A Lamborghini Miura isn’t exactly a common barn find. After all, if you own a Miura, you tend to remember having it. But the rarity of that situation (combined with the rarity of the car itself) is part of what makes this particular Miura so special.
In an interview with Petrolicious, the current owner says his 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 originally belonged to one of his grandmother’s cousins. He worked on it himself, drove it regularly, and even commuted in it. But unfortunately, a brake and clutch repair in the late ’80s coincided with the death of his mother, and the car ended up sitting for the next 25 years.
When the family finally pulled the car out of the garage, they were faced with a tough decision. Should they do a full restoration, or leave it in its original condition? Eventually, they decided against a full restoration. It was worn out because it had been driven, and it wouldn’t be fitting to turn it into a museum piece.
And even though it isn’t perfect, it still looks spectacular and is full of character. The photographer who put together the video below also has a ton of photos of the car on his website.
We have to say, we’re incredibly jealous of this guy. Why don’t we have an uncle with a Miura in his garage?
