The 1976 Countach LP400, chassis #1120204, is part-way through its complete restoration by Lamborghini Polo Storico. Every part of the vehicle has been disassembled and overhauled, including the matching-numbers engine.
The car is now being repainted in its original yellow colour using paint from manufacturer PPG, and subjected to paint tests and hand polishing before the car is reassembled. Components are replaced as necessary using Lamborghini original spare parts ensuring the car’s authenticity. Its interior in original Tabacco color is being refurbished.
The 1967 Miura P400, chassis #3264, represents a comprehensive 10-month restoration project carried out by Lamborghini Polo Storico.
Using the original production documents for this particular car stored in the company’s archives, the Miura’s body in original Verde Scandal has been brought back to its original lines, along with restoration of the chassis and electrical, braking and cooling systems. The interior has been rebuilt, bringing it back to its original colour. The dashboard has also been restored to its authentic colour of Testa di Moro by Lamborghini Polo Storico’s specialists.
Starting in November 2016, the Miura’s restoration was finished by August 2017, when the car went on to win first prize in the Miura P400 class at the first Lamborghini & Design Concorso d’Eleganza held in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in September last year.
The Miura and Countach are just two of the latest cars currently under restoration by Lamborghini Polo Storico, alongside models including LM002, Espada, Jarama, Islero and Diablo.
Lamborghini Polo Storico is the specialist department located within Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, committed to the restoration and certification of classic Lamborghini cars out of production for at least 10 years (from 350 GT to Diablo); the preservation of archives and records; and the provision of original Lamborghini spare parts for classic cars, covering over 65 percent of the classic carpark, and increasing the number of reintroduced parts year-on-year. A further 200 part numbers were added to its catalogues in 2017 alone.
