Lamborghini, after all, is not in the car business. They are in the beautiful people business, and they happen to make cars, super cars, for super beautiful humans. And the one my dear model stood beside happened to be perhaps the most beautiful of all the Lamborghini creations on display: the reprised, revisited and regaled Miura Concept. Done to celebrate the original Miura’s 40th anniversary, the concept is only a design study, but will probably become real, judging from the enthusiastic reception it received, and because, well, beautiful people love beautiful things.
Lime cream masterpiece
If made into a production car, the Miura will likely ride on the chassis of the Audi R8. Concept specs call for an all-wheel-drive setup, a base price of around $800,000, and a powertrain driven by a 6.5-liter, 700-horsepower V12 engine with a sequential 7-speed automatic transmission. As such, the Miura will do battle with the likes of the Ferrari Enzo.
