Celebrating the forefather of all V12 Lamborghini supercars, 2016 marks the Miura’s 50th birthday. To commemorate the model’s half century, Lamborghini has already meticulously restored a green Miura SV that was displayed at the 1971 Geneva motor show, along with taking two examples from Lamborghini’s own museum on an ‘Italian Job’ road trip through the Swiss Alps with the Miura’s designer and the heads of its technical development.
Adding to the festivities, the Italian supercar maker has released a very limited version of its current flagship, the Aventador, and named it the Miura Homage special edition.
Two internal colour options are offered, in full Nero Ade or Terra Emilia leather with tone-on-tone stitching and carbon fibre package as standard. The Miura 50th logo is stitched into the upper part of the seats in gold or silver to reflect the car’s livery, and the “Lamborghini” lettering embroidered on the leather dashboard.
As for the interior, the Aventador Miura Homage is offered with the option of either a black or a dark brown leather upholstery, with tone-on-tone stitching, the carbon fibre package, and ‘Lamborghini’ lettering embroidered onto the leather dashboard.
Each individually-numbered car comes with Dione wheels in matte gold or silver, and a metallic Miura badge on the side. The custom leather interior features the Miura 50th anniversary logo stitched into the seats. “Lamborghini” is embroidered across the leather dashboard. There’s also a limited edition plate, but that’s where the changes end. The Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12 remains intact.
Only 50 units will be produced, most of which are already spoken for. For the rest of us, the Aventador Miura Homage is on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed until June 26.
