Italian Job Miura found, Jean Todt's Miura SV and more on the new BMW M8 ...

In the opening sequences of the legendary movie the Italian Job from 1969, a Lamborghini Miura is one of the stars. For many years Lamborghini Miura enthusiasts pursued this famous car, which was seemingly crashed on the Great Saint Bernhard pass. As it turned out, it was not destroyed and Lamborghini's heritage department, Polo Storico, have certified that this Miura was the one used in the movie. For the crashed car, an existing wreck was used. Acquired by the Kaiser Collection in 2018, it was shortly thereafter sent to Lamborghini Polo Storico for the detailed investigation that determined that chassis 3586 is in fact the Miura used in the Italian Job.
Another Miura recently entrusted to Polo Storico was this SV that was unveiled post restoration at Retromobile earlier this year. Due to its chassis number, it was long believed to be a Miura S updated to SV specifications but it was only recently discovered that a chassis number from an earlier crashed car was re-used to avoid crippling import taxes into South Africa. Once the full history was discovered, the Miura SV was meticulously restored to its original configuration and colours by Lamborghini's in-house restoration department.
We are inching closer to the release of the new BMW M8, which prompted the German manufacturer to release further teaser images and some details.
