Lamborghini Polo Storico is in Paris for the Retromobile classic car show, displaying an example of the rarest Miura - the SVJ.

The Miura SVJ on display is one of the only four original SVJs made by Lamborghini
4860 is the chassis number of the car in question, which was one of just four original SVJs made by the company. The SVJs are exceptional vehicles that were inspired by the Miura Jota and built by special request.

The Jota was a one-off that Test Driver Bob Wallace created with the goal of enabling the Miura to compete in races regulated by the FIA's 'Appendix J' for Touring Cars and GT Cars. The SVJ on display in Paris was built in 1973 for the German Racing Driver Hubert Hahne, who was the Lamborghini importer for Germany at the time.

It was painted black, with a white-black leather interior. In 1977 Hubert Hahne had the SVJ repainted silver by Lamborghini but kept the black interior. It has sported the same colour combination ever since. The vehicle remained in Germany until the early 2000s, when it became part of a Japanese collection. It has not been exhibited in public since then.

The Miura P400 S has been rebuilt from parts from Lamborghini's 'Certified Lines' service
On display alongside the Miura SVJ at Retromobile, will be a Miura P400 S built from spare parts - including bodywork, engine and suspension.

Lamborghini Polo Storico has taken especially great care over the reconstruction of the bodywork panels in order to ensure that the original shape is accurately recreated, with exactly the same dimensions.

This is all part of the 'Certified Lines' concept that will be showcased at the event. New genuine spare parts such as cylinder heads and bodywork are constantly being released by Lamborghini, providing ever great scope for the authenticity of classic Lamborghinis to be preserved while also allowing collectors to use their cars with complete peace of mind.
