A Miura for the Perfectionist Collector
This Miura is the one and only P 400 delivered in the colour combination with Argento Indianapolis and Senape interior. The interior colour has been confirmed by Simon Kidston and his great Bertone and Murazzi archive.
The car is matching colours and matching numbers and completely restored.
Beside its great appearance and technical condition the most interesting fact is the amazing original mileage of only 19 550 km which is confirmed by the written statements of the early owners.
We do not even know any P 400 with a lower mileage in existence.
The car was delivered by Lamborghini to Paris Voitures Monceau where it was bought by a very famous US citizen Max Hess Jr. from Allentown in Pennsylvania. The legendary Hess family is known for their idea to develop a shop in shop luxury department store system. In their best times they had more than sixty department stores all over the US and as well in Rome, London and Paris.
In one of his visits in Paris Max Hess Jr. discovered the Miura and bought it for his son Tommy who kept it until 1980.
Up from 1980 its history is confirmed by the last four owners, partly documented by invoices and historical photos.
I suppose that our car is one of the most beautiful Lamborghini Miura P 400 with a complete and short owner history and a confirmed low mileage of only
19 550 km.
