May of 1963, Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. That’s where one of the most iconic supercar manufacturers was born. Lamborghini (along with Ferrari) is the most recognizable names in high-performance exotics. Since ’63 they have not only been making amazing cars, but the best looking cars. Many have deemed Lamborghini the ultimate bedroom wall company; meaning nothing else would look better on the wall of a young boys/man’s bedroom. While this may seem childish, it’s without a doubt a massive compliment. All their cars look good, but the Miura is regarded by many as one of the best looking cars ever made.
Just As It Rolled Off The Assembly Line…
Many people like to modify classic cars, to make them a mashup of modern tech and old style. However, some cars are best left alone. I can’t think of a car that represents that more than the Lamborghini Miura. They had already made a name of themselves, and people liked the cars, but the Miura is what launched the company to the top. Like nearly all Lamborghini’s, it’s rear-wheel drive, and mid-engine (with a transversely mounted V12). The mid/ rear-engine layout makes the car’s proportions so pleasing to look at. With a low, long, sweeping roofline it fits the classic Lambo wedge shape so many of their cars follow.
While many of their supercars have been very angular and aggressive in design, the late 60’s style helped shape this car in another way. It’s long and smooth, with curves in all the right places. This example is finished in a deep red called ‘Rosso Miura Acrilico’ which is complimented perfectly by the black vents/accents and golden bronze wheels. This car, in particular, is in perfect showroom condition. It is all original and looks as if it just rolled out of the factory a minute ago.
Let’s be real, 99.9% can’t afford a classic Italian supercar in this condition. However, if any of us could, we wouldn’t be able to resist this 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400. It is probably the coolest and most well-kept example of an old school exotic you’ll ever see. Learn More
