The Lamborghini Miura is a sports car that was
produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1966 and 1973. The car is
widely considered to have instigated the trend of high performance,
two-seater, mid-engined sports cars. At launch, it was the fastest
production road car available.
The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini's engineering team, who
designed the car in their spare time against the wishes of company founder
Ferruccio Lamborghini, who showed a preference towards producing powerful
yet sedate grand touring cars, rather than the racecar-derived machines
produced by local rival Ferrari. When its rolling chassis was presented at
the 1965 Turin auto show, and the prototype P400 debuted at the 1966 Geneva
show, the car received a stellar reception from showgoers and motoring press
alike, who were impressed by Marcello Gandini's sleek styling as well as the
car's revolutionary design.
As Lamborghini's flagship car, the Miura received periodic updates and
remained in production until 1973, and was not replaced in the automaker's
lineup until the Countach entered production in 1974, amid tumultuous
financial times for the company.
