Back in 1966, the Lamborghini Miura was introduced, a car that would change automotive history forever and a name that made Lamborghini famous worldwide ... today the Miura is one of the most highly sought after models made in Sant'Agata with prices well into 7 figures ... celebrating her 50th anniversary in 2016 was reason enough for Automobili Lamborghini SpA to put together a few special events ... one of which being the Miura Tour held in June that saw no less than 20 different Miura taking a 500km trip through Italy, visiting some of the most amazing cities, from Bologna over Parma, Portovenere, Viareggio, Lucca and Florence.
As 2016 comes to an end the factory wanted to make sure the celebration concluded in style, taking the stunning, yellow Lamborghini Miura SV from the Museo Lamborghini on a trip to the famous bull breeding farm in Spain, where the Miura name came from.
175 years ago the Miura farm was founded in Lora de Rio, Andalusia, Spain ... when the late Ferruccio Lamborghini visited the farm owned by Don Eduardo Miura back in 1966 he decided to name his new mid-engine, game-changing supercar after those fighting bulls ... the Miura farm being one of the oldest and highly reputed 'ganaderías' in Spain.
Today this farm is still owned by the Miura family, Eduardo and Antonio are in fact sons of Don Eduardo, and what better way to celebrate the famous Lamborghini Miura than to take one of those amazing cars to the very place that inspired her name, accompanied by six models from the current lineup.
The bright yellow Miura SV was joined by a yellow Aventador, a silver Aventador Superveloce, a blue Aventador Superveloce Roadster, a green Huracan, a red Huracan and an orange Huracan Spyder ... on December 2 these seven Bulls drove 600km from Madrid to Lora del Rio to meet the Miura family on their farm.
