An impressive selection of 23 Lamborghini Miuras gathered to celebrate the iconic model’s 50th anniversary.
A cavalcade of 23 bright and beautiful Lamborghini Miuras gathered to mark the 50th anniversary of iconic model, during a Spanish rally organised by Kidston SA. To mark the occasion, the cars returned to their spiritual home – the Miura Ranch.
Ferruccio Lamborghini named his mid-engined supercar after a fierce breed of bull, reared since the 19th century by the Miura family on this ranch, located in Andalucia, southern Spain. Ferruccio visited the ranch many decades ago, meeting the then head of the Miura family, Don Eduardo.
The 23 cars that participated in the event included a stunning, one-of-four 1972 P400 SVJ built for exotic Haitian hotelier Alberto Silvero of Port au Prince, a 1970 P400 S first sold to Edmondo Lamborghini, brother of Ferruccio, and the oldest and youngest Miuras in existence.
Simon Kidston commented: ‘Nobody will deny that this event has been an opportunity for some very lucky Miura owners to enjoy their cars to the full on some great roads, but we also wanted to capture the moment in evocative images; ones that provide a fitting new chapter in the car’s history.’
Simon Kidston is well known for his love of the Miura, and is currently working with his team to produce a definitive book on the model – to be released in early 2017. This will work in conjunction with the online resource for the car, www.miuraregister.com
