Bids flood in for unrestored Miura and ex-WRC Lancia Delta S4 Rally
Leading the pack was the sensational sale of a supremely original 1969 Lamborghini Miura, smashing its pre-auction estimate to achieve an outstanding £1.24 million. Offered without reserve and believed to be one of the very last unrestored Miuras in existence, the sale of chassis no. 4245 was a rare opportunity to obtain an unrestored car of this ilk. Sold to its second owner in 1974 and stored in a German barn until recently, the Miura P400 S was presented in the beautiful combination of Giallo Flay yellow paint with Skay Bleu dark blue interior.
Also popular on the night was the 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Rally. One of only four Delta S4s to have won an event in the World Rally Championship, the Abarth Classiche-certifield example had been painstakingly restored to its factory specification and took a prominent position on the auction stage. Reaching the higher end of its estimate, the Group B icon changed hands for £764,375.
