Back in 2006 Automobili Lamborghini SpA surprized us all with a modern look of a truly classic car they made in the Sixties, a model that created the foundation of all those exotic supercars we see from Sant'Agata today ... the legendary Miura.
Probably one of the most sensuous automotive designs ever, the Lamborghini Miura was built in the Sixties, this original, low slung, mid-engine V12 beauty demand a serious investment if you would like to park one in your garage, but in 2006 Lamborghini unveiled their Miura Concept, a modern look at the car that made the Raging Bull marque famous.
Unveiled at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the design for the Miura Concept was created by Walter de Silva, and while he did create a new concept, he remained true to the classic design that was 40 years old at that time ... sadly the Miura Concept was never put into production, despite many prospective owners wanted to put down a deposit on-sight ... today this one of a kind beauty has a place in the official factory museum in Sant'Agata.
Fast forward to 2018 ... freelance designer Kasim Tlibekov from Russia creates the Miura FR, his vision on how a stunningly beautiful car from the Sixties would look 50 years later ... and I have to admit ... he designed something really impressive.
Just look at those wide fenders up front and at the rear, together with a newly designed front bumper and a totally different rear fascia, now with stylish LED taillights ... we can all clearly recognize the legendary Lamborghini Miura in this concept, but still, it has become very modern.
I sure wouldn't mind seeing this Miura FR as a limited production special from Lamborghini, something like the Sesto Elemento for instance ... put a V12 behind the seats (Kasim went for a V8 up front ... I wouldn't do that to be honest) and add a few electric motors ... and we get a Miura TPI1050 for instance ... Trasversale Posteriore Ibrido with a total of 1,050 hp ... that would work for me.
But this is just a virtual, 3D render at the moment ... but it never hurts to dream ... right?
