1972 AMS Lamborghini Miura V12 Prototipo Racecar

Information wanted! The AMS with V12 Lamborghini Miura engine was a one-off prototype built in 1972 for an American Gentleman who was planning to participate into European Sportscar racing. We are looking for all information available on this unique prototype. Please contact us on:

- Owner history from 1973 till 1978
- Articles (all languages)
- Engine Number
- Images

From the initiator of the car: I was in Modena, Italy, sitting around talking with a friend who was a retired race car driver and he currently built exotic car bodies under contract, his name was Piero Drogo. He lived in Modena with his wife. I asked him if he could assist me in creating a Lamborghini Prototype racecar that I could drive in the European Group 7 series.

Drogo mentioned to have contacts with Gianni Segiu, Director of Production or Sales at the Lamborghini Factory. This was early 1972. Drogo said he could help me get a new Muira SV Engine for the new prototype racecar I had in mind. So I said go ahead and get me a price. Within about 2 weeks he showed me a picture of a new Muira SV engine on a wooden palette.

I accepted the offer contingent on Drogo helping me find a company that would agree to build the prototype racecar using that Muira SV engine. A couple of nights later while sitting around eating at Drogo's place, he said that he had found a builder for my new Lamborghini prototype racecar! It turned out to be Engineer Tancredi Simonetti who was the lead race car engineer at the AMS Factory in Bologna.
