 provided that
The founder of the range Lamborghini Ferruccio Lamborghini. After a few years I had the chance to work (Lamborghini tractor company was founded in 1949, was later extended to cover the activities in the manufacturing of air conditioning and other appliances), and there is the opportunity to own the best cars available and discover their weaknesses, Ferruccio decided to try to build a better car. The first step was to implement this commitment in society "automobile Ferruccio Lamborghini SAS" foundation in 1964. In the same year, it was purchased 91,000 square meters of a piece of land, where they were constructing an automobile factory (15,000 square meters). It should be noted that any construction/installation and configuration of the plant has been fully funded by Ferruccio pocket. ~ It has been invested 510 million pounds (~ $ 1.32 million) in total.

The birth of Miura

Develop a prototype, named P400 started at the initiative of talented engineers in the Lamborghini company in 1965. Initially, it was thought the Lamborghini that this car would be too expensive and the company will not be an able incarnation. However, with the assumption that the P400 will be a good marketing strategy, if not more, Lamborghini blessed the birth of this form.

And presented a prototype of the Miura publicly for the first time in Turin Motor 1965. presented as a chassis without a name. The car was driven through the middle of the rage these days (intends to use the racing car mid-engine only), so that even without the "dress", Miura indeed observed during the show.

After accelerating in Turin for the Lamborghini development of automotive design company Bertone design was hired to make the appearance of the Miura and finalized within a few months.

For the first time Lamborghini P400 at Geneva Motor Show 1966. Because of the unique design, and it was the Lamborghini P400 undoubtedly Geneva show of decorating the 36 cars, and phrases such as "400 HP", " 1 meter high, "" 300 km / h " well attracted the public.
The car was named Miura. This word means a type of Spanish fighting bull.
Lamborghini became a victim of the victory of his orders came from all over the world. The development of the high-speed car and the first customers received late 1966. The car, in fact, has been selling cars until recently it has not been appropriately tested (no total prototype testing does not exceed 15,000 kilometers Miuras when the first sale was made). The continuous development of Miura model in the next versions: P400S and P400SV.

Versions and statistics of production Miura
Miura was produced during 1966 and 1973. It was this form three groups: P400 (Miura), Miura P400S (S) and P400SV Miura (SV). Replace model Alkontah Miura in 1975.

Miuras caught pop stars and businessmen.
Note that many professionals lack the stability of the car when driving at high speed (> 240 km / h). Although newer versions of Miura attempted to solve the problem (improved suspension, was the spoiler installation before more modern and lower frames), it did not help in this case, in no small extent, but not completely eliminate the problem.

The main difference of engine systems and technical gearbox separate lubrication. This modification allows the use of appropriate types of oil for the gearbox and the motor. This also facilitates the fear that metal shavings from the gearbox to move the engine and cause serious accidents. This is due to the improvement of the car gained additional carburetor 15 horsepower (11 kW) and has 385 horsepower (283 kilowatts) in total. Despite the Miura SV is mostly improved between all versions of Miura regarding handling, it was a little slow because of weight gain (due to the self-lubrication system, wider wheels, etc. ).

It was built 148 SV models in total. The first 52 units of their lubrication system of the engine and gearbox joints.

And he gave one of them to the position of Bertone in Brussels in 1969, showing another example of the Lamborghini stand at the Geneva Motor Show in 1981. The series production of the absence Miura SVJ Spider back.

The design and the interior of the Miura
And made the first sketches of Miura Giorgetto Giugiaro when he worked in the Bertone design company. When he left Bertone Marcelo GANDINI continued design work. Finally, the owner of the company, and the player Nuccio Bertone, i and t crossed before the final design of the Lamborghini.

Impressive

- Due to time constraints, the P400 model, presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966 has no engine. Lamborghini's engineers did not allow to install the engine compartment, so the car was exhibited in the auto show without it. For this "absence" will not be revealed, kept the tightly locked cap.

- Miura called a "super" first. This term was used by the author of the automobile LJK Setright for the first time when he found Miura as something with strange looks, advanced design, and incredible performance. Miura was described as a "super" is also due to its engine position. This is the first way to series of Lamborghini car, and he was in the midst of building engines.
