      The House of the Raging Bull has brought back a legendary historical name with the introduction of its Lamborghini Miura Concept car.
      The Lamborghini Miura Concept will be the first Lamborghini vehicle to be conjured from the pen of Walter de’ Silva, Head of Lamborghini Design. De Silva’s other responsibilities include serving as Head of Design of Audi Group. The talented designer’s idea for the new concept was simple: a retro-inspired look heralding back to one of the auto world’s most famous icons, the legendary Lamborghini Miura.

      I typed the the same thing in the Miura forum. And it does.

      I like this view best. Really sweet looking and much sexier than the Gallardo (though I love the Gallardo too...for different reasons) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      ehhh....that's like saying a Ferrari 308 and Lotus Esprit look alike. They're both mid-engined sports cars from the late 70's with pop-up headlights.
      I think the Miura is much swoopier and more curvaceous than the Ford GT.

      Except for two things that seem clumsy this is nice and smooth.
      1. The chin spoiler/splitter/air dam thingy. Very clumsy and last minute looking. If the car needs aerodymanic assistance they need to design something that flows with the car better and is less obtrusive.
      2. The wheels look too big, too blingy, and too crude for the classic shape.
      Quick and clumsy p-chop:

      The article states: "To this day the Miura is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful cars ever created."
      ...those are big shoes to follow.

      I'm not a big fan of Lambo's huge clunky mirror rims, but they suit the italian flashy style. However, I think BBS RG-R's (with the little yellow BBS logo) would look perfect on it. I like the above photoshop with BBS rims, but I would have left the chin spoiler. Looks cool.

      The new car retains the extraordinary purity of line, characteristic of the original Miura: the designer’s intervention has been defined by refining the contours and eliminating any superfluous detail, in order to enhance the clean, simple lines and perfectly balanced proportions of the original that so impassioned enthusiasts.
      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I love the clean lines. It does look better with the BBS wheels in the photoshop though.

      Ummmm, GT40?? with the exception of looking like an uglier GT40, and those gay chrome wheels, pretty cool.

      There was a p-chop pic in road and track in the latest issue, it was more modern like the gallardo and murcielago, wihth a buncha vents and stuff that lookes pretty cool, but this is an awesome remake

      It looks somwhat smaller than the ford GT, but still amazing, I am always the first to make fun of people who say this, but it would be nice if this car didn't cost so much, more like a Lotus elise, perhaps, but I doubt they will go in that direction, it will probably be aimed squarely at the ford GT, and of course , if it is meant to fill the original shoes of the miura, it will be unattanable to most.

      Ford GT 40 (1966)

      Lamborghini Miura (1966)

      Ford GT (2005)

      Yes, I'd say all four cars bear a certain resemblance, which is fortunate for them as the design is beautiful.

      Wow, that car is simply gorgeous. I respect all the critical comments that folks have offered, too. The BBS wheels do simplify and smooth out the lines a bit and still look period-correct. The originals look like the blingin' NBA superstar or rapper's choice. The airdam is a bit less sleek than I'd care for, but this is a concept car, right? There's plenty of time to refine the look. The important point is that Lamborghini is on track with something special.
      That brings me to my last point. I'm totally in love with all the retro-inspired designs these days: Ford GT, Mustang, Challenger, Camaro, MINI, New Beetle... Did I forget anything? Some think this is lazy trendiness on the part of the designers. Rather, I think their efforts are all smart and respectful. The vehicles simply pay homage to and recall the glorious past without looking like outright copies. If VW brings us a new Scirocco or Corrado, I'll be walking around on cloud 9.

      If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
      Sorry, but this modern interpretation won't be considered one of the most beautiful cars of all time.
