1966-1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Lamborghini Miura is one of the most beautiful cars ever built, and the original P400 is also the best value


The Lamborghini Miura made its first appearance in chassis form at the 1965 Turin show, attracting much interest with orders and deposits coming in before the body itself was even designed. Its box steel chassis full of holes for lightness housed an engine and transmission placed transversely just ahead of the rear wheels. The V12 engine sat on top of the gearbox with the two sharing the same oil. Nothing like it had been seen before and it captured the imaginations of many. Every coachbuilder in Italy clamored for the opportunity to clothe the spectacular chassis. Bertone was chosen.
