This year, the famous Lamborghini Miura, the world’s first mid-engine supercar, celebrates its 50th birthday. To do so, Lamborghini celebrated in the only way it knows how to — Italian style.
To celebrate one of the most iconic cars of all time, twenty classic Lamborghini Miuras came to Italy from all over the world to drive through many of the country’s gorgeous cities. On a route of 500 km, through Bologna, Parma, Portovenere, Viareggio, Lucca and Florence, passersby could hear the roar of twenty carbureted V12s.
But that isn’t all that the Sant’Agata brand has done. To honor the Miura, the brand’s first mid-engine car, Lamborghini created a special edition Aventador, called the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage.
Admittedly, this Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage is more of an aesthetic thing, as it’s colored to match a color scheme from the original car. The main color of this Miura Homage is the very same red you could get on the classic back in the ’60s. It also wears gold paint adorning the bottom of the car, as well as gold wheels, to match the famous two-tone color scheme of the Miura. It also wears “Miura 50” badges throughout the car, including on the lower side skirts and embroidered into the head rests.
The Lamborghini Aventador was always an exciting looking car. Maybe not the prettiest of cars, but certainly exciting, dynamic and eye-catching, exactly what a Lamborghini is supposed to be. This new Aventador Miura Homage’s color scheme, however, gives the Aventador a bit of that prettiness it lacked and has made it a genuinely good looking car. We love the red and gold two-tone color scheme and the gold wheels. Simply gorgeous.
We also love that Lamborghini is honoring the Miura, one of the best cars in its storied history. The Lamborghini Miura invented the mid-engine supercar back in the ’60s and largely considered to be one of the best looking cars of all time. So it’s fitting that Lamborghini honored it with the best looking variation of its best looking car.
