Year 1969
RHD, delivered new on 26.06.1969 to a Rhodesian owner, Basil Christodoulatos, believed to be one of the first, if not the first Lamborghini in Southern Africa. Later noted with Peter Zambelis of Umtali. Believed to have been owned by John Guthrie in the early 1970s. Suffered from a bit of abuse when owned by Franz Kirsten and subsequent owners (reversed at high speed one night into a bush at the Royal Salisbury Golf Club). Offered for sale at various car yards in Salisbury. Acquired at some stage by Sotes Divaris, the son of Dr. Divaris, for $8000. Some repairs done by Manie Koutsadakis. The car was also taken to Cape Town where a specialist fitted SV Cams. In the 2000s the car was noted in Surrey, UK with Gregg Govier - Red with black interior. Prod. #334. 26 June 1969. Miura S. RHD. Gold sills & wheels. Originally yellow. Ex-South Africa, Rhodesia. Fitted with a 'S' badge but not listed as an 'S' in any literature.
