Lamboâs Limited Edition Miura Homage
June 29, 2016
One of the cars that automotive designers everywhere give a hat tip to is the Lamborghini Miura. So to give it some special recognition, the people from SantâAgata Bolognese have created the Aventador Miura Homage, which comes out of Lamboâs Ad Personam studio.
There will be just 50 copies of the car that was the forerunner, 50 years ago, of all V12 Lamborghinis.
The original car was available with a wide color pallet. The homage is being painted with just a handful, including Rosso Arancio Miura (solid color); Verde Scandal (solid); and Blu Tahiti (metallic).
The car has the color scheme of the original in that the upper is one color and the lower body and sill in a contrasting tone.
Inside, there are two leather colors, Nero Ade and terra Emilia, which with tone-on-tone stitching. While that may be somewhat subtle, there is a 50th anniversary logo stitched in gold or silver on the upper portion of the seats in either gold or silver, as well as âLamborghiniâ lettering embroidered on the leather dashboard. And in keeping with the âhey-look-at-meâ garnishes, the Dione rims are either matt silver or gold, and there are a metallic Miura badge on the side of the car and a highly visibleâinside and out–limited edition plate on the inside of the car.
However, for a decent amount of time that bling will be a blur inasmuch as the 6.5-liter, 700-hp V12 rockets the car from 0 to 62 in 2.9 seconds and the Aventador Miura Homage has a top speed of 217 mph.
Bellissimo.Â Except for the somewhat garish self-references, that is.
