Lamborghini celebrates the 50 years of its first supercar with the special edition Aventador Miura Homage

The Lamborghini Miura is an amazing supercar. And it completes 50 years in 2016. To celebrate the anniversary, Lamborghini has adopted the easiest path. Instead of putting the Miura Concept to production, they have created a special edition for the Aventador, called Aventador Miura Homage. The Miura Concept was deemed too nostalgic by Stefan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini at the time. But a special edition is ok, right, Winkelmann?

The Aventador Miura Homage will have predictably only 50 units. It makes references to Lambo’s first supercar by using a 2-tone body paint, red in the upper part and golden in the lower one. At least in the car pictured here. There will be 6 options, with Rosso Arancio Miura (red, solid color), Verde Scandal (green, solid) and Blu Tahiti (blue, metallic) among them.

Inside the Aventador Miura, two color options will be offered: Nero Ade (black) or Terra Emilia (brown) leather with tone-on-tone stitching and a carbon fiber package as standard. The seats also bring a Miura 50th logo stitched in golden in their upper parts, as well as “Lamborghini on the leather dashboard in the same pattern.

References to the Miura continue with the 20”/21” Dione rims in either matt silver or gold, as well as a metallic Miura badge on the side.

The car will be officially presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Its 6.5 V12 engine produces 515 kW at 8,250 rpm and 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 s and has a top speed of 350 km/h.
