32 Comments on "The Lamborghini Miura Is Still Untamed"
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.
The exhaust tips are not connected to the exhaust itself. The actual exhaust ends somewhere under the car
I’m finding no evidence to verify your claim
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!!!
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.
Hello everybody! Hey JB21, this may be what you were looking for.
Great video and great blog, keep on working like this guys!
That’s what I call car porn 😉
David Bonanno, thank you, and I love you!!!!
I noticed them almost hitting, but didn’t even process they were tilting with the cowl. Good catch.
“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!
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!
Such is the life of the ‘ collector ‘
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.
