Left: A couple of SVs outside the factory. It's interesting to see the factory in such a crude state which is quite a contrast to the modern facility. During the Miura years, there was little extravagance and employees complained of never having adequate resources. The "REPARTO ASSISTENZA CLIENTI" sign translates to "Unit Attendance Customers". Right: August 1968 factory photo, which looks peaceful and calm since the factory was on vacation. A number of front engine drivetrains, likely destined for the Espada, share floor space with Miura powerplants.

P400 Brochure

The Miura P400 brochure was eight pages, all in Italian. If you are so inclined, babelfish.altavista.com can provide you with Italian to English translations. The only exception was the back cover which listed the specifications in Italian, French, English and German. Click here to download a detailed view of the english portion. Except for page seven, all the illustrations were in color. Click on the page number captions to download a high resolution image.

Note the front cover. We presume that the Bull is a Miura, one of the Spanish fighting breed from which the Lamborghini got it's name. There is a strong chain tether on the bull connected to somebody or something secure just off camera. Since the Miura (car) was a prototype with easily damaged thin aluminum bodywork, it must have been a nervous time whenever the bull was near the it!

SV Brochure

There also was a four page brochure that covered the SV. All three Lamborghini models at the time - the Miura, Jarama and Espada were covered. A similar brochure was available for the S; the only difference was the specifications listing.

The bottom of page four carried an ad for Sprint 2000, a motor oil additive from Agip. The word is that the ad paid for the production costs of the brochure.
