Completed on October 29, 1971, this P400 SV, chassis no. 4912, was originally finished in Bleu Medio over a Pelle Bleu interior and was shipped new to the U.S. through Modena Car U.S.A.
Notably, it was the only Miura SV to be finished in that color. It is one of 11 single-sump Miura SVs to be fitted from new by the factory with optional air conditioning and one of just five examples equipped as such delivered stateside.
Since returning from many years in Japan, it has been the recipient of a full cosmetic restoration to original colors by Bodie Stroud, and mechanical work was done by the owner’s personal shop, which services many street and race cars. During this time, the engine was reported to have strong compression, so only top-end work was carried out. All electronics were looked after, and even a correct SV steering column was sourced. Since completion, it has been shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the San Marino Motor Classic, and the Father’s Day show on Rodeo Drive. When shown, it was only for display and not judged.
