Sant’Agata Bolognese/Goodwood, 27 June 2016 – A Miura SV restored by Lamborghini PoloStorico was awarded ‘overall winner’ in the Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d’Elegance at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016, in the year that Automobili Lamborghini celebrates the Miura’s 50th anniversary.
Miura chassis #4846 is the original Miura SV shown at the 1971 Geneva motor show, and the subject of a full restoration by Lamborghini’s specialist restoration center, PoloStorico.
Enrico Maffeo, head of Lamborghini PoloStorico, received the prize from Laurent Feniou, managing director of Cartier UK. The nine-strong judging panel included Lapo Elkann; Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari’s vice president of design; Sir Jonathan Ive, Apple’s chief design officer; and designer Marc Newson.
“We are very proud that the first full restoration by Lamborghini PoloStorico collects this award from the Cartier Style et Luxe concours event,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “Goodwood Festival of Speed is an event that celebrates the passion that so many have for all things automotive, both past and present, and Lamborghini is proud to be a part of this.”
Goodwood’s Lord March took the wheel of a Huracán Spyder, alongside Stefano Domenicali, in the Michelin Supercar Run, in which a Huracán Avio also went ‘up the hill’. On its stand Automobili Lamborghini displayed the Aventador Miura Homage, a limited edition of 50 units produced to celebrate the Miura’s 50th anniversary, together with a Huracán Super Trofeo, Huracán Spyder and the special edition Huracán Avio.
Also on display in the Cartier Style et Luxe was a Lamborghini class celebrating designer Marcello Gandini’s ‘Raging Bulls’, which included an Espada, Countach, Jarama, Silhouette and Diablo.
