Who needs a cape and tights if they have a 1972 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV? Coined as the original Supercar, the Lamborghini Miura gives Badass Status to anyone who sits behind the wheel. And in a couple weeks that anyone could be you. This bad boy will be up for auction on Dec. 10th, as part of the Driven By Disruption (http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/2015/driven-by-disruption-new-york-n09426.html) Event at RM-Sotheby’s Auctions.

With its muscular silhouette, it’s hard to believe that Miura’s chassis has received just as much attention as its body. Miura’s chassis was revealed in 1966, attracting attention and drawing up orders before it was even built. When it finally reached completion, it became the sexiest vehicle on the road.

The Miura P400 SV by Bertone features a 3,929 cc DOHC transverse mid-mounted alloy V-12 engine with four Weber twin-choke carburetors. It has five-speed transmission and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. The coil springs are equipped with anti-roll bars, and the independent front and rear suspension come with A-arms.

This is the best-restored version available today. It still has its original body, engine and drivetrain, and it’s even finished in its original colours. Although many Miuras have been authentically restored, this one has gone through a unique process that has involved hands-on craftsmanship by the same men who knew this model when it was the newest and freshest thing on the market. Valentino Balboni, the former chief test driver of Lamborghini, has overseen all the restoration work.
