The Lamborghini Miura SV was officially unveiled in March 1971, on the Carrozzeria Bertone stand at the Geneva Motor Show. On the same occasion, the Countach LP 500 was presented, defined as a concept car for future production.  The Miura SV, where V stands for veloce (super fast), was conceived to accompany the S version but, as a result of the SV’s huge success on the market, it actually ended up replacing it.

The Miura SV, now the most sought-after production car made by Lamborghini, is considered the highest expression of the “supercar” concept of its time and the best of all the Miura versions produced. Giampaolo Dallara and Paolo Stanzani, Lamborghini’s chief engineers at the time and the creators of the Miura and Miura S, confirmed that the SV version benefitted from the experience gained during the first five years of Miura production.
