Bertone Lamborghini Miura Spyder


According to Joe Sackey’s ‘The Lamborghini Miura Bible’ – to be published later this year – it might just be the most exhibited Miura of all time. And it is up for sale now.


  
Lamborghini’s Miura may be a great Bertone-design – a coachbuilt car it isn’t. But there is an exception to the rule: the Lamborghini Miura Spyder. A one-off that was created by its original designer, Marcello Gandini, at Bertone.

Bertone Lamborghini Spyder


The open top roadster was first shown at the 1968 Brussels Salon where its unveiling even surprised Ferruccio Lamborghini. After the car was returned to the factory in Sant’Agatha it languished there for several years until sold to the International Lead and Zinc Research Organization (!) who commissioned the conversion as a showpiece for their products. In this guise the car was renamed ‘Zn75’ and toured the world. It was featured in numerous newspapers, magazines and television shows. After a life full of stardom the car retired in a dark green livery, with subtle chrome trim added all over the car, in several museums and collections around the world.

Over two years ago the Miura Roadster was entrusted to renowned specialist Gary Bobileff in California by an American collector with the sole purpose of returning it to exact, show-stopping ’68 specification. The resulting restoration took second in at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Goal achieved, obviously. It’s up for sale now.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
