It was the first true super car. A transversely mid-mounted growling V12 enveloped by what many consider to be the most beautiful automotive bodies ever designed. The Lamborghini Miura, which debuted fifty years ago at 1966’s Geneva Motor Show, changed the automotive landscape forever. It helped introduce the concept of a true supercar, and its DNA has woven itself throughout the world’s most exclusive vehicles ever since – especially its direct descendants in the Countach, Diablo, Murcielago and of course, the Aventador.
To celebrate the Miura’s achievements half a century ago, earlier this year Lamborghini introduced a limited Miura Homage Edition Aventador, of which only fifty have been made and only one will be sold in Hong Kong. Lamborghini Hong Kong unveiled their prized example, with its iconic Miura-style two tone colour scheme and vintage leather interior, to the local motoring press earlier today at an event in Tsim Sha Tsui.
The aggressive Verde-Scandal-hued Aventador is not pre-sold, and is in fact waiting for whoever is willing to stump up the HK$8,000,000 needed to claim the rare 700hp V12 raging bull. It’s hard to stand out from the crowd when all your friends drive super cars; this might just be the way to do it.
