Lamborghini is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Miura, arguably the world's first supercar, with a very limited run of special edition Aventadors.
The Aventador Miura Homage, a special edition of the current Aventador coupe that pays tribute to the Miura, the forerunner of all V12 Lamborghini super sports cars in its 50th anniversary year. Only 50 cars will be produced, with the majority of which being already sold, with the remainder only available in selected markets worldwide.
Created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam studio, the Aventador Miura Homage reflects the colors and specifications of original Miura models. The upper body in one color is complemented by the lower body and sill in a contrasting tone. The original Miura was produced in a plethora of color and trims, often to the particular specification of a client, with six of the most iconic solid and metallic colorways selected for the Aventador Miura Homage including Rosso Arancio Miura (solid color); Verde Scandal (solid); and Blu Tahiti (metallic).
The Aventador exterior’s homage to the Miura continues with 20” and 21” Dione rims in either matt silver or gold. A metallic Miura badge on the side and black Lamborghini logo on the rear, together with a limited edition plate positioned inside the car clearly denominates the Aventador Miura Homage.
Two internal color options are offered, in full Nero Ade or Terra Emilia leather with tone-on-tone stitching and carbon fiber package as standard.
Inside, 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.
The Aventador Miura Homage’s V12, 6.5 l engine produces 522kW at 8,250 rpm and maximum torque of 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Accelerating from 0-100 km/h takes just 2.9 seconds, with the top speed of the Aventador Miura Homage being a not too shabby 350 Km/h, a Speed the Miura could only dream of.
The Aventador Miura Homage will be shown as part of Automobili Lamborghini’s celebrations for the Miura’s 50th anniversary at events during 2016, and was shown for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the past weekend.
