The Lamborghini Miura was officially announced at the Geneva show in March 1966.
The car was named "Miura" after the brave bullfighting in Spain.
The total height is only 1,080 mm, and the front and rear cowls open and close like a racing car.
The headlamps are pop-up type, and the eyelash-like decoration has become Miura's identity.
The development of Miura was very difficult, and the transverse midship engine was unreliable.
The load on the rear wheels was high, the chassis rigidity was insufficient, and handling drawbacks were also apparent.
There are a lot of problems such as gearbox troubles and vibration / noise inside the car.
However, since the official announcement, Miura's reputation has skyrocketed.
P400: The P400, which was transferred to the mass production program as if it were a prototype,
By strengthening the chassis rigidity, which was lacking in early 1968, and improving handling,
It also contributed to the reduction of vibration and noise.
From May of the same year, the suspension alignment was changed at the same time as the 70 flat tires were installed.
Part of the front chassis has also been redesigned.
P400S: The main change as an advanced version of P400 is that the maximum output of the engine is 20PS.
The maximum torque is increased by 2kg-m, and the generated rotation speed is as high as 400r.p.m.
The interior, which was unpopular with the P400, has also been significantly modified.
Since April 1970, ventilated disc brakes have been adopted as standard on the front and rear.
In the spring of 1970, one special car was built.
The basic design was the same as the production Miura, but the content was a complete racing machine.
He is all made of aluminum and weighs only 880kg.
Since it was made in accordance with the FIA ??Sports Code Section J Prototype Class Vehicle Regulations, it was named "J".
It was later called Jota.
However, this one Jota passed on to customers with racing specifications.
August 2, 1972 A total loss accident occurred and it was scrapped.
P400SV: At the request of the owner other than "J" who caused the total loss accident
The P400SV, which inherited the technology attempted by Jota, was produced in May 1971.
The engine has been powered up again and has achieved an improvement of 35PS and 3kg-m compared to the initial P400.

Produced a racing specification Jota,
Its low and fearless styling is still a popular and unabated supercar.
