An orange Lamborghini Miura P400 is driven over the Great St. Bernard Pass with exceptional style by a “free agent” Italian criminal, played by Rossano Brazzi, who has devised an armored car robbery to take place in the crowded streets of the Turin.
The two Miuras starred in the movie, and the car in the drive sequence was not even destroyed. For 50 years, collectors have attempted to identify without question which car was the star.
