1968-1971 Lamborghini Miura P400S specifications Classic and Performance Car

Launched in 1968, the P400S recieved a number of improvements and upgrades over the original Miuras


If the 350/400GTs paved the way for Lamborghini to become a major player in the supercar scene, the trendsetting Miura left Ferrari floundering in its wake. At a time when mid-engined cars were very much for competition and niche cars, Lamborghini embraced the layout for its range-topping sports car. For many, the Miura was the first supercar. It wasn’t without faults – if you were tall, forget driving it, and if you wanted to go fast, you had to compensate for its flexing chassis and iffy aerodynamics. But despite that, it’s an all-time great, and one that remains undervalued.
