It was the first design to be penned by Lamborghinis design chief, Walter de'Silva. The show car greatly resembles the original Miura while its underpinnings are that of the more modern Murciélago.
Lamborghini president and CEO Stefan Winkelmann stated that the concept would not mark the Miura's return to production, saying that “The Miura was a celebration of our history, but Lamborghini is about the future. Retro design is not what we are here for. So we won’t do the Miura.”
The Miura concept is now on display at the Lamborghini Museum in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.
