Fifty years ago, Ferruccio Lamborghini and his team unveiled the Miura. Unlike anything else before or since, the mid-mounted V12 was mounted east-west behind the cockpit for optimal weight distribution. It had more style than any other car, the headlights have eyelashes! She was the enticing Italian at the end of the bar. You know its a bad idea but you only live once. It caught the attention of celebrities like Frank Sinatra. He said you buy a Ferrari if you want to be someone, and you buy a Lamborghini when you are someone. It also mesmerized the eye of a young mechanic named Valentino Balboni. He joined Lamborghini in 1968 as an apprentice and is still on staff for marketing and promotions.
The car that invented the supercar industry was produced by hand until 1973, but only 764 Miuras were built. That’s why Lamborghini chose to build 50 Aventadors as tributes to the iconic car. It’s our job to offer the most exclusive cars in the world, so here are the details of the Aventador Miura Homage. Each car was ordered and built by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department due to the extensive changes from the production cars. The most striking feature is the two-tone exterior. Cars wearing two shades are rare these days, which makes no sense to us. The Miura Homage was only offered with gold or silver accents, which included the wheels, spoilers, and rocker panels. It helps to tame the aggressive looks, making it more inviting. Mr. Lamborghini would probably laugh at the notion of microfiber, so the interior is all leather. Premium Italian hides cover every inch of carbon fiber, and it’s a nice departure from the “regular” Aventador. Seats are embroidered with the Miura logo, and a numbered plaque on the A-pillar displays the build number. Only 12 were built for the US, and not just any dealer could order them. These cars were reserved for Lamborghini’s elite, which is why you deserve one. Check out these listings and tell us which one is your favorite.
