Chassis 3829 has perhaps one of the most interesting and revered histories of all Miuras. This car was given as a gift from Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis to his friend and favourite singer of the time, Stamatis Kokotas in the early 1970s.

Kokotas heyday was the late 1960s and 1970s when, besides selling a large number of records, he toured the USA and appeared on American television and is still a house hold name today in his native Greece. Besides being a singer, Kokotas was an accomplished rally driver and was a keen connoisseur of fast motor cars with a fine collection in the 1970s.

Kokotas drove the car in the early 1970s and in '72 suffered a problem with the engine which was removed from the Miura and returned to the Lamborghini factory for repair. Engineless, the car was stored in the underground car park of the Athens Hilton and remained there until the hotel underwent reconstruction in 2003 in preparation for the 2004 Olympic Games.

It was then moved to another underground garage where it has remained since. The engine, at the Lamborghini factory since it was removed in 1972, underwent a restoration, unlike the car was displayed in the factory museum until 2 weeks ago. This re conditioned engine is now with the car, after an absence of some 40 years but is not installed.
As a gift from one of the world's richest and extravagant men, this is was no ordinary Miura S. Firstly the car had the optional air conditioning, was personalised with unique engraved alloy air vents, engraved passenger grab handle, gear lever, electric window switch and ignition switch surrounds and a highly detailed engraved steering wheel boss.

Other unique details include the exterior 'eyelash' headlight surrounds made from alloy along with a unique grill and four extra driving lights mounted centrally below the grill.

It is finished in a fantastic period shade of metallic brown which is in good order despite it not being driven for 40 years and the original tan interior is also in good order, no doubt helped by the dry Greek climate..
