A Brief History of the Lamborghini Miura

Lamborghini’s three top engineers; Gian Paolo Dallara, Paolo Stanzini and Bob Wallace shared a vision of making a racing-inspired car for the road. However, fearing that Ferruccio would turn their design down, they worked on it as an after-hours project in the night. They put the Lamborghini V-12 from the 350 and 400GT cars, but fit the engine transversely behind the driver. When they finished the prototype design and presented it to Ferruccio, he green-lit the project thinking that the car would be an effective marketing tool, if nothing more. Lamborghini presented the rolling chassis at the 1965 Turin Auto Show, which impressed a lot of the visitors and Lamborghini commissioned design firm Bertone to design the car. They unveiled the prototype P400 Miura to the world in 1966 at the Geneva Auto Show.

At the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, the prototype Miura — named after Ferruccio’s dear friend Don Eduardo Miura — was an instant hit among visitors and the media alike, with high praises for Marcello Gandini’s seamless design. The original Miura P400 had the 3.9-liter naturally aspirated Lamborghini V-12 transversely mounted behind the driver to save space. The Miura could put out 350 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Lamborghini fit the five-speed transmission in the engine’s sump as a space-saving measure, with the engine and the transmission both sharing the same lubrication. The car made headlines for its high performance and stunning looks, making Lamborghini the envy of the world.
Marcello Gandini’s beautiful design of the Miura made the car a favorite among critics. When open, the car’s doors resembled the bulls of a horn from the front as an homage to Lamborghini’s emblem and Ferruccio Lamborghini’s liking of bulls. The car was a pioneer with its engine placement and sleek design. The car also featured grilles over the headlights, making it seem as if the car had eyelashes. The rear-engine placement in high-performance road cars was previously unheard of, but with the Miura, Lamborghini gave rise to a whole new category of cars; the supercar. Even now, most modern supercars follow some variation of the Miura’s rear-mid engine placement design.
Lamborghini unveiled the P400S Miura in 1968 at the Turin Motor Show. It featured minor improvements when compared to the original P400; serving as an iterative upgrade in the Miura lineup. It had power windows, an optional air conditioning unit, and added 20 more horsepower to the 3.9-liter V-12, bringing the total output to 370 horsepower and 286 pound-feet of torque. It was in production from 1969 to 1971 and Lamborghini sold 338 P400S models.
In 1971, Lamborghini unveiled the most improved version of the Miura, the Miura SV. It was also referred to as the P400SV. The engine was upgraded and now produced 385 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine now also had separate lubricating systems for both the engine and the transmission system. It also ditched the ‘eyelashes’ in favor of a more uniform and refined design. The Miura SV featured wider wheel arches and air conditioning as standard. Lamborghini also fit the car with wider Pirelli tires for better grip. Lamborghini claimed that the Miura SV had a top speed of around 170 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of 6.7 seconds, which made it the fastest car in the world at the time of its release.
During its production from 1966 to 1973, Lamborghini produced just 764 units of the Miura, making it one of the rarest Lamborghinis in the world. Besides the Jota and the SV/J, Lamborghini also produced a Miura Roadster, which was a one-off Miura for Bertone designs unveiled at the Brussels Auto Show in 1968
