2016 is a very special year for Lamborghini, as the Italian supercar manufacturer is paying tribute to the Miura, the forerunner of all V12 Lamborghini super sports cars, now in its 50th anniversary year.

To make a proper celebration, Lamborghini unveiled Aventador Miura Homage, a special edition of the current Aventador coupe. 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).

Also from outside you can notice the 20 or 21 inch Dione rims in either matt silver or gold. A metallic Miura badge on the side and black Lamborghini logo on the rear is installed together with a limited edition plate positioned inside the car.

The Aventador Miura Homage’s V12, 6.5 liter 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) takes just 2.9 seconds, and the top speed reaches 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.
