The Miura is a supercar produced by the Italian luxury auto manufacturer Lamborghini from 1966 to 1973. Initially designed to be only a concept car, it was the first of its kind to feature a mid-engine, two-seat layout. It was also the world’s fastest production car, roaring from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and topping out at 180 mph.
Over the years, Lamborghini made fewer than 800 examples of this two-door coupe, available in P400, P400S, SV, and SV/J iterations. The later S and SV models are more powerful and, thus, more desirable to collectors, who pay $1 million to $3 million to own one of these V12 beasts named for a breed of Spanish fighting bull.
