Trust your doctor when it comes to caring for your vintage supercar. This 1970 Miura S is owned by the Zürich-based gentleman racer and OB/GYN man Konstantin Ioannidis, and he does what few owners of very expensive vintage cars do. He takes his Miura out on the open road for regular drives.
I ran into Dr. Ioannidis at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in May, where his lovely red Miura shared the stage with Ferraris and an Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale in the category for early supercars.
It never ceases to amaze that this 40+ year old, highly experimental car is capable of ridiculous speeds, all of it intended for the public road. And the public road is precisely where this car is used. Dr. Ioannidis explained that not a week goes by that he doesn’t take his Miura for a drive around Zürich.
The roads are very nice around Zürich. Smooth, Swiss roads with elevation changes. Good for Dr. Ioannidis! Kids, if you’re reading this, consider a career in medicine. It’s a very satisfying profession.
