast German estates that keep cropping up on here.

Well i first started my love of cars with a poster of the most beautiful car ever built and have never seen anything since to change my mind but i lie the lurid colours rather that the boring blue to be honest

That car has soul in bucketfuls. It excites me in a way all modern hypercars fail to do. Now, if only I had £2M down the back of the sofa...
