Two Classic Lamborghini Legends MeetAugust 27th, 2014
The guys from CAR Magazine managed to go hands on with two of the greatest Lamborghinis that ever lived, the classic Miura and the Countach. The Miura, first shown off in 1966, is known by most as the world’s first supercar. In this clip, they go up close and personal with a 1971 Miura SV as well as a 1985 Countach 5000QV, both of which represented the pinnacle of design and performance for both vehicles.
While the later Miuras butted right up to the production of the first Countachs, the Miura embodied classic, curvaceous Italian styling, while the Countach was the beginning of Lambo’s ongoing obsession with sharp, geometric lines.
And while Lamborghinis have never had a reputation for comfort or ergonomics, and historically have proven challenging to drive, these classics are truly spectacular when it comes to power and styling, and were instrumental in laying the groundwork for many supercars that came after them.
