Wish Lamborghini would make a modern interpretation of the sexy Miura? Well, this might not be exactly what you were thinking but it’s a step in the right direction.
Lamborghini has come up with the Miura Homage special edition based on the current V12 Aventador (review here). It was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the gorgeous Miura, which was Lamborghini’s first V12 supercar and arguably the first ever supercar in the traditional meaning (mid-engined super sports car).
No changes are made in the engine compartment. So, behind the driver is a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 producing 515kW and 690Nm. It’s matched to a seven-speed automated-clutch automatic with all-wheel drive. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 2.9 seconds.
What the special model does feature though is an exclusive colour scheme which pays tribute to the Miura. The original Miura was famous for, among other things, being available with a variety of bright colour combinations. This Aventador is coated in Rosso Arancio, Verde Scandal, and Blue Tahiti.
To match the Miura theme, Lamborghini has fit up some bespoke 20-inch front and 21-inch ‘Dione’ alloy wheels. There’s also a metallic badge on the side and a black Lambo logo at the back.
Inside, there’s two colour options; Nero Ade or Terra Milia leather with two-tone stitching. Some carbon fibre trimmings spruce up the already-stunning cabin, with the upper section of the seats featuring gold or silver logos to match the exterior.
The Miura Homage has been put together by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam studio, responsible for all of its customisation options. Just 50 examples of the Miura Homage will go into production.
