Post Lamborghini Miura Picture Thread



Lamborghini Miura Picture Thread

The Miura was produced by Lamborghini between 1966 and 1972. The car is widely considered to have begun the trend of high performance, two-seater, mid-engined sports cars. While the mid-engined layout had been used successfully in competition in cars such as the Ford GT40 and Ferrari 250 LM at Le Mans, the Miura was the first viable road car sporting the layout. At launch, it was the fastest production road car available.

The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini's engineering team, who designed the car in their spare time against the wishes of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who showed a preference towards producing powerful yet sedate grand touring cars, rather than the racecar-derived machines produced by local rival Ferrari. When its rolling chassis was presented at the 1965 Turin auto show, and the prototype P400 debuted at the 1966 Geneva show, the car received a stellar reception from showgoers and motoring press alike, who were impressed by Marcelo Gandini's sleek styling as well as the car's revolutionary design.

As Lamborghini's halo car, the Miura received periodic updates and remained in production until 1972, and was not replaced in the automaker's lineup until the Countach entered production in 1974, amidst tumultuous financial times for the company.

maybe the most beautiful car ever designed (the coupe though)... yet poor handling with too much front lift, and average mechanics, especially when compared to the F Daytona back then...

The problem was that it had the gas tank in the front. So when you were running low on fuel you suddenly had no grip on the front tires anymore
Still maybe the most beautiful car of all time imo.

Yes sir...and I quote...

"The name 'Miura' was made famous in 1947 by the world famous bullfighter Manolete. He turned his back on a black Miura bull named 'Jslero' and paid for it with his life. From that point on, the ferocious breed of Miura bulls were known not just to die-hard bullfighting fans, and the Miura name came to sybolize fear, strength and power.

Ferruccio Lamborghini visited the Seville ranch where the bulls were bred in 1962, and inspired by their majesty he took thier being as the symbol for his new car company.

When his young engineers came up with a sportscar design for the ages in 1965, there was no question in his mind what the car would be named: MIURA!"
