In one review, an elated writer concluded that “the Miura is what happens when you give a bunch of visionary designers and engineers the freedom to build something without restraint.” This is in reference to the permission granted to three young engineers by Ferruccio Lamborghini to do carry our some experimental tasks.
When they finally presented the Lamborghini Miura, it was hailed as a game-changer that significantly modified everything we know about street-legal sports cars today. When Lamborghini set to cook the Muiras between 1966 and 1973, they built about 800 of them.
In its heydays, it was the fastest production car under the sun. Close rivals that the Miura beat badly included the Ferrari 275 as well as the Jaguar E-Type.
Among its special qualities and groundbreaking approaches was the central V12 engine. Add this to the Bertone bodyshell that length a length of about 41 inches tall and there goes a car worth gaping at.
Classic cars such as the Miura tell of classic tales of days gone by. When you lay your hands on any of them, you have no doubt that you have one of the very best of vehicles done with passion and a focus on the future.
Quite a number of the Lamborghini Miura exist today. At its 50th Anniversary back in 2016, it was reported that about 400 of them could be accounted for.
