The saga of Lamborghini, a tale of ambition and automotive brilliance, started with Ferruccio Lamborghini. This visionary Italian entrepreneur, driven by a passion for cars, established Automobili Lamborghini in 1963. His goal was not just to enter the elite sports car arena but to revolutionize it, pledging to create vehicles that were as aesthetically mesmerizing as they were powerful and luxurious.
This promise was spectacularly realized with the debut of the Lamborghini Miura in 1966. Heralded as the inaugural supercar, thanks to its innovative mid-engine design, the Miura was a trailblazer in aesthetics and performance. As a symbol of its pioneering status, it was priced at a premium. In 1966, the Miura’s price tag was around $20,000, translating to approximately $180,390 in 2022. This placed it in a different league compared to its contemporaries, like the Ferrari 275 GTB, Aston Martin DB6, and Jaguar E-Type Series 1, which were the other notable GT models of that era.
