Few days in the past the 2nd version of THE ICE passed off on the frozen lake of St.Moritz, Switzerland. This motoring occasion and Worldwide Concours d’Class had an unbelievable lineup of traditional and racing vehicles.

Automobili Lamborghini’s heritage division “Polo Storico” began the corporate’s sixtieth anniversary celebration right here on the lake with the one-off Miura P400 S “Millechiodi”.

“The ICE was an awesome alternative for Polo Storico,” remarked Alessandro Farmeschi, Lamborghini’s International After Gross sales Director, “as a result of it brings collectively main worldwide collectors and their extraordinary classic vehicles in a wide ranging location.

A spotlight of the concours d’class was the Miura P400 S “Millechiodi”, a automotive significantly cherished by Lamborghini Polo Storico due to its particular historical past and since it bears the increasingly-coveted Certification of Historic Authentication: a recognition issued by Polo Storico for autos modified throughout their interval of use with ascertained historical past and historic significance.

This instance, a 1969 Miura P400 S, chassis quantity 4302, left Sant’Agata Bolognese in November 1969, painted Blu Notte (darkish blue). Following a sequence of Italian homeowners, in 1975 it turned the property of Giovanni Sotgiu and Walter Ronchi, two necessary names in Lamborghini historical past as a result of, along with their work on the “Lamborcar” dealership in Milan, they had been the primary homeowners of Bob Wallace’s Miura Jota. Exactly within the spirit of recreating the Jota, the 2 rework the 400 S, broken in an accident, into one thing far more racer-like. After an enormous funding their Miura, now painted in Verde Scuro (darkish inexperienced), is prepared. It used so many rivets to affix the physique panels that the identify Millechiodi (a thousand nails), got here naturally. The automotive was restored in 2018 and licensed by Lamborghini Polo Storico in 2020.

The rear part of the automotive reminds to the up to date Porsche 917, whereas double rear taillights, fairly just like these utilized in that interval in Italy, had been mounted as a substitute of Miura manufacturing facility lights. However, the exhaust pipes and the rear finish had been just like the official constructed Jotas. The actual type of the rear wheelarches eases the automotive to be acknowledged without delay from a lateral view, even when the car has already a well-defined kind at his again. On the entrance now we have Carello headlights with plexiglass cowl and a full-width spoiler: immediately the fast refueling tank cap, mounted on the manufacturing facility “Jotas” is lacking. The entire inside has bought SV styled upholstery and gear.

A exceptional fuse and relais field is mounted in entrance of the passengers’ seat. So far as the repainting is worried, the 2 former homeowners determined to make use of “British racing inexperienced” shade hue. Particular technical traits of the engine will not be recognized: we discover lengthy aspiration trumpets (with out air filter bins) and a free movement exhaust system. The engine has an 4.100 cc displacement, particular camshafts and valves. The engine no. 2511, now mounted on the Millechiodi, was initially mounted on a Miura P 400 delivered to the identical “Lamborauto” dealership. These days we don’t have additional details about the primary gear engine (having n. 30437), changed at an unknown time. “Millechiodi” (“Thousandnails”) refers back to the many rivets that has been used on the automotive. This identify, at the side of the car itself represents the identification.
