    If she did not own the Miura she had a picture taken with it [note the after market wiper blades],the picture of the cars outside Alie Street was taken around 68/69. Bob never started working for Lamborghini UK until the early 70s,I got interested in the picture because of the Espadas,it was always thought no HEX dash RHD cars were built,the picture proves that wrong

    The Miura featured in the film for quite a few minutes. I saw it when it was first broadcast and don't think it was ever repeated unfortunately, as it was a good film.

    It is a shame that the full film is not available anywhere. Have just been looking. The BBC do not have it on their archive and the British Film Institute have no record either. There are just the clips on Youtube with no sound. I guess the link to the film came from a previous owner, who had the car in the UK.

    The history file is great (if you speak Swedish it would help though...). Yes it has had some mods ( plenty of fire extinguishers) , but very useable if you wanted, but as you say a solid base for a restoration if that is what you want, everything is fixable, just needs the money. But equally, if you just wanted to use it without worry of a stone chip .. Sold quickly too. Miura prices solid across the board, top cars must be big big wedge if they ever come for sale.

    #5090 has red leather interior...

    so it is #4990 belonging to Swiss collector !

    Correct, imaged on the occasion of its 1997 Brooks Auction where Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage bought the car.

    I put more miles on this Miura SV Jota than he did!

    Thanks for correction, so is this the Shah Persia's SV-J ?

    It was belonging to collector Andrea before and changed recently ownership...

    Here is the period Ad of the Brooks auction sale - Geneva, march 1997 . Yes, former Shah d'Iran car, bought by actor N. Cage.
    Record sale price ever reached for a Miura at that time : sold for $497,500 USD = 3 times the estimate.

    I was binge watching Jay Leno's Garage a few weeks back and Jay said something I found very true from my experiences. He stated most cars he has purchased that were advertised as restored in fact needed a proper restoration.
    It does not make economic sense for a dealer to do a nut and bolt project, they can't get their money back was his claim. I agree completely. There are exceptions of course but for the most part make them look pretty and sell it.

    Enzo Moruzzi & Miura SV circa 1980 at the factory in Sant Agata, should be easy to figure out which one this is.

    Yes, very easy to figure out which one it is : its chassis number starts by a 4 and it ends with a 6...

    Of Jean-Claude there are some from the 1982 Monaco GP but not of Patrick.
    There is one of Patrick with a red countach at his house at Lac Leman, but that was not his own car, one of the Codeco SA cars.

    Patrick is the ultimate International Man of Mystery and few images exist of him anywhere, he is quite a reclusive gentleman, preferring to shun the limelight. I had to coax him into sending me a current image of him which we could use in the July 2017 Classic & Sports Car magazine article for the interview section. He has some personal images that I hope to get one day, but the best chance we have of a good image of him and a Countach will be the next time he is here in the USA - hopefully.
