LAMBORGHINI is celebrating the anniversary of one of its most iconic and beloved models with a strictly limited Aventador Miura Homage, revealed half a century after its first mid-engine, two-seat, V12-powered Muira rolled off the production line.

On show at last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lamborghini is building only 50 Aventador-based special editions worldwide, all of which are already spoken for.

While it is unclear if any will make their way to Australia or how much each one costs, keen supercar spotters should look for a unique upper and lower body two-tone paint scheme and Miura badges along the car’s flanks.

Available body colours include Rosso Arancio Miura (red), Verde Scandal (green) and Blu Tahiti (blue) with the staggered 20- and 21-inch Dione wheels in either matt silver or the choice of a more head-turning gold.

Inside, all Miura Homages are fitted with a limited edition plate and have a choice of two interior colours – Nero Ade (black) or Terra Emilia (tan) – both with colour-matched stitching and carbon fibre highlights, as well as leather seats emblazoned with a Miura 50th logo in gold or silver.

Based on the Aventador LP700-4, the Muira Homage is powered by the same 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12, producing its peak 515kW of power at 8250rpm and maximum 690Nm of torque at 5500rpm.

With grunt fed through a six-speed automatic single-clutch gearbox to all four-wheels, performance for the Miura Homage is unchanged over the LP700-4 donor model, and will accelerate from zero to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and hit top speed at 350km/h.

The original Miura supercar first debuted in 1966 and is widely regarded as the car that sparked the mid-engine, two-seat, supercar arms race, as well as representing one of the raging bull's mos t coveted cars.

The original model was powered by a 260kW/355Nm 4.0-litre V12, sending power exclusively to the rear-wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. Unusually, its engine was mounted transversely, whereas almost all other mid-engined large-capacity motors are installed longitudinally – including the Homage.

With a 0-100km/h sprint time of around 7.0 seconds and a top speed of 276km/h, the Lamborghini Miura was the fastest production road car available upon release.
