Lamborghini Miura Brussels 0 600x351 at Spotlight: Lamborghini Miura at Brussels Auto Show

Photographer Julien Morin has already brought to us pictures of some of the most iconic classic cars at the 2016 Brussels Auto Show, including this amazing Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe. The next car we’re featuring here is a 1972 Lamborghini Miura. And it’s so gorgeous, you’re going to hate every other car you see!

The Giallo beauty that is this Lamborghini Miura must be one of the best preserved examples of the car anywhere in the world. Miuras like this can fetch up to 2,500,000 Euros in auctions, and that’s what they cost today. Next year it’ll be 3.5 million, and the year after that it’ll be 5 million.

It is a bit of a bummer that prices have gone so insane, because Lamborghini Miura is a full-blooded supercar – many would argue the original supercar – that is meant to be driven. The car packs a 385 horsepower V12 engine which gives it a top speed of 290 km/h. Granted, the front-end tends to lift off at anything above 200 km/h, but that’s because of the unique shape of the car and therefore absolutely all right.

Then again, there aren’t that many Miuras are left and if locking them up in private garages is the only way to keep them around, so be it.
