In 1970, Lamborghini developed a Jota test mule that would conform to the FIA’s Appendix J racing regulations. The car was appropriately named the Miura Jota. However, this was the only mule ever built until customers heard about it and asked for it. At their request, Lamborghini has decided to develop five units of the Lamborghini Jota: two were built new and three were converted from existing SVs.
One of these five unique models is now available for order and will be auctioned off at the RM Auctions’ Automobiles of London auction event on October 27th. This Jota was extensively restored by marque specialist Gary Bobileff, and is expected to fetch between £800,000-£1,100,000 GBP, or roughly $1,243,000-$1,709,000.
Aside from the rare Jota, RM Auctions will also be auctioning off the sole remaining documented 007 Aston Martin DB5 movie car, Sir Stirling Moss’s Grand Prix-winning four wheel-drive 1961 Ferguson P99 Formula One racer, and a stunning six-cylinder 1936 MG NB Magnette Airline Coupe.
