Lamborghini miura p400
considered among the very first supercars, the 1st miura prototype was painted orange and personally driven by bertone to the 1966 geneva motor show. the miura became the highlight of the event and overshadowed the debuting ferrari 330gtc.
racing cars were beginning to dominate using the mid-engine format so it was inevitable that this layout would influence the production of sports cars.
lamborghini enlisted the experience of bertone and their aim was to build the world's finest gt cars of the era. bertone were the leading sculptor of automotive form and the miura pretty well set the whole motoring world on its ear.
