My favourite cars #04 by @sljivanono (Lamborghini Miura)
Hello everybody! In this series I will post pictures of my favourite cars. I am a huge car lover, and I especially love american muscle cars. So, enjoy, comment, upvote, repost!
Lamborghini Miura SV 1971
This is really a dream car! One of the greatest Lamborghini ever made! The car was the first supercar with a rear mid-engined two-seat layout. The Miura was originally conceived by Lamborghini's engineering team, which designed the car in its spare time against the wishes of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who preferred powerful yet sedate grand touring cars over the race car-derived machines produced by local rival Ferrari.
The car featured a transversely-mounted mid-engine layout, a departure from previous Lamborghini cars. The V12 was also unusual in that it was effectively merged with the transmission and differential, reflecting a lack of space in the tightly-wrapped design. The rolling chassis was displayed at the Turin Salon in 1965. Impressed showgoers placed orders for the car despite the lack of a body to go over the chassis.
