The name 'Miura' was made famous in 1947 by the world famous bullfighter Manolete. He turned his back on a black Miura bull named 'Jslero' and paid for it with his life. From that point on, the ferocious breed of Miura bulls were known not just to die-hard bullfighting fans, and the Miura name came to sybolize fear, strength and power. Ferruccio Lamborghini visited the Seville ranch where the bulls were bred in 1962, and inspired by their majesty he took thier being as the symbol for his new car company. When his young engineers came up with a sportscar design for the ages in 1965, there was no question in his mind what the car would be named: MIURA! Lets share some REALLY cool Miura images - as if we need a reason to admire these seminal supercars from Sant Agata.
