Gold. Red. And sexy all over. Lamborghini is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Miura with a special edition Aventador that’s all of the above.
When it debuted in 1966, the Miura was the fastest production sports car in the world and the two-seater really redefined the concept of a sport car.
The Aventador Miura Homage does more than pay tribute to the past with 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers 700-horsepower and 690 pound-feet of torque. The middle mounted engine delivers power to all four wheels for a zero to 62 mph time of 2.9 seconds. Now we’d call that fast. It gets the Aventador standard top speed of 217 mph.
The specialization team over at Lamborghini, the Ad Personam division, designed the limited-edition model. The team resurrected the original colors on the first Miura. That means the top main body portion offers the six most iconic colors of the time including Rosso Arancio, Verde Scandal, and Blu Tahiti. The bottom sills and accents are in gold. If you like mixing your metals, the 20/21-inch Dione wheels come in either matt gold or silver.
Miura badging keeps you covered on the sides and back. Inside features custom leather upholstery with Miura honoring stitching. The two color designs of Nero Ade and Terra Emilia are offered with tone-on-tone stitching. The carbon fiber package comes standard.
There will only be 50 Aventador Miura Homage models to go around. Prices are still to come, but most of the 50 are already claimed. If you want to see one, grab a flight to England this weekend and head over to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. In the meantime, enjoy the stunning photos.
