Lamborghini Miura Concept
We all love the Lamborghini cars even if it’s about the newest models available on the market or about the older ones which became legendary in their era and continue to work their magic nowadays, winning over our hearts. Sometimes, we forget about old times, but a reminder is always welcome. And when it’s about cars, sometimes the past offers us amazing and incredible memories. That’s the case of the new Lamborghini Miura concept car especially designed for the anniversary of the legendary Miura.
The Italian automaker brought back a legendary name from the past of the Lamborghini cars by introducing the “breathtaking” Lamborghini Miura Concept. This car is the first Lamborghini vehicle created by Walter de’Silva. The idea of the designer for this new Lamborghini Miura Concept is quite simple. He wanted to design a car inspired from the world’s most famous icon, the Miura. In fact, this car is a modern interpretation of the legendary Miura. The Lamborghini Miura concept was revealed in 2006 at the Detroit Auto Show as a wonderful gift for the 40th Anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura originally designed by Marcello Gandini and revealed to the public at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show.
The new Lamborghini Miura concept follows the lines of the original Miura, but in the same time refines the contours and removes any superfluous detail. In addition, the restyling of a lower body offers a higher structural strength and aerodynamic performance without affecting the delicate aesthetic equilibrium. The Lamborghini Miura concept boasts with its prominent horizontal intake and the chin spoiler below it. When you look at this car from a side you will observe the air intakes mounted near the rear edges of the doors. And what is there to say about the rectangular tail lamps placed in the rear fascia? They are incredible! The rear back really completes the overall look of this supercar.
The inside of this amazing new Lamborghini Miura concept car is also worth taking a look at. The modern touches applied to the interior, the wheels and the lights were perfectly matched to obtain a homogenous design which is timeless and easily recognizable once you enter the car. You can admire the nicely integrated instrument panel which is dominated by two gauges including the tachometer and the speedometer. Moreover, the center console includes six smaller gauges and a metal-bracketed transmission tunnel which houses a Lamborghini gated shifter.
Under the hood, the new Lamborghini Miura concept car is equipped with a V10 engine used for the Lamborghini Gallardo, but upgraded to develop over 600 horsepower and placed more conventionally in a longitudinal configuration. Because of this, the new Miura will be equipped with a seven-speed DSG sequential transmission courtesy of the incredible Bugatti Veyron. Another improvement of the new Miura is that the new body of the car was created to provide the necessary down force for a top speed which can reach more than 200 mph. In addition, when the rear spoiler rises from the bodywork, the car earns an additional down force at 75 mph.
The new Lamborghini Miura concept is an amazing and perfect way to celebrate the popularity and celebrity of the incredible 1966 Miura. If you are interested in purchasing one of these models you must know that this car is only a concept with no date set for its production launch. In addition, this car is expected to cost around $350,000 when it will finally be introduced in production. Therefore, you should be patient and work out a budget in order to fulfill your dream.
