Lamborghini Miura P400 SV
“Any well tuned Miura should produce 0 to 60 times of between 5.5 and 6.0 seconds, with a terminal velocity in the region on 170 mph, given ideal conditions”1 In total 148 SV Miuras were produced and the first 52 used a shared sump lubrication system for the transmission and engine while the later cars had split systems for reliability.
Eventually the oil crisis and lack of demand halted Miura production in 1973 after nearly 150 cars were completed.
