The origin of the Lamborghini Miura
If Ferruccio Lamborghini wouldn’t have met Don Eduardo Miura on his bull breeding ranch in 1966, many things would be different today. The fighting bulls impressed Lamborghini with their strength and elegance. Therefore, the name of the breeder as well as the bull as a logo strongly influenced the brand Lamborghini.
In the same year, Ferruccio Lamborghini presented the Lamborghini Miura, at that time the fastest car in the world. It was one of the first highly motorized two-seaters ever. With its fascinating exterior and the V12 mid-engine, the Lamborghini Miura brought changes to the automotive industry unlike almost every other car. It presented a top speed of 280 km/h and a sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6,7 seconds. With this performance, the Lamborghini Miura set new standards in the sports car segment. Consequently, Lamborghini now was established as a brand.
Not only the exceptional performance was remarkable, but also the design. The unmistakable “eyebrows” around the head lights instantly became the trademark of the Lamborghini Miura.
