The Lamborghini Miura can be credited with creating the supercar as we know it today; a car that so radically changed car design in the late 60s, that its influence can still be seen in the design of some of the modern hypercars we see currently released.
The concept is believed to be the brainchild of seven young engineers at Sant'Agata, with the design credit going to Marcello Gandini at Bertone, who was just 27 at the time. The transversely-mounted mid-engine was something totally new at the time and this design genius can be seen in features such as the doors resembling bullhorns and those now iconic eye-lashes around the lights.
The 4-litre V12 engine was also a thing of beauty and capable of performance unprecedented at the time, with 350 bhp through a 6 Weber Carb set-up and a top speed north of 175 mph.
The example we have for sale was the 342nd car to leave the production line, making it an 'S' cariant from factory as only 275 standard cars were produced. This matching numbers Miura had the ultra-desirable air conditioning fitted from factory and was featured in the film 'Road Hard'. The car sits in a rich Arancio over Black and features Gold Wheels and side skirts.
Rarely does an example of this calibre come up for sale, not an opportunity to be missed!
