Miura Roadster resurfaces

Lamborghini only ever built one Miura Roadster... and it's suddenly become available in Switzerland.

The car appeared at the 1968 Brussels Auto Salon and created a huge amount of interest - Ferrucio Lamborghini, however, felt that a Roadster didn't fit in with the GT philosophy of the Miura (a lot of torsional rigidity would lost, plus the ensuing claims for hearing loss due to the open-top proximity of the mighty V12 would probably be more than Sant'Agata's legal division could cope with), so Bertone never even got around to designing a roof for it.

Fast forward forty years and it's up for auction. If you need to ask how much it is, you probably can't afford it.
