The iconic rock star purchased this Lamborghini Miura as new back in 1971, but the P400 S has since been upgraded by the current owner into the feistier SV specification.
This beautiful blue 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S that once belonged to Rod Stewart is now looking for a different owner after last year Amari Super Cars GB had it up for sale at no less than £1.25 million ($1.5M). It was a bit too much at the time it seems, since it never sold, and it’s now popping back during an auction with the fetching price of anywhere between £800,000 and £900,000 ($976,000 to $1.1M). It’s also not really a P400 S because the owner decided for a conversion into the better SV specification after full restoration took place back in 2013.
The car has been reverted to its factory specification Blue Notte color and even has a period-correct pattern and carpets for the black interior. It’s a right hand drive Miuria – one of just 764 Miuras ever built by Lamborghini during the period of 1966 to 1973. Its 4.0-liter V12 engine was capable of 380 horsepower and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) of torque – and the car will be shown at the “The Classic & Sports Car Show” in London.
