    Just came across this pic and thought I would post it. Purple must be a custom color? It looks great in my opinion!

    I love it. Lmbos have always been crazy colors, I think. I think the Miura looks great in lime green and orange.

    I dont believe thats a real SV. I believe it is a rebodied S that was widened to an SV. If you look at the fenderwells you can see the suspension doesnt matche. The owner of the car, which has had it for sale for some time, Claims that this may be a prototype body, but I have no idea of if there is any verification of this.

    This is going to sound crazy... but didn't Nicolas Cage have a P400 SV like this car?

    Nick Cage owned an SVJ, which was the sister car to my SV, both made for the Shan of Iran. He just sold it last month.

    The orange car posted is not the pic of the Cage SVJ that sold. The car pictured is a normal SV.

    The SVJ that Cage recently sold was a the first of the five SVJs built by the factory. The car was built at the end of '71 for the Shah of Iran. It had fix headlights and a large front spoiler, and outside filler cap. This was the second car supplied to the shah earlier that year. The first car the factory built for the Shah was the car that I currently own. My car #4870, was built for the Shah as a "special SV" which had the apperance of a normal SV on the outside with a special factory 450 HP jota spec engine. (I have a copy of the original bench test figures-the car was bench tested on March 23, 1971- three days after I was born!)

    If you go to yahoo and type "miura sv, shan of iran" the two shah of iran miuras will pop up. You will see websites on both cars with great photos and accurate histories on both the SVJ and my car, #4870.

    I'm not sure how to link the site but you call pull it up on any search engine.
