1966 Lamborghini Miura vs 2006 Da Silva’s Miura

July, 2010 § 5 Comments

The Lamborghini Miura is a legend of the italian sports car. It is named after the Spanish ranch Miura, whose bulls have a proverbial attack instinct.

Marcello Gandini from Bertone designed the body. It was a sensation in 1966, with its flamboyant bodywork and unusual engine and clam-shell opening hoods on both the front and rear of the car. There was a small trunk located in the very rear of the tail behind the engine.

You can compare 1966 Miura with the concept designed by Walter Da Silva (our loved Walter who has designed great cars for Alfa Romeo and now for Volkswagen Group -including Lamborghini and some nice concepts for Seat!-).

It’s not easy to choose a few pics from the classic Miura, it’s a really gorgeous cars. Very special.
