In Lamborghini, it is all about moving forward; which is why certain cars like the new Centenario might be a bit too ahead of its time for some to digest its extreme looks. But if being retro is your taste, do not worry as Lamborghini still keeps in touch with their cars from the yesteryears like the gorgeous Miura.
And to celebrate the 50th birthday of the first production sports car with a mid-engine layout, Lamborghini had unveiled a green Miura which had gone through a detailed restoration process, revisiting its former glory when it first rolled off the production lines.
This Miura SV is set to capture the attention of the visitors at this week’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance taking place in Florida. This particular was actually on display at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show on the Bertone stand. However, the Lamborghini stand back then was more focused on the then-new Countach debut.
The restoration process was done by Polo Storico which is Lamborghini’s classic car department. Taking about one year to complete, the automaker said that they closely referred to period photo and documentation to restore or replace every component. Thanks to the brilliant job of them restoring the Miura, we can now see how the Verde Metallizata over tan leather looks like when it was new back in 1971.
