The Miura Jota was a personal toy project of Development Driver Bob Wallace. The car was use to test new ideas that would eventually find their way into the production Miura SV's. Only one was built but the car was so powerful that special customers began to request their own versions after the original was eventually sold and destroyed in an accident. The SVJ's built by the factory were not exact copies of the Jota, though many had performance upgrades and carried many of the visual details of the Jota. Only 6 SVJ's were built during the production of the Miura and can rightly be called "factory SVJ's."
