While prices for period rival Ferraris such as the Daytona have fallen back from their market peak, the Miura continues to grow, with the original P400 and its P400S successor up 13% and 11% respectively.
That means you’ll pay £460k-£850k for a P400 (pictured), and £550k-£1m for the P400S, depending on condition. It helps that only 765 of all three types of Miura were built – collectors prize scarcity – compared to just over 1400 365 GTB/4 Daytonas, but it helps that the Miura was a real game changer, defining the basic layout of every supercar since. It also appeals to buyers who see the Daytona, or any Ferrari, as too obvious.
You’ll find 14 pages of buying information in every issue of Classic Cars magazine, including Quentin Willson’s hot tips, Russ Smith’s market analysis, in-depth buying guides and Ads on Test.
