Every so often, we come across a vehicle we’d betray family for. This time, it’s the Lamborghini Miura, and not just any version (which we’d sell organs for, really) but the one from the original 1969 “The Italian Job” movie starring Michael Caine. In what amounts to the original supercar, the Miura was once called “the most beautiful car ever made” by none other than Enzo Ferrari. When the radical, rear mid-engined V12 stunner bowed, Paramount Pictures proposed its use in the film to the Sant’Agata, Italy exotic carmaker. Lambo agreed, and the car is the first star of the movie when it takes on Swiss Great St. Bernard Pass’s winding roads in the opening credits, and the rest is history. The car disappeared after filming but has resurfaced fully restored thanks to collector Fritz Kaiser and Lambo’s Polo Storico restoration. Even more significant is the fact that Enzo Moruzzi, the man who drove the car from factory to filming and helmed the Miura as the film’s stunt double, provided important details about the original car and its provenance. There might not be a more desirable version of the already coveted Miura on the face of God’s green earth.
