Report – Lamborghini could bring back the Miura nameplate image

It appears the rumor mill is treating us to a hugely interesting rumor – there’s talk of a Miura revival as a 2+2 GT model that would be placed in the lineup between the Huracan and Aventador.

According to the latest report covering the Italian exotic manufacturer, Lamborghini is mulling the introduction of an all new model that would slot between the current Huracan and Aventador supercars. There’s not much to go about this rumor though – with previous reports painting a technical picture of the model making do without the carbon fiber monocoque chassis and instead relying on the MSB architecture deployed inside the second generation Porsche Panamera. This is a huge departure from the way things are done in Sant’Agata Bolognese but there’s even more – interestingly the speculations considers the new vehicle will have a 2+2 layout and be named Miura.

Front-engined Miura with 2+2 GT layout, MSB platform and middle line-up placement – to sum it up in one sentence this is enough information to have any Lamborghini fan go crazy and camp out in front of the factory to see it with their own eyes. While you should take all this with a healthy dose of salt, it’s doable actually. Production and development costs would certainly be low and this is not the first time a VW Group platform is used to underpin a Lambo since the upcoming 2018 Urus sport utility vehicle will share the architecture with the new Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga.
