Petrolicious Pays Tribute To Lamborghini Miura P400 S: Video
As rare as it would be just to see a 1966 to 1974 Lamborghini Miura in real life, I am not holding my breath that I’ll ever get to drive one – and with their high values, I’d probably be too nervous to do so anyway. Fortunately, Petrolicious is shining a spotlight on a gorgeous Lamborghini Miura in its latest video, revealing what is perhaps the best experience of driving this rare Lamborghini without actually being able to.
The owner of this 1970 Lamborghini Miura S is Dennis Varni, who has owned it since 1979. Like all car buffs, he fell in love with the Miura after a brief ride in one in 1970, and less than a decade later, this red Miura was sitting in his driveway. He refers to the Miura as an “Italian hot rod” with its beautiful lines and transverse-mounted V-12, and it’s this engine that really makes this video incredible to watch and listen to.
I would have to imagine that most of the fewer than 800 Miuras ever built are probably tucked away in garages and warehouses, but Varni drives his car. And drives it hard. You’re definitely going to want to turn your speakers up for this one.
Of course, if you can afford a Lamborghini Miura, your car collection is in good shape, and that’s just the case with Varni. His eclectic collection includes sports cars that might rival the Miura’s beauty, like the rare Maserati 200S, or a Jaguar D-Type.
