The collector car world, and indeed the world at large, will be paying attention to RM Auctions’ Automobiles of London auction event on October 27 for one primary reason: This is when the sole remaining documented 007 Aston Martin DB5 movie car, complete with its spy gadgetry, will cross the block. Those who see beyond the Hollywood spectacle will find a treat like the 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Jota, which will share the Aston’s spotlight. This car is one of five built by Lamborghini to emulate the original “Miura Privata,” the race-prepared experimental model that Lamborghini test driver Bob Wallace created.
This Jota enjoyed a no-expense-spared restoration at the hands of marque specialist Gary Bobileff, and is expected to fetch between £800,000-£1,100,000 GBP, or roughly $1,243,000-$1,709,000. Other Automobiles of London show-stoppers will include 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.
