Note, when the Miura is pushed over the edge and tumbles down you can clearly see that it is an empty chassis! No engine!

It`s cheaper to destroy an empty chassis rather than the whole car. It saves the movie production team alot of money. :hello:

After the Miura chassis was pushed over, someone stole it over night, because when the production team went and looked, there was no chassis!

Comes in second in my opinion, but I do agree that the Corvette is beautifal (1968, especially)

I like Corvettes until 62, later they adopt a Formula Indy aspect, too boxy.

This sequence is the greatest film scene ever (apart from the destruction of course :p)

The Miura pushed over the cliff was already an insurance right off with a severly bent chassis that could not be used on the road ever again.It had been repanelled and painted to look like a usable car,hence the lack of an engine.

The number plate used in the film is BO 296.

I think this is a "trade plate" as the car was hired for a 3 days filming in August 1968.

I have a black and white still from a film crew member as they are mounting a camera to the bonnet to film part of the opening sequence filmed on the St Bernard Pass

Yes - but not with Matt @%*~úing Monro on the soundtrack. Imagine the film sequence with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qovk67yMiFI instead.

The "wreck" that was used as the car after it's run in with a bulldozer was second-hand Miura P400 that was involved in a rather nasty accident a few days before filming.

The uncrashed one is claimed to be a 1968 - http://www.cheshireclassiccars.co.uk/classic-cars-for-sale/1968

"Factory original 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, chassis number 3586, finished in Arancio Miura (Miura Orange) with a fully original Pelle Bianco leather interior. Completed for delivery on 2nd July 1968 and just 5 owners from new. This stunning car is a "Second Series" P400 with the superior (less flexible) 1mm thick chassis. It has recorded 19,000km and is in show condition. This is a fantastically original and preserved car. A new engine block was fitted in 2011 (due to a hairline crack); the original matching-numbers block comes with the car. It also received a concours-standard paintwork refresh at the same time, but is in all other respects time-warp pristine original.

This stunning Miura, one of only three "Arancio Miura" cars built in 1968, and the only one with a white leather interior, is now acknowledged to be the actual car used in the iconic opening sequence of the 1969 movie, "The Italian Job". It was driven by factory client manager Enzo Moruzzi to the Gran San Bernardo pass in Italy for 3 days' filming, returned to the factory and dispatched to the Lamborghini dealer Zani on 2nd July 1968. The car and the story of its recovery was featured in the May 2015 edition of the Octane magazine. Arguably, the most famous Lamborghini ever made, and a serious potential entrant into the worlds most prestigious 'preservation class' concours events."

The Lamborghini Miura is one of the most beautiful and awesome cars ever made. Too bad that this one crashes and is pushed over the cliff. :(

Still I find it very upsetting to see an expensive sports car get wrecked or destroyed. :(

There were actually two Miuras in this scene. The one that was driven was later sold as a new car, while the other one had already been wrecked.
