After the launch of the 'Baby Lamborghini', the V10 powered Gallardo model, tuners around the world were thinking about creating some kind of aftermarket add-ons for this new Lamborghini.
But the first to offer a complete range of tuning parts for the Lamborghini Gallardo was Miura Corse, a trademark of the Dimex Group, based in Erbenheim, Germany.
The first thing that pulls your attention are the many parts finished in Carbon Fiber, the big front spoiler, the massive rear wing, the added air intake covers ... all are finished in high gloss, clear Carbon Fiber.
On a silver metallic car like the one shown here this really stands out, probably on a dark metallic or black car the overall impression would be a little less dramatic. Naturally the inside of the car also deserves some attention, so several parts in the interior are replaced with hand made, Carbon Fiber accents, also note the engine cover can be exchanged for a Carbon Fiber Unit.
After the initial presentation of this silver metallic car some additional accessories became available from Miura Corse, like a stainless steel exhaust system and multi piece alloy wheels, offered in either 19 inch or massive 20 inch.
At this time the engine is not yet modified, but the engineers are currently working on this, with a reprogrammed motronic system, special Carbon Fiber air box, cooled fuel system and a replacement for the standard catalysts ... probably increasing horsepower and torque to a level close to the majestic V12 powered Murciélago.
These parts are now available, so please feel free to check out these two contacts for the United States, Carrozzeria Design is an official dealer for the southern California region, while P-FACTOR Automotive is the North American exclusive distributor for Miura Corse.
For the United Kingdom market you can visit Dynamik Design for all your Miura Corse needs.
