Rare 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV/J To Be Auctioned Off

Written by tonks on July 18, 2008

Lamborghini Miura SV/JThose who are true lovers of the Lamborghini will remember the Miura. The Lamborghini Miura became Lamborghini’s most popular supercar during the 60’s and 70’s. If you really know your history then you will also remember the Miura Jota and the SV/J models that spawned from it. The Jota was one of Lamborghini’s more rare models and was created in 1970 to test out new ideas that they had for the Miura SV.

The model had a lightweight body built with a split pump engine, extra vents, and the ‘megaphono’ exhaust pipes. When the car was completed it was delivered to its customer. The Jota on the other hand was destroyed in an accident.

However, when several of Lamborghini’s customers heard about the car, they asked if they could buy one of their own. Lamborghini decided not to officially build a production Jota, but they did offer conversions based on the SV model. The Lamborghini Registry lists only six “works” SV/J models, all featuring the Jota bodywork.

The one we have shown here is listed with the chassis number 4892 and is set to be auctioned off during the Russo and Steele classic car auction. We have not been told the estimate that it could sell for – but because it is such a rare supercar we can imagine that it will be a hefty sum.
