Lamborghini PoloStoricoÂ restored the pre-production model of Lamborghini Miura Super Veloce displayed at the 1971 Geneva Motor show.Â The fully restored chassis #4846 SV was on display at the Amelia Island concours event (USA) from 10 to 13Â March.Â The 1971 model had parts from the previous Miura S and also had new features which were later seen in the subsequent SVs.
Automobili Lamborghini opened the PoloStorico (translates to â€œHistorical Hubâ€ in Italian) in its hometown of Santâ€™Agata Bolognese, Italy with the objective of restoring and maintaining the integrity of the historic models that the factory has produced. The PoloStorico has archives of documentation which includes the technical drawings, colors of bodies and material used. In addition to restoration of historic models, archive management, PoloStorico offers original spare parts and official certification for these cars. Also, former employees of Automobili Lamborghini help out the team at Santâ€™Agata Bolognese to restore the models.
Speaking on the restoration project, Enrico Maffeo, Head of PoloStorico, said,
This is the year in which the Lamborghini Miura celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. This car not only illustrates the iconic appeal of the Miura, widely acknowledged as the forerunner of modern super sports models, but is also a perfect example of the expertise available in PoloStorico in providing the most authentic Lamborghini restorations.
The #4846 Verde Metallizata (Metallic Green) SV has been subject to comprehensive research to reproduce the Miura to its original condition. Hence, PoloStorico used expert craftsmanship, original blueprints and components throughout to bring the model to its authentic state.
We are delighted to be able, with the consent of the owner, to show this car for the first time. And in its perfectly restored state, at the important Amelia Island event. This is a very important car, not only for its place in history as the Geneva show car and the forerunner of future Miura SV models built, but as the first completed project of PoloStorico.
Enrico Maffeo, said.
Earlier in 2006, Italian Sport scar manufacturer Ferrari established Ferrari Classiche to provide restoration services for its classic Ferraris.
