Lamborghini Miura Jota

The Lamborghini Miura is an iconic sports car that was produced by the Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1966 and 1973. This was the first of its kind—featuring a mid-engined layout seen in competition cars such as the Ford GT40 and Ferrari 250 LM, and also the De Tomaso Vallelunga—and was responsible for setting the standard for high-performance supercars of similar design. The name "Miura" pays homage to the legendary Spanish bulls that inspired its silhouette.


With its eye-catching design, the Miura drew huge crowds at the 1965 Turin Motor Show where only the chassis was shown. Impressed by the response, Lamborghini commissioned Marcello Gandini of Bertone to shape its body. At the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, the model was unveiled with its characteristic design of clam-shell hoods and a trunk compartment in the rear.

Miura models


The first generation of Miuras, the P400s, were powered by a 3.9 liter version of Lamborghini's V12 engines and had an output of 350 horsepower (260 kW). 275 P400s were produced before the model was updated, principally because of its high asking price of $20,000 USD (approx. $114,000 in today's terms). The engine also included an unconventional gearbox in its sump, which used engine oil for lubrication. As a result, frequent oil changes were necessary.
