The Italian Job Miuras

In 1966 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Miura impressed the supercar world when it raced onto the scene. It has since seen some of the greatest supercars follow its design with its rear, mid-engine layout which has become the go-to formula to create some of the best supercars ever made.

Once the world’ fastest production car, the Miura will be honoured at the London Concours show with an amazing eight examples for you to cast your eyes upon. Not only this, 2019 will mark 50 years since the premiere of ‘The Italian Job’. Despite the Mini Cooper being one of the main classic car faces from the film, it was in fact the Miura that captured the imagination of petrolheads in the film’s opening scene.

A special celebration of Ferrari will be at the London Concours this June.
