MIURA NO 0509

 

Miura no 0509 was the first Miura built on the second chassis. This Miura appeared at the 1966 march Geneva show, without the horizontals louvres and mirrors. These are believed to be fitted for the Paris show in october 1966. 0509 was the car that appeared on the first Miura brochure with the bull. 0509 also was the Miura that appeared at the 1966 Monaco Grand Prix with Bob Wallace and Louis Chiron. It was subsequently destroyed in an accident. It is interesting to note that the Bertone logos were fitted lower than on the second prototype, 0862.

 

 

 

 Photos of  0509 in its very first configuration. Note how the car sits high on its chassis.

Could these have been taken before the final completion of the car, before the Geneva show?

Theses photo comes from Road & Track, october 1966.
