This particular 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, bearing the chassis number 3378, is a flawless example that has undergone meticulous restoration work, featuring coachwork by Bertone. It is believed to have been showcased at the prestigious 1968 Geneva Motor Show when it was brand new. The car originally boasted a stunning Rosso Miura (Miura Red) exterior finish paired with black vinyl upholstery—an identical color combination to the very first Miura P400 unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show.

Having been in the possession of collectors since its inception, chassis 3378 has traversed through several notable custodians in various countries, including Switzerland, South Africa, Germany, Italy, England, and Belgium, from 1968 until 2016. Eventually, it found its way to the United States. In recent years, this classic P400 underwent a comprehensive restoration by the highly regarded Italian automotive shop, Cairati Milano. Subsequently, it obtained certification from Lamborghini Polo Storico, further attesting to its authenticity and quality.

Retaining its original matching-numbers engine and body panels, chassis 3378 is accompanied by a wealth of documentation, books, a tool kit, and additional accessories. The fortunate buyer of this exceptional Miura P400 will be delighted to find it in pristine show-quality condition, ready to make a remarkable appearance at the most prestigious concours d’Elegance events and automotive gatherings around the world.

Gooding & Company has estimated the sale value of this 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 to be between $2,000,000 and $2,400,000 USD. With such a storied history, immaculate restoration, and prestigious certification, it is no wonder that this rare Lamborghini is expected to attract significant attention from passionate collectors and enthusiasts alike. Its auction appearance at the Pebble Beach Auctions will undoubtedly be a highlight of the event, as attendees eagerly anticipate the opportunity to own a piece of automotive history and experience the exhilaration of the iconic Miura P400 firsthand.
