1968 Lamborghini Miura P400

In the supercar market, the Miura is the greatest and most influential model. Many call it the first true supercar. In a sense, this mentality comes from the cars radical specification in relation to common engineering of the time.

Unlike almost anything on the road, the Miura was endowed with a quad-cam V12, that sat transverse and behind the drivers. Immediately, everything from Ferrari to Aston Martin looked outdated by comparison upon release.
