Evaluation: Exhaust residue on the rear body valence around the dummy tips. Banged up wheel nut wings but good paint on the wheels. Good paint with some flaws and scrapes from interference fits on moving panels. Minor trim chrome issues of little consequence. Good upholstery and interior trim and crisp gauges. Clean, orderly engine compartment and chassis. Returned to its original SV configuration after a period as an SVJ clone and restored to high-quality driver condition.
Bottom Line: The P400 SV is the ultimate Miura, worth nearly double the value of an “ordinary” P400 S. Pursued to just over its low estimate, this is a solid Miura SV that impressed bidders sufficiently to bring a generous price that the seller should be happy with, but not so much that the buyer woke up the next morning with any meaningful regrets.
