That motor was restored by and is owned by Jeff Stephan...worlds greatest Miura restorer. A perfect SV motor sitting in front of a perfect Miura S and an SV. He did absolute miracles with my Miura SV this last spring.
Just love the look of those Weber's, and those 12 throats.
Seems that with modern engines these days, all you look at is a couple of boring looking plenum chamber (boxes) on top of the engine, if your lucky. Most cars have a big plastic cover over the engine, and that's as good as it gets.
At least with my Gallardo the plenums are impressively big, black, and have "Lamborghini" nicely machined on them. Better than the little plenums on the F360 that you can see through the transparent engine cover. Can't see why they bothered - not much to look at, at all.
Mmmmm Weber I was going to put a Weber on my 2.3 but I'm selling the car anyway so it doesn't matter... I'll just recommend whoever buys it to put one on it. I'm gonna miss that car it was my first car that I owned.
Here's a shot of my Miura SV motor after Jeff's work. It runs GREAT now...it's also a lot less noisy (not FUN noise, loose stuff noise) than it was before he finished with it. LOTS of other work on the car. Honestly, if we didn't have Mr. Stephan around to keep these cars sorted out, I would sell mine in a minute.
