Lamborghini Miura Concept Debuts

The House of the Raging Bull has brought back a legendary historical name with the introduction of its Lamborghini Miura Concept car.

The Lamborghini Miura Concept will be the first Lamborghini vehicle to be conjured from the pen of Walter de? Silva, Head of Lamborghini Design. De Silva?s other responsibilities include serving as Head of Design of Audi Group. The talented designer?s idea for the new concept was simple: a retro-inspired look heralding back to one of the auto world?s most famous icons, the legendary Lamborghini Miura.

Automobili Lamborghini eagerly begins the New Year with the much anticipated unveiling of the Lamborghini Miura Concept, a modern interpretation of the Lamborghini Miura. Currently celebrating its fortieth anniversary, the Miura was originally designed by Marcello Gandini and first publicly presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show by Ferruccio Lamborghini and Nuccio Bertone.

To this day the Miura is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful cars ever created.

The new concept model which, as of now, is strictly a concept with no firm date set for its production launch, is the inspired creation of de? Silva, the world-famous Italian designer. He has redesigned every aspect of the car while remaining absolutely faithful to the original form.

The new car retains the extraordinary purity of line, characteristic of the original Miura: the designer?s intervention has been defined by refining the contours and eliminating any superfluous detail, in order to enhance the clean, simple lines and perfectly balanced proportions of the original that so impassioned enthusiasts.

The restyling of the lower part of the body takes the car?s structural strength and aerodynamic performance to new heights, without disturbing the delicate aesthetic equilibrium.

Even the touches of contemporary styling applied to the interior, the lights and the wheels have been carefully measured to achieve a homogenous design that is both timeless and immediately recognisable.

So a true design icon is born.

"Over the last two years," explains Walter de? Silva, "I have often dreamed of redesigning the Miura. Now, thanks to my new position at the head of Lamborghini design, and the enthusiastic support of the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, I have been able to turn that dream into a reality."

The Lamborghini Miura Concept will be on show at the Lamborghini stand at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The perfect contender for the Ford GT.

I like it, but it might be too retro.
At first, it may look too retro, but looking at it some more I've realized that it's just the exact same thing, but does away with some of the details on the original that I didn't really like, like the plastic slats on the hood, the black-painted headlight surroundings, and the full-length grille I didn't care much for about. I think it's gorgeous.

Shame about the color, though. And the silver rocker panels; can't they paint those the same as the body? Like they should have on the original! ;)
i agree that it looked kinda retro at first. but after looking at it a bit more i love it!!! i just
hope that they can keep the weight down
I love these retro styled cars that we are seeing more of. Remember that crazy Holden Effigy concept back in October?

Looks pretty cool...would be a competitor for the Ford GT maybe.
too retro and curvy for a lambo. i like their hard-edged, angular and lightly futuristic look
The Miura is one of my favorite cars of all time (if not THE favorite) so this killer looks with modern technology is just a dream made reality. I need to go to the lavatory again... :unsure:
looks cool, but i need to see those headlights changed. and i want this to be better than the murcielago, the top of the range lambo.
:yucky: :x
It's like they tried to recreate the car from a blurry picture and lost all the details. For crying out loud, Lambos are supposed to be cutting edge, shocking, and schoolboy's wallpaper, not tired "I've been in a coma for the past 40 years and picked up where I left off" photocopies of their heritage. I'd much rather see them do a new LM off-roader than this nap down memory lane.
why are they doing what chevy is doing? I mean am sure they're capable of doing a new design and a
kick ass one too, :thumbsdown: from me. besides its not flashy enough to be a lambo. it used to be flashy in its time.
I think you guys need some more pics...

And I love that design, not rims though. They should make it RWD.




OMG, i think i just had an accident :eek:

I AM IN LOVE :drool:
niiiiiiice :thumbsup:

but looks more like a lotus than a lambo imho :unsure:

Ahhh bone you hit the nail on the head. Something was bothering me about this car and thats it. Its not Lambo enough. I still like it though. It better have more than 550BHP though or else the GT owns it.

WCeend is a belgian (maybe dutch as well) product to clean your toilet. translated to english it would be "toilet duck"

it's the brand of the product, and it got it's name due to the twist in the bottle, so you can reach under the edge where the wather is comming from

funny to take that as a nick, could as well use "kip" :p
