Looking for a Christmas gift for a fan of Rod's

We guarantee they won't have one of these in there collection

posted by Mike Walton



Here is something that would improve any Rod fans collection..unfortunately it is not a prize for the next SMILER TARTAN party, Although we could probably get Rod to sign it for you if you buy it!

Rod's old Lamborghini Miura is coming up for sale this weekend

Released in 1965, itís thought by many to be the first ever supercar, and like Rod it still looks as good as it did back in the day.

This car was registered in 1971 and Rod owned the car for a few years, before passing through various keepers until the 1980s. Itís had the same owner since, someone who upgraded it from standard, 370bhp Miura S form to a Miura SV, which involved upgraded bodywork, brakes and suspension.

Its engine, chassis and bulkhead all retain their original numbers, though, and a recent restoration has seen the Miuraís factory Blue Notte paint and black leather interior back to full health. The whole process cost £70,000, and also included an overhaul for the wiring, dashboard instruments and some laser-alignment for the steering and suspension.

Has that got you interested? maybe your partner would buy you an early Christmas present?, but make sure they take a cheque book as the the car is expected to fetch £800,000-900,000 at Coysí Alexandra Palace auction in London on Saturday.
