The House of the Raging Bull brings back a legendary name from the company’s past with the breathtaking “Lamborghini Miura Concept”.

 

The “Lamborghini Miura Concept” will be the first Lamborghini vehicle to be conjured from the talented pen of Walter de’ Silva, Head of Lamborghini Design. de’ Silva’s other design responsibilities include serving as Head of Design of Audi Group. The talented designer’s idea for the new concept was simple: a retro-inspired look heralding back to one of the auto world’s most famous icons, the legendary Miura.

 

Automobili Lamborghini anxiously begins the New Year with the highly anticipated unveiling of the “Lamborghini Miura Concept,” a modern interpretation of the Lamborghini Miura. Currently celebrating its 40th Anniversary, the Miura was originally designed by Marcello Gandini and was first publicly presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show by Ferruccio Lamborghini and Nuccio Bertone.

 

To this day, the Miura remains one of the most beautiful cars ever created.

 

The new concept model, which as of now, is strictly a concept with no firm date set for its production launch, is the inspired creation of de’ Silva, the world-famous Italian designer. He has redesigned every aspect of the car while remaining absolutely faithful to the original form.

 

The new car retains the extraordinary purity of line characteristic of the original Miura: the designer’s intervention has been defined by refining the contours and eliminating any superfluous detail in order to enhance the clean, simple lines and perfectly-balanced proportions of the original that so impassioned enthusiasts.

 

The restyling of the lower part of the body takes the car’s structural strength and aerodynamic performance to new heights, without disturbing the delicate aesthetic equilibrium.

 

Even the touches of contemporary styling applied to the interior, the lights, and the wheels have been carefully measured to achieve a homogenous design that is both timeless and immediately recognisable.

And so a true design icon is reborn.

 

“Over the last two years,” explains Walter de’ Silva, “I have often dreamt of redesigning the Miura. Now, thanks to my new position at the head of Lamborghini design and the enthusiastic support of the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, I have been able to turn that dream into a reality.”
