This limited Aventador gets styling touches that are inspired by the late 1960s.
Lamborghini will take advantage of the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s celebration of automotive performance by debuting the new Aventador Miura Homage there. The special model will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lambo’s V12 super car reaching the market. The company will build just 50 of these more stylish vehicles, and over half of them already have deposits, the automaker reports.
Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customization studio handles adding the Miura-inspired touches to the Aventador. Customers can pick from colors that would look perfect on the classic supercar, like Rosso Arancio Miura red, Verde Scandal green, and Blu Tahiti blue. Contrasting trim along the sides adds an extra visual flourish, and the wheels come in gold or silver. Metallic Miura badges near the rear wheels also tell crowds that these vehicles are something special. Inside, buyers pick from Nero Ade black or Terra Emilia brown leather, and carbon fiber trim is standard.
The Miura Homage’s vintage touches look fantastic on the Aventador’s modern lines, but these examples don’t get any extra performance in addition to the upgraded style. Power still comes from a 6.5-liter V12 with 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet. However, the original Miura could never reach this Lambo’s top speed of 217 miles per hour or its sprint to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds.

LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR MIURA HOMAGE SPECIAL EDITION A TRIBUTE TO THE ICONIC MIURA'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Sant’Agata Bolognese/Goodwood, 23 June 2016 – Automobili Lamborghini presents the Aventador Miura Homage, a special edition of the current Aventador coupe that pays tribute to the Miura, the forerunner of all V12 Lamborghini super sports cars in its 50th anniversary year. Just 50 units of the car will be produced, the majority of which have already been sold, available in selected markets worldwide.
Created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam studio, the Aventador Miura Homage reflects the colors and specifications of original Miura models. The upper body in one color is complemented by the lower body and sill in a contrasting tone. The original Miura was produced in a plethora of color and trims, often to the particular specification of a client, with six of the most iconic solid and metallic colorways selected for the Aventador Miura Homage including Rosso Arancio Miura (solid color); Verde Scandal (solid); and Blu Tahiti (metallic).
The Aventador exterior’s homage to the Miura continues with 20”/21” Dione rims in either matt silver or gold. A metallic Miura badge on the side and black Lamborghini logo on the rear, together with a limited edition plate positioned inside the car clearly denominates the Aventador Miura Homage.
Two internal color options are offered, in full Nero Ade or Terra Emilia leather with tone-on-tone stitching and carbon fiber package as standard. The Miura 50th logo is stitched into the upper part of the seats in gold or silver to reflect the car’s livery, and the ‘Lamborghini’ lettering embroidered on the leather dashboard.
The Aventador Miura Homage’s V12, 6.5 l engine produces 700 hp at 8,250 rpm and maximum torque of 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Accelerating from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds, the Aventador Miura Homage has a top speed of 350 Km/h (217 mph).
The Aventador Miura Homage will be shown as part of Automobili Lamborghini’s celebrations for the Miura’s 50th anniversary at events during 2016, and the first time at Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK from 23 to 26 June.
