Seven Days of Dream Car Garages: Day Five by Sami Haj-Assaad

5. 1971 Lamborghini Miura

Here’s where things get a little crazy. This ’60s Lambo, with it’s mid-engined V12, is an absolute sight to behold. Forget the cheese-wedge-like, Picasso-ish Countach, the Miura is the car for me,  it’s sexy curves an open invitation to explore the 350 (or more) horsepower.

A Bertone design, the Miura is a classic example of Italian passion with the design being finalized before checking if the engine would even fit. My personal favorite would be the P400SV, which didn’t have the tacky eyelash look. Back in the ’70s the Miura could hit 60 mph in under 7 seconds, but who cared how fast it was, just look at it!
