1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Jota Goes Under the Hammer

October 27 will be a special day for the true automotive connoisseurs with enough money on their hands to roam auction houses across the globe. On that date, most of them will be probably attending the Automobiles of London auction, organized by RM, so that they may have a chance to snatch a very special item: a 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Jota.

For those who are not all that connoisseur, we think it would be enough to say the model is only one of the five built by Lamborghini (chassis no. 4892 ) to honor the creation of test driver Bob Wallace, the Miura Privata. A trait which makes it very, very rare and very, very expensive.

RM Auctions says the model has been through a “no-expense-spared restoration,” performed by specialist Gary Bobileff. This trait too adds to the price of the model, which is expected and hoped to close at around 800,000-1,100,000 GBP ($1,25 million - $1,7 million/EUR980,000 – EUR1.3 million).

The fourth edition of the Automobiles of London auction will not be, of course, all about the rare Jota. The event will be packed with rare, unique and special vehicles, including James Bond’s actual Aston Martin DB5.

That is the one driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger and Thunderball, the single model remaining of the only two ever built. This car is much more expensive than the rare Jota, with the auction house hoping to get over 3.5 million GBP ($5 million, EUR3.93 million).
