Lamborghini commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Miura, the company’s first mid-engine creation that is said to have famously inspired the word ‘supercar’ with the limited edition Aventador Miura Homage.
Only 50 examples of the Aventador Miura Homage will be made for selected markets worldwide, though most are already spoken for.
Built by Lamborghini’s personalisation programme, Ad Personam, the Aventador Miura Homage sports the iconic dual-tone colour combination seen on the Miura, with an upper body colour that is complemented by a contrasting colour of either matte silver or gold for the lower sill.
If this more discrete blast from the past looks piques your interest, you might want to check with Lamborghini if there are any of the 50 units left.
Lamborghini will be offering the special edition Aventador with a range of six colours for the body, while each example will sport 20-inch and 21-inch Dione rims in either matt silver or gold to match the lower sill colour.
As for the interior, the Aventador Miura Homage is offered with the option of either a black or a dark brown leather upholstery, with tone-on-tone stitching, the carbon fibre package, and ‘Lamborghini’ lettering embroidered onto the leather dashboard.
A metallic Miura badge will adorn its side flanks with a black Lamborghini badge on its rear, while the Miura 50th logo will be stitched into the upper part of the seats in either silver or gold as it is with the exterior lower sill colour. Lastly, a limited edition plate will be fitted inside the car to authenticate its status as a commemorative model.
Aside from visual enhancements, the Aventador Miura Homage’s drivetrain is unchanged from the standard Aventador LP700-4. Its 515kW 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine is able to catapult the Aventador Miura Homage from 0 to 100km/h in a still astonishing 2.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of 350km/h.
A spruced-up Aventador might not sound like the most inspirational homage to the very car that put Lamborghini on the map, particularly given the brand went all out to design a modern interpretation for its 40th anniversary with the Gallardo-based 2006 Miura Concept.
But if this more discrete blast from the past looks piques your interest, you might want to check with Lamborghini if there are any of the 50 units left.
The Aventador Miura Homage will be part of Lamborghini’s celebrations for the Miura’s 50th anniversary this year, and will be making its public debut at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
