As a tribute to my favorite Lamborghini forum, I'm announcing my purchase of Miura S 4593 here, so fellow "Early V12" readers Fred and JRV can get the scoop.

Attached is a picture I borrowed from miuraregister.com. When I get the chance, I'll take a few photos alongside 5018 and post them in the garage.

Drool.... I'd love to make a 11" x 17" centerfold of that for the calendar. Need a killer background and it's done.

Congrats Thomas! It's just beautiful. And I recognize the brickwork, is that Monterey?

Can't wait to see more pix -- nice one! :D

Congrats XS10!

Great Miura!

Those bricks do look familiar. I can find out where they are from.

I am curious about something. Is it really true that you can send a Miura SV back to the factory to get JOTA engine updates?

If so, that would be awesome!

Yes, the brickwork is from Monterey, where the car was auctioned to the last owner 2 years ago. He reconditioned the electrics, brakes, ignition, clutch, and carbs before selling it to me.

The car is a late S with vented discs. It's mechanically and electrically sorted, but does not have any real pedigree, which is basically why I bought it. This way I can drive it without worries.

RE: Miura SVJ Upgrades - Actually, all of these additions can be done by a competent shop, but I do believe the factory does do (expensive) restorations of cars in it's works department.
