A classic Lamborghini Miura supercar has been spotted recently in a condition which no exotic ride should have.
The Lamborghini Miura is one of the first supercars to hit the market and over the last few years, their prices have hit the roof. But what happens when you get one which is covered in rust and abandoned in a garage? Well, if you are a petrol head, you turn your head away and “wish” the owner “all the best”. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, this particular ride has been spotted in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, but what led to its condition or what happened to the owner remains unknown at this time.
Lamborghini has produced the Miura between 1966 and 1973 in just 764 units. The model had a transverse mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout, coming in a two-door coupe body style. It has been designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone and it is said to have instigated the trend of high-performance two-seater, mid-engined supercars. At the time of its launch, the Miura was the fast production road car money could buy and it was carrying a 3,929cc V12 engine under its hood, connected to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Miura stands at 4,260 mm in length, 1,760 mm in width, 1,050 mm in height and weighing in at 1,292 kg. This was the predecessor of the Countach.
