One of the most famous Miuras is the example that starred in the opening sequence of the 1969 movie Italian Job. A destroyed Miura was shown later in the movie but it is unlikely that the movie producers used a fully functional example of such a valuable machine for that purpose. However, which Miura was exactly used in the opening scenes remained a mystery. On the fifth anniversary of the famous movie, this mystery was finally solved by Lamborghini Polo Storico after the company's heritage department were asked to investigate the orange Miura, chassis 3586, that is part of the Kaiser Collection from Vaduz, Liechtenstein. This was done by going through the company archives and also by talking to former employees like Enzo Moruzzi, who drove the Miura to and from the movie set back in 1969. It turned out that the Miura used for the scenes later in the movie was an already damaged example. When Paramount Pictures approached Lamborghini for a matching, fully functioning Miura. Chassis 3586 matched the car in every respect and was almost ready on the production line. Following its use in the movie, the car was returned to Lamborghini and sold to its first private owner in Rome, Italy. After changing hands several times, it was eventually acquired by Fritz Kaiser in 2018. Shortly thereafter, the car's legendary lineage was discovered and confirmed by Lamborghini.
