Classic & Sports Car – Rod Stewart's Miura is coming up for sale

Check out this rather stunning piece of rock memorabilia that's going under the hammer.

A Lamborghini Miura once owned by singer/songwriter Rod Stewart is being sold at RM Sotheby's London auction at Battersea Evolution on 5 September, and it's estimated that it will go for between £1,200,000 and £1,400,000.

You can see it on the right in the image above, wearing the registration JLL 831K, with another Miura and Stewart's then-girlfriend, the model Dee Harrington.

In fact, this photo will be sold with the car, as will its original dealership documents and delivery note, which states that its spec includes air-con and seatbelts. Its full ownership history also comes with the car.

This example has benefited from an in-house restoration

Chassis number 4863, this 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S is a rare right-hand drive example that was delivered to Stewart in its year of manufacture, by Lamborghini Concessionaires Ltd of Alie Street in London.

This Miura has also been the subject of a recent and comprehensive restoration by Lamborghini’s in-house classic department, Polo Storico, which cost around €300,000 (around £265,000).

And if you want to feast your eyes on this beauty before the RM Sotheby's sale, this Miura will be entered into the Salon Privé Concours d’Elegance at Blenheim Palace (30 August-1 September).
