Lamborghini’s first Miura SV, the Spinto Veloce prototype built for the Geneva Motor Show, is a gorgeous one-off. And now you can finally see just like the audience did back in 1971.
This is the Lamborghini story like you’ve never heard it before: from the son of Ferruccio, Tonino Lamborghini, the kid sitting at the dinner table.
Bad news: We got lost looking for the new Giulia reveal so we had to sit in the nosebleed section.
The Lamborghini Miura is one of the most valuable, iconic, and well-preserved cars in history. They are owned by rock stars. They are not forgotten. Except for one, hiding in a barn in New Jersey.
Monterey Car Week is here, but this red Lamborghini Miura S is not the one RM Auctions will sell at Pebble. As the latest stunning Petrolucious tale reveals, this baby isn’t for sale just yet.
That's a ridiculous amount of money, not a ridiculous amount of drool. Though the latter would totally be forgiven, as this is an incredibly rare Lamborghini Miura SV Jota. How rare? Well the total number of Lamborghini Miuras comes out to somewhere around 740. And only somewhere around five bore the name Miura SV…
There are Lamborghinis, and then there are these Lamborghinis: the Miura and the Countach. The first was a beautiful work of art, the world's first modern supercar; the second was a brutal, violent machine, and the ultimate "poster car" for an entire generation of enthusiasts.
[This is the cover image for the original Lamborghini Miura brochure. It is, uh, rather bullish.]
The Lamborghini Miura is an icon, and not just because it's pretty. It's an icon because of the revolution that is ignited. It can be argued that the Miura is the first showroom-ready supercar, with its engine in the middle. And it looks fantastic in blue.
The Reunion is a wonderful short movie about Gianfranco Innocenti (yes, that Innocenti!) getting reunited with his long gone black Lamborghini Miura SV which used to accommodate him, his friend, and two ladies forty years ago. Yes, it must have been tight.
The Lamborghini Miura is one of the greatest cars of all time. Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld are some of the funniest people of all time. Put them together and you have the formula for the best episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee yet.
I don't know why I like this picture of Ferruccio Lamborghini staring at a Miura in 1966 so much. But I really do like it. (H/T!)
This is a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV with a built-in fire extinguisher under the lucky passenger's legs, as it should be with every Italian supercar. But not all SVs have the last line of defense.
As Lamborghini celebrates 50 years of motoring insanity this week, now seems like an appropriate time to look back on what may have been their most important car. It's the Lamborghini that redefined what an automobile could do and created the modern supercar archetype as we know it.
Remember when Raphael got to hang out with the Lamborghini Miura, one of the most beautiful cars ever made? You're about to see one go up on smoke. Before you watch this, you may want to send the children, the elderly and other sensitive people into another room. This bound to upset them.
This is a 1969 Lamborghini Miura S, often named the most beautiful car ever made. I spent two hours with it, before it went (of course) to Jerry Seinfeld.
You probably know Aristotle Onassis for marrying your favorite presidential widow, Jacqueline. As a guy who had more money than his native country has today, he also financed the construction of the Olympic Tower on 5th Avenue, while enjoying the best music Greece could offer in the seventies. In fact, he was so…
