Warning: You May Fall In Love With This Modern-Day Lamborghini Miura

The Lamborghini Miura is rightfully regarded as one of the most beautiful cars ever designed and this rendering from Ruperto Design shows it could look just as good if it were reimagined for today.

The most identifiable aspect of the original Miura is its glorious low-slung profile and elongated hood. In updating the car for the 21st century, Ruperto Design maintained the overall shape of the original and then set about transforming the details.

At the front, you will notice a much sharper nose and bumper more reflective of Lamborghini’s current style than the curved shape of the original. In addition, the out-dated circular headlights have been replaced with thin LED units that, nevertheless, retain the ‘eyelashes’ which helped make the Miura so iconic.

Another nice change are the wing mirrors. Not all Miuras left the factory with mirrors but some that did featured small chrome mirrors mounted at the top of the front wheel arches. This rendering used this same location but has cameras instead of traditional mirrors to feed live images into screens in the cabin.

Continuing the stunning looks are aggressive side skirts with air intakes and a wrap-around windshield with narrow, and blacked-out, A-pillars, while there are also vents directly behind the side windows just like the original. It all looks rather superb.

Would Lamborghini ever launch a homage to the Miura? We would absolutely love to see it happen, and it’d sure sell like hot cakes, but that’s up to the powers-that-be at Sant’ Agata (or is it Wolfsburg?) to decide.

    I usually don’t enjoy renders but this took my breath. WOW

    It personally feels like a very 1980s’ futuristic version of the original. Currently there is a ‘big-thing’ for 80s’ everything essentially from design to television etc “A Resurgence of the ‘retro-futuristic 1980s’, Whilst it is quite popular, it is not particular to everyones tastes (although I do not believe there is anything wrong with it, at least when it comes to automotive design, it may not be my particular cup of tea, but to each their own.)… Anything can be great if done with heart, soul, and purpose.

    Therefore, With that said, I personally prefer the design of the Early to Mid-2000s’ “The Post Y2K Era” & “The 1920s’-1960s’ Retro Futuristic Renaissance” (Both of which lasted about from 2001-2004/2005 and 2006-2012, in my own personal opinion). A Time when design was a bit more quirky, bubbly, and odd; but in a lovable way; similar to the design of the 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept Shown Below.

    Very Simple, Not too over-styled (not to say that the design rendering here is), & Quite happy/joyful design for what it is. I personally prefer this to the current rendering shown here today.

    But to complement the render of today, I think that while some areas may be a bit here and there, and while it may not be to everyones tastes; like the current 1980s’ resurgence of the now late 2010s’… there may be a lot to like, and maybe even a lot to love, here.

      The front is a bit bland/generic (could be almost any brand).

      The above rendering would look better if it lost the crease down the middle (already has 2 creases down the hood, no need for a 3rd).

  • ONE OF THE FEW RENDERS SHOWN HERE THAT I LIKE.
    IT’S QUITE BEAUTIFUL. IT’S A SHAME THERE AREN’T MORE ANGLES.

    The side of the car looks like a Huracan’s, almost so Lamborghini could make a limited production Miura based of the Huracan. The 50th anniversary of the Miura was 3 years ago so Lamborghini missed out on something big, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a 55th anniversary limited production car. I’d love to see Lamborghini do something like this.

    This is extremely well done; the proportions, the update is just enough to combine the traditional styling cues with the modern Lanbo look, and the details are well thought-out. Even the color plays back to one of the original Muira tones.

    Lamborghini could do well to consider hiring this young man.

    Oh too late, I’m already in love with it.

  • William rowe

    all their cars look the same to me but if this was real it would stand out for me anyhow, the person who made this render is talented

    Just missing one thing: the headlights.

  • exeptor

    If you ask me call this De Tomaso Pantera and build it.
