Lamborghini Miura successor is being considered

In an interview involving Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali and Automotive News, the topic about the Urus was thoroughly discussed. This super SUV is scheduled to make its debut later this year. Domenicali also told them that the Urus should be in the hands of customers by mid-2018. With a starting price of less than €200,000 ($223,000), the company expects it to play a major role in terms of sales, expecting to sell over 7,000 units annually by 2019. There were exactly 3,457 supercars that left the Lamborghini factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese last year.

Besides the Urus, Domenicali revealed to Automotive News that the niche market is analysing the prospects of developing a four seater sports car, when asked about Lamborghini’s plans beyond the hot SUV - making the interview much more interesting. But don’t be too excited, as they company has planned for its release in the “2025 to 2030 horizon”, that is a long time from now.

Not so long ago, there were rumours that Lamborghini’s fourth model will take inspiration from the past. What they really meant was that the timeless Miura might get a modernized interpretation, according to Domencali. But like he said, though it receives a stamp of approval, the 21st century Miura will not be out in the next coming years.

‘Italian Job’ 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 up for sale

The 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 is one of the few cars that have quite an interesting history. In addition to having an amazing style, it is powered by a 4.0-liter V12 engine and with 350 hp, it made a sound so powerful it could be heard as far as a mile away. Film fans will likely remember seeing the Miura P400 in “The Italian Job” particularly in the opening scene with an orange version coasting through an alpine highway.

For the super fans and those who can afford it, the good news is that the same Miura P400 in the film is now being put on sale. The original Miura P400 had the 3568 chassis number with the Arancio Miura finish and interior in Pelle Bianco leather.

The Miura P400 is the second in a series that is characterized by a thicker chassis thus having less flexibility. It also has 11,806 miles on it. In 2011, not only was its engine block replaced but the paint job was renewed as well.

Lamborghini Miura P400 Spinto Veloce (SV)

If you consider yourself a true car aficionado, you may recognize the Miura from Lamborghini as the first supercar in the world. But have you heard about the Miura Spinto Veloce (SV)? It is relevant as it is regarded as the last and most advanced model from this supercar range.

It also boasted a sleek profile and exceptional specs that fit the image of this brand more than any of its other supercars. The Miura is even considered by many as the first-ever modern supercar – which came after the Mercedes 300 SL and Ferrari 275 GTB.

It was at the 1963 Turin Motor Show that the first Lamborghini prototype was first presented. During the F1 week at Monaco in 1966, a Miura number 1 was seen parked on the Place du Casino. If you’re wondering, the car’s name is taken from Seville’s fighting bulls.

Avid car collector finds rare 1969 Lamborghini Miura S in a barn

It takes a lot of luck and perseverance to find a car as legendary as the Lamborghini Miura S. In that case, lady luck must be smiling down on car collector John Temerian. Temerian, who sits as President of the company Lou La Vie, chanced upon a near-mint condition Lamborghini Miura S after he responded to an ad selling an old Lamborghini.

The exec has had a life-long affinity with the Miura S, with his family owning at least 10 units of the Lamborghini Miura SV. According to Temerian, he responded to the advertisement when he saw the serial number.

The ad showed the Lamborghini in a barn but did not mention a model name. However, Temerian claimed to have memorized the serial numbers for each and every Miura S that has been produced by Lamborghini way back in the 1970s.

The 40-year wait is finally over as the one-off Lamborghini Miura Spyder – known as the ‘Lamborghini Bertone Miura Roadster’ -- makes a grand comeback. We received this confirmation from Joe Sackey, Miura expert and author of "The Lamborghini Miura Bible," which was published by Veloce Publishing Ltd. in November 2008.

Let us talk about a not-so-well-known important piece of history. In 1967, Marcello Gandini started to build a Spyder version of the Miura. This was a request from no other than Nuccio Bertone.

The project was meant purely to showcase its design and to sustain the demand for Lamborghini’s Miura. The ‘Lamborghini Bertone Miura Roadster’ had a light metallic blue finish and had been fitted with leather interior in off-white with a red carpet.
