Lamborghini Miura 50th Anniversary
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura, and really, 50 years of the most insane, loud, and rock and roll cars known to man. The Miura is the genesis. Where it all started. This story was actually born out of a conflict between Ferruccio Lamborghini and Enzo Ferrari. Ferruccio dared to criticize a Ferrari and Enzo insulted him in return by calling a man who only knew about tractors and nothing about cars.
Lamborghini entered the scene is 1963 with the 350GT which captivated the world. Then in 1966 they turned it upside down. The Lamborghini Miura debuted and was the first production vehicle with a rear mounted engine and a V-12 at that. The Miura became the first true super car and invented the genre. 50 years have passed and Lamborghini has grown to be one of the leaders in the super car market by continuing with the same core principles that the Miura held. The Lamborghini is the flashy, loud raging bull and it all started with the 1966 Miura. Cheers to another 50 years!
