Lamborghini has unveiled a special edition of the current Aventador coupe to pay tribute to the Miura, which is the forerunner of all V12 Lamborghini super sports cars in its 50th anniversary year. Being dubbed as Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage, it would be limited to just 50 units. The majority of the special edition coupes have been already sold, while available in selected markets worldwide. It would make its first public appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK from 23 to 26 June.
Created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam studio, the Aventador Miura Homage reflects the colors and specifications of original Miura models. The upper body in one color is complemented by the lower body and sill in a contrasting tone. The original Miura was produced in a plethora of color and trims, often to the particular specification of a client, with six of the most iconic solid and metallic colorways selected for the Aventador Miura Homage including Rosso Arancio Miura (solid color); Verde Scandal (solid); and Blu Tahiti (metallic). The Aventador exterior’s homage to the Miura continues with 20-inch/21-inch Dione rims in either matt silver or gold. A metallic Miura badge on the side, black Lamborghini logo on the rear, and a limited edition plate is positioned inside the car.
Two internal color options are offered, in full Nero Ade or Terra Emilia leather with tone-on-tone stitching and carbon fiber package as standard. The Miura 50th logo is stitched into the upper part of the seats in gold or silver to reflect the car’s livery, and the ‘Lamborghini’ lettering embroidered on the leather dashboard. Under the bonnet, there is a 6.5L V12 engine which generates 700bhp of top power at 8250rpm and 690Nm of peak torque at 5500rpm. The Aventador Miura Homage sprints from 0-100kmph in just 2.9 seconds while clocking a top speed of 350kmph. The Aventador Miura Homage will be shown as part of Automobili Lamborghini’s celebrations for the Miura’s 50th anniversary at events during 2016.
