The Lamborghini Miura

The Miura was first shown at the March 1966 Geneva Auto Show. At least part of the styling of the Miura was inspired by the US Ford GT-40. As in the case of the GT-40 the complete front and rear body parts were hinged to tilt upwards. The car was also very low, the roof was only 1055 mm above the road, with as little as 130 mm ground clearance.  Top speed was about ~280 km/h. With that large V-12 engine just behind your back it could get very hot in a Miura, and it was always very noisy. Nevertheless the car was a real success from the very start.  Judged in a number of surveys as the most beautiful car ever produced.  Click Miura to see images. 

The Lamborghini Countach

The Countach was first shown at the1973 Geneva Auto Show as a prototype. Two years later it was ready for production. The car was a show stopper from the very start. It showed for the first time the by now, Lamborghini signature swing up doors. It also displayed unique vertically mounted rear air intakes to go with its powerful 4 Liter engine.  Click Countach to see images


Lamborghini Diablo Images

The Diablo was presented to the public on January 21st 1990, at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo.   The design was the result of 5 years of work between Lamborghini and Chrysler Corp.  who owned Lamborghini at that time. The Diablo was still a true Lamborghini, low, wide and extremely fast, its top speed being about 210 MPH. The engine was a major upgrade on the Countach V12. The displacement was now  5.7 liters (4 valves/cylinder) and a newly developed "multi-point" fuel injection system was introduced. This electronic system has been developed by Lamborghini. The engine itself could pump out as much as 492 bhp with this new "LMI" system. In general the car was more refined than the Countach.  It improved over the years reaching to over 560HP in the 6L model. Click Diablo so see images

The Lamborghini Murciélago Images

The Murciélago was first shown at the Lamborghini factory in 200. The car while still a show stopper, is not quite as aggressive as the Diablo but is easier to drive and is more comfortable.  The design featured very angular lines, especially at the front, combined with magnificent curves with various air intakes and outlets to cool the massive brakes and a fabulous  new V12 engine. The interior of the Murciélago was also extensively redesigned.   Click Murcielago so see images

This is the newest member of the Lamborghini family. It was first shown at the Geneva International car show in March 6-10, 2003.  It is a smaller version of the Murciélago, keeping the signature front view of that car. .
