Lamborghini celebrates Miura with Aventador Homage

Lamborghini has revealed an Aventador Miura Homage, a special edition that pays tribute to the iconic Miura.

The forerunner of all V12 Lamborghini super sports cars, the Miura celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And as such, the Italian company will only be producing 50 units of the special edition Miura Homage, the majority of which have already been sold.

Created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam studio, the Aventador Miura Homage reflects the colours and specifications of original Miura models. The upper body in one colour is complemented by the lower body and sill in a contrasting tone. The original Miura was produced in a plethora of colours and trims, often to the particular specification of a client. Lamborghini says six of the most iconic 'solid and metallic colourways' have been selected for the special edition model - including Rosso Arancio Miura (solid colour); Verde Scandal (solid); and Blu Tahiti (metallic).

The Aventador exterior’s homage to the Miura continues with 20”/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 denominates the Aventador Miura Homage.

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.

The special edition’s V12, 6.5-litre engine produces 700 hp at 8,250 rpm and maximum torque of 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm, accelerating from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds on to a top speed of 217 mph.

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 the first time at Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK from 23 to 26 June.
