Here’s What the New Lamborghini Miura Should Look Like
We work with an illustrator to dream up the next-gen Miura
Our European bureau chief, Georg Kacher, recently reported that Lamborghini is mulling another model that would slot between the Aventador and Huracan, and that said model might be an all-new Miura. Bringing one of our all-time favorite mid-engine supercars back to life—exciting, no? And it seems like the perfect time to do so, what with the Miura celebrating it 50th anniversary and all.
The automaker did just announce it will sell 50 examples of the Aventador Miura Homage edition, which features throwback paint schemes, color-coded wheels, and Miura badges embroidered on the seats, but we want the real thing. We want a new Miura, one with a hybridized V-10 engine mounted longways behind a spacious two-passenger cabin. Something we can "ooh and aah" over for the next half-century.
Since we're not sure when we'll get a new Miura or if we'll get one at all, we called up one of our favorite illustrators, Avarvarii, and had him start mocking up what the modern-day Miura might look like, and this is what he ended up with. Avarvarii used the 1971 Miura that Lamborghini's PoloStorico group restored for this past spring's Amelia Island concours, rendering the new car in the same Verde Metallizata paint. We love the look he came up with for the new Miura, which would have gorgeous geometric hood vents reminiscent of the original Miura.
What do you think? Shouldn't Lamborghini build our Miura?
