Overview

Description

The Lamborghini Miura is a sports car that was produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1966 and 1973. The car is widely considered to have instigated the trend of high performance, two-seater, mid-engined sports cars.When released, it was the fastest production road car available.
The Miura’s rolling chassis was presented at the 1965 Turin auto show, and the prototype P400 debuted at the 1966 Geneva show, to stellar receptions from showgoers and motoring press alike. Both were impressed by Marcello Gandini’s sleek styling and the car’s revolutionary mid-engine design.
As Lamborghini’s flagship car, the Miura received periodic updates and remained in production until 1973, and was not replaced in the automaker’s lineup until the Countach entered production in 1974, amid tumultuous financial times for the company.

The Lamborghini Miura’s history is coated in nothing but success. The car successfully catapulted Lamborghini to be on equal footing with Ferrari, the top super car maker at that time. In fact, the Miura S was revolutionary in its own way, as Lamborghini’s rivals had to scramble to come up with their own innovations to match the company’s breakthrough with the mid-engined coupe.

Lamborghini, then an upstart in the super car industry, debuted what would become a legend in the super automobile circles in 1965, at the Turin car show. At that time, only a rolling chassis was revealed to the public. It would not be until 1966 that the full model would be unveiled in Geneva. The coachwork for the production model Miura S continues to be regarded as stylist Bertone’s best work.
