Profile

The one off Jota was developed by legendary Lamborghini test driver Bob Wallace as a potential Miura race car. An additional 100bhp was extracted from the Miura's V12, while an amazing 400 Kg weight saving was made through the use of lightweight materials. The resulting top speed was 190mph, unthinkable back in 1970.

Visiually similar to the standard Miura road car, the Jota was in fact quite different with a new chassis, suspension, brakes, steering and even an LSD.

Although initially keen to race against arch rival Enzo Ferrari, company founder Ferrucio changed his mind, and the Jota was sold. Unfortunately it was subsequently destroyed after a serious crash in 1971, before being rebuilt in 2008 (although having taken over a decade) by a Lamborghini enthusiast, using remanufactured parts but with the original salvaged V12 engine.

Despite there being one one 'true' Jota, a handful of SVs were modified to Jota spec by the factory (to be known as SVJs), one of which recently fetched almost $2 million at auction.
