The Miura is the forefather of all the two-seat, mid-engined supercars we have today. It also started the tradition of V12, mid-engined Lamborghinis that will fling a driver into a canyon if he's not careful. As nuts as that is, there's something charming about that sort of purity. The Miura was simply the fastest and most engaging car that Lamborghini could build. At the time of its introduction it was the fastest production car in the world, and the Bertone bodywork has stood the test of time far better than its successor, the Countach.
