Default New Lamborghini Miura! Pics!

These are the pics of a concept which may be the all new Lamborghini Miura. The shape, still same as the old Miura, looks awesome even today. The battle between this and the Ford GT would be amazing.

Its a little TOO Ford GT in my opinion.... (side and rear).

IF this is actually to be believed im sure they could draw up some styling similarities between this and the new bulls of today...

Automobili Lamborghini brings back a legendary name from the companys past with the breathtaking Lamborghini Miura Concept. The Lamborghini Miura Concept? will be the first Lamborghini vehicle to be conjured from the talented pen of Walter de Silva, Head of Lamborghini Design. de Silvas other design 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 worlds most famous icons, the legendary Miura.

Automobili Lamborghini anxiously begins the New Year with the highly anticipated unveiling of the Lamborghini Miura Concept, a truly modern interpretation of the Lamborghini Miura. Currently celebrating its 40th Anniversary, the Miura was originally designed by Marcello Gandini and was first publicly presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show by Ferruccio Lamborghini and Nuccio Bertone. To this day, the Miura remains one of the most beautiful sportcars ever created.

The new concept model, which as of now, is strictly a concept with no firm date set for its production launch, is the inspired creation of de? Silva, the world-famous Italian designer. He has redesigned every aspect of the car while remaining absolutely faithful to the original form. 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. The restyling of the lower part of the body takes the car?s structural strength and aerodynamic performance to new heights, without disturbing the delicate aesthetic equilibrium. Even the touches of contemporary styling applied to the interior, the lights, and the wheels have been carefully measured to achieve a homogenous design that is both timeless and immediately recognisable.

And so a true design icon is reborn. ?Over the last two years,? explains Walter de? Silva, I have often dreamt of redesigning the Miura. Now, thanks to my new position at the head of Lamborghini design and the enthusiastic support of the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, I have been able to turn that dream into a reality.

The ?Lamborghini Miura Concept will be on show at the Lamborghini stand at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

I agree with Rehaan here. It looks far too much like a Ford GT competitor. Will it use the 5.0 L V10 ?

Well i did read somewhere while searching for some information on the new Miura that the old Miura was styled being inspired by the Ford GT40 (???) so, it wont be surprising to see the new Miura looking similar to the new Ford GT. The one in the pics above is i guess called the Green Concept

Oh lord, certainly the most beatiful car in the last 2 years at least. JUST LOOK AT IT.

I will pray everyday for Lambo to put it in production. Walter da silva is truly a genius.

Anyway, where will it slot in in the presetn range anyway?
