Back in 1966 the Lamborghini Miura was an automotive icon, unlike anything else on the open road, the Miura revolutionized the exotic car scene in the Sixties … years ahead of anything the competition was able to offer, the Miura made the Lamborghini name famous all over the world … keeping in mind Automobili Lamborghini SpA was only founded three years earlier it made the Miura even more impressive.
During 2016 the factory is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of this masterpiece, first with the Miura Tour, a 500km road trip in Italy arriving in Florence, and now with a very special, Ad Personam edition of the current V12 flagship … the Aventador Miura Homage special edition.
The Miura was the first V12 supercar in the history of Lamborghini, so the Aventador is a direct descendant of this classic from the Sixties, the Aventador Miura Homage is a special edition created by the Ad Personam department at Sant’Agata, only 50 units will be built to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Miura, and all will come with bespoke details not available on the regular production Aventador.
As a base the LP700-4 model is taken, but in case of the Miura Homage the entire upper body is finished in the same shade, this means the black fins on the vents in front of the windshield and on the large side intakes are now color coded to the rest of the body, while the lower part of the front bumper and the side sills are available in either gold or satin silver … as are the Dione wheels … just like on the Miura back in the Sixties.
On the side sill the special Miura 50th logo is mounted while the Lamborghini script at the rear is now black instead of chrome, also the section between the vents at the back is finished in black as are the fins on the engine cover … remember the louvers on the Miura, the Aventador Miura Homage mimics this look by not using glass fins on the engine cover.
Inside the Miura Homage you can get either Nero or Terra Emilia as the leather upholstery, both with tone-on-tone stitching. The amazing carbon fiber package is a standard fit on the Miura Homage edition while the seats show a ’50’ logo stitched in gold or silver, depending on the outside livery … the Lamborghini script on the dashboard is also stitched on in this case.
A special plaque stating ‘Miura 50 Serie Speciale 1 di 50’ is fitted on the side of the dashboard clearly stating the limited edition nature of this V12 … at the moment there is no official price released, but most likely there will be a premium over the regular Aventador LP700-4.
