Get yourself the unique Miura SV of the Saudi Royal Family
Chassis s/n 5076 is a special Lamborghini Miura not only because it’s a very late-model SV—and thus one of just 96 to utilize the far more reliable split oil sump system—but also because equipped with engine s/n 30745, it was delivered to the Saudi Royal Family featuring a pair of special aero canards at the front. When it left the factory on the 14th of September, 1972, this Miura SV was originally finished in Giallo Flay (yellow) with a black interior—only to be found in Riyadh under a stack of cardboard boxes in a warehouse in the early 2000s, showing just 2361 miles on the clock.
As it turns out, only two Miuras left Sant’Agata with these canards, with this former Saudi example landing in the U.S. in 2005 to get a full nut-and-bolt restoration at Boblieff Motorcars. During that two-year process, the car was changed from yellow over black to a metallic grey exterior with a two-tone orange cabin. In the spring of 2008, this immaculate SV was sold to an heir of a sprinkler manufacturing company living in the Pacific Palisades, only to change hands once again in 2010 and end up being registered in the UK by 2011.
Now offered by high-end specialist Joe Macari of London with 3578 original miles for an eye-watering $3.2 million, this is probably the lowest-mileage example of the 150 original Miura SVs made—and a Saudi Royal Family car that, despite the canards, wasn’t ordered with air-conditioning back in 1972.
