Lamborghini Miura Concept
Lamborghini brings back a legendary name from the company’s past with the breathtaking “Lamborghini Miura Concept”. which its the first vehicle to be conjured from Walter de’ Silva, Head of Lamborghini Design.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, the Miura was originally designed by Marcello Gandini and was first publicly presented at the 1966 Geneva Show.
De’ Silva 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.
And so a true design icon is reborn. “Over the last two years,” explains Walter de’ Silva, “I have often dreamt 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 NAIAS SHOWin Detroit.
