Lamborghini Miura SV: it celebrates its 50 years

In 2021, the Lamborghini Miura SV will celebrate its 50th anniversary! The opportunity to review the history of this sports coupe from the Sant’Agata Bolognese firm.

In March 1971, the Lamborghini Miura SV was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, at Bertone’s stand not far from the Countach LP 500, which was also making its first public appearance. The Miura SV, with a V like “Veloce” (fast in Italian), was designed to complement the S version but eventually replaced it, following its resounding success.

The Miura SV became Lamborghini’s most sought-after production car, and in its time was the epitome of supercars, crowning the Miura lineup. Giampaolo Dallara and Paolo Stanzani, Lamborghini’s chief engineers at the time and creators of the Lamborghini Miura and Miura S, confirmed that the SV benefited from the experience gained in the first five years of Miura production.

Lamborghini Miura SV: 385 horsepower under the hood

Raised in the rear central position, the 3.9-liter V12 engine of displacement was pushed on the Miura SV to 385 horsepower (at 7,850 rpm) and 400 Nm of torque (at 5,750 rpm), allowing the beautiful Italian to swallow the 0 to 100 km / h in less than 6 seconds

, and reach 290 km / h at top speed.

The SV also gets a stiffer chassis, strategic reinforcements, a revised rear suspension system with different anchor points and arms, and a 130mm track widening. The tires have been widened and the rim design has also been revised for a sportier style, as well as a characteristic gold finish. Aesthetically, the SV can be recognized by its wider rear fenders, its specific tail lights, its front headlamps devoid of “eyelashes”, as well as its front hood with a new air intake.

In 1973, only two years after the launch of its production and 150 copies out of the workshops of Lamborghini, the Miura SV has retired, thus contributing to its rarity. Recently, a 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV sold for 2.4 million euros at RM Sotheby’s last Paris auction.
