Five Stunning Lamborghini Miuras Heading To Pebble Beach

Monterey Car Week is upon us and the premiere event of the festivities, and the Concours d’Elegance event will include a new class specifically for the iconic Lamborghini Miura.

In total, there will be five exceptional Miuras on display during Pebble Beach. Of them, three have been expertly restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico in Sant’Agata and if the owners ever decide to parts ways with them, they’ll definitely fetch huge amounts of money.

The first of the five Miuras heading to Pebble Beach was the 22nd example built and was originally delivered to Swiss racing driver Karl Foitek in June 1967. The vehicle’s eventual third owner had it restored by a Lamborghini expert in the U.S. before the current owner purchased it in October 2018.

Also on display will be a 1968 P400 that’s the 101st such model built and was originally owned by the Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran. After he was deposed by the 1979 revolution, it was confiscated by the new government but eventually smuggled out of the country and for the following 30 years owned by the Shah’s son. The current owner acquired it earlier this year.

The third Lambo heading to Pebble Beach is a 1968 car used during the opening scene of The Italian Job that was restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico earlier this year.

The fourth is also particularly desirable, as it is one of just 150 SVs ever manufactured and is owned by FIA president Jean Todt. The car spent nearly 30 years living in South Africa before finding its way to the U.S. in 2001 and being purchased by Todt in 2016. It was restored last year.

Last, but most definitely not least, is the one-off Miura SVR. The car started out life as a ‘regular’ S but was sent back to the factory in 1974 where it underwent a host of modifications and was restored by Lamborghini itself in 2016.

      Agree, but maybe without the wing 😁.

        Agreed,that wing looks very odd.

          I don’t know, I weirdly like it. Sort of adds a unique character.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    It is crazy how modern yet classic that design looks. It is even hard to understand how something like that could be conceived.

    Is it kinda weird that I like the pretty much standard one here the most, I like the orange one tbh more than the others.
