Lamborghini’s Polo Storico division has helped bring yet another Miura back to life. It’s one of just six originally painted in Azzurro Mexico and was owned by one of the most famous Italian singers of the 1960s: Little Tony.
Antonio Ciacci (his real name) took delivery of this Miura P400 S on March 2, 1971, in San Marino. Two years later, it was registered with a Rome, Italy, license plate, whereas today, the car is in the possession of an Italian collector, who isn’t willing to part ways with it anytime soon.
The Miura has underwent complete restoration, with Polo Storico doing much more than supplying the original spare parts required to complete the work. Lamborghini’s department dedicated to preserving the brand’s heritage provided full information about the vehicle using the archives and offered their expertise on making sure that everything remains original and all work stayed true to the way things were done back in the day.
With its Polo Storico certification and celebrity ownership, the Miura is present, right now, at the 2019 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. At the event that takes place between May 24 and 26 this year, on the shores of Lake Como, Italy, the car will be competing in the class called ‘Baby You Can Drive My Car: Cars of the Music Stars’.
It’s going to be a very busy weekend for those into classic cars, as numerous old timers have been brought to the show – and you can at least check out some of them on the event’here, on the event’s official webpage.
