Upcoming story about Ferruccio Lamborghini! https://www.cinecars.nl/en/persbericht-nato-sotto-il-segno-del-toro-teken-stier/
I’ve been in love with the Miura since 1967. I was 11 years old on a summer trip to Europe. We were staying in this little hotel on the Italian Riviera, and one evening I fortuitously stepped out the front entrance, and there parked in front of the hotel was the most jaw-dropping, exotic, absolutely gorgeous piece of automotive art ever created. I remember it being a burgundy red…just stunning!
Soon after, before leaving Italy, I found a toy model of the Miura in the same colour. I still have it, some 47 years later.
Beautiful film, genuinely nice guy and above all the most exquisite car of all time.
Another nice video, it takes collectors with 1) passion for cars, 2) the necessary funds to keep these machines on the road.
Dennis Varni and Dick DeLuna are both dear friends. Their car collections are outstanding, and I admire the simplicity and humble characters of both these two real “old fashioned” gentlemen. Both remind me of the old type gentleman racing drivers. I had the privilege to compete against Dennis and Dick during the Safari Rallye in May 2014. Times I will never forget and I truly hope that our friendship will last for many years to come.
Thanks guys, for sharing with us your wonderful cars.
First time I’ve ever seen a Miura with body colour sills. Wonder if it came from the factory like that or was painted afterwards.
Cool video as always
Where y’all been Mr Lange ? This aint the first and i doubt it’ll be the last I’ve ever seen but I’ll grant you the majority don’t have matching sills
Definitely not factory.. but looks much better.. Red Miuras came with Gold sills..
Wow! What a really genuine, nice guy! He also owns my two all time favourites, Muira & Dino.
6.25 – 6.31 most beautiful shot…
Another really, REALLY beautiful piece of work guys.
Every time I watch these videos, I always come away wondering, “What does this person do for a living? What’s THEIR story?” I know that doesn’t necessarily jive with what you’ve got going here, but a little background or bio on the owner would be absolutely fascinating and much appreciated.
A question, I really need to know this. I’ve seen Miura in person before (I’ve even had a ride in one), as well as many other supercars of yesteryears, but I’ve never noticed this: when he opens the engine cowl in the video, did you see, that exhaust pipes also bend down with the cowl? What’s going on there?
A nice nice car. It’s just, you know, wicked sexy.
I noticed them almost hitting, but didn’t even process they were tilting with the cowl. Good catch.
The exhaust tips are not connected to the exhaust itself. The actual exhaust ends somewhere under the car
Matthew, thanks for the info! So could it be that Miura is the first car with “fake” exhaust tip:) Someone please post a picture of the tilting exhaust tips!!!
Hello everybody! Hey JB21, this may be what you were looking for.
Great video and great blog, keep on working like this guys!
David Bonanno, thank you, and I love you!!!!
Y’all might just find this a bit more informative not to mention accurate and to the point ; http://www.miuraworkshop.com/tav31.html As you can see the tips are placed at the end of the exhaust but not hard connected having a swivel/depression/gutter point and the primary exhaust ends being rounded in order to allow the tips to move with the clam shell creating a loose if you will connection with the main system thereby allowing the fumes for the most part to exit thru the tips . I thought Mr Lange’s answer was a bit … errr … off .. seeing as… Read more »
That’s what I call car porn 😉
This makes absolutely no common sense to me.
But what a great guy, a beautiful car, an amazing and varied collection and fantastic attitude. Seems like a great person to hang out and talk shop with.
Thanks for sharing.
200S… one of my all time faves for sure. Big thumbs up.
I’m finding no evidence to verify your claim
“then when I go someone else will have them,”
I could enjoy all your beautifuls cars! I couldn’t buy them…but I could care them!
Enjoy the first production Lamborghini in this Dutch story, English subs are in the player http://www.cinecars.nl/een-krachtige-zwarte-stier/
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! What a pleasure to see the worlds most beautiful car actually being driven and used as it should. Too many are Garage Queens sitting unused as their owners wait for the value to rise. The Grandaddy of Super cars with a most beautiful sound as it wends its way down the road. Thank You!
1) Dennis Varni is a legend in the hot rod world but more importantly as evidenced here is the epitome of the bonafide ,Grade A Government inspected , St GearHeaditis and Stroker Mc Gurk approved .. GearHead 2) Could we please … once and for all quit perpetuating the Enzo vs Ferrucio myth ? The story at best is a blatant exaggeration of what occurred but is more likely a pure unadulterated creation of fiction .What really happened according to those closest to Ferrucio has never been fully disclosed and most likely never will be but regardless the myth is… Read more »
Nice video but couldn’t help to notice the amount of cars he has sitting in the garage and even worse his “living room”. So many beautiful cars surely missing the smell and touch of the road just waiting for him to quit collecting (or waiting that the years pass) to be able to be sold and hopefully return to the wild. He sure doesn’t drive them all during one regular year. Even more… there must be some cars, stopped for so long that he even forgot he has them xD This isn’t envy. I just want one car in my… Read more »
Such is the life of the ‘ collector ‘
PS ; Fausto . I meant to add .. trust me .. the collector mentality is even worse when it comes to the tools of my trade what with collectors out there having so many they can’t even remember what they own anymore never mind play them . If it wasn’t for the fact that the ‘ collector ‘ mentality is what keeps driving the prices to stratospheric levels I wouldn’t care .. but the reality is it is that collector / hoarder zeitgeist that is at the root of escalating prices be it guitars , cars or what ever… Read more »
When I was in this segment of the business years ago (our 1971 Miura SV was $34k), the big pricing complaint was the the buyers for glitz only vs. the true enthusiast purchasers.
…… the genuine irony today being its the Glitz/Celebrity buyers that are willing to pay/overpay thru the nose without even so much as a pause , blink or a moment of consideration : whereas most of the genuine enthusiasts are either getting priced right out of the market or have far too much sense to get into it … knowing what they know about the cars / maintaining them etc Hmmmn …. a moment of reflection may be in order after that one … it kind of saying something about the moment in history we’re in at present ….. hmmmmnn… Read more »
If collecting cars makes him happy, who are we to judge… I can only hope that one day I too will have the free time necessary to satisfy my passion in the same way Mr Varni has. Bravo!
