Upcoming: 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV at RM Sotheby's Amelia Island

Ok, just take a moment.

Are you drinking it in?  

All done?

You are looking at arguably the most beautiful thing on four wheels; the 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV.  This example, chassis No.4884 formerly owned by notable Lamborghini authority Joe Sackey (www.joesackey.com) is documented as the very first SV model imported to the United States.  The SV model, slotted between the standard P400, S and J (Jota) competition models was fully restored by the renowned Gary Bobileff of Gary Bobileff Automobiles between 2005 and 2006.  The Marcello Gandini-designed (he penned the car at age 27) Bertone body all but physically defines the term "supercar", which the Muira is credited with being the first mid-engine configured road car.

This concours car will be going on the block in March at RM Sotheby's Amelia Island auction.
