Sir Rod was the first owner of this 1971 P400S, ordering it new from Lamborghini Concessionaires Ltd of Alie Street, London. The right-hand drive UK spec car came with options including factory air-conditioning and seatbelts.
Coys, which is auctioning the car at its inaugural sale during the Classic & Sports Car Show this weekend, says the Miura comes with its original records (not the vinyl sort!) and a copy of a photo of Stewart’s then girlfriend, model Dee Harrington, with two Miuras, one of which is an S with this car’s original British registration, JLL 831K.
Miuras and music royalty have always gone together. Other famous owners of “the first supercar” have included Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis. Sir Rod, though, didn’t keep the car long, and it has had a few owners since those heady ‘70s days of Maggie May et al.
