Wiesbaden – Miura Corse, a trademark of DIMEX Group in Erbenheim/Germany, is the first tuner worldwide to launch a complete sports program for the Lamborghini Gallardo. This range extends the direction given by the Lamborghini engineers and designers.

After the successful purchase by Audi, the traditional sports car manufacturer from Sant’Agata, Bolognese is on its way back to the top. The recently introduced Gallardo, the so-called ‘baby Lambo’, should help Lamborghini to increase sales. And therefore, it is Miura Corse who will take advantage of this large production, and provide an array of new features for what is to become the best selling Lamborghini.

Miura Corse offers new carbon fiber accents which enhance Fabrizio Giugaro’s original proportions. Either on a large scale (front spoiler, rear wing, rear spoiler, rear diffuser) or in detail (side parts, air intake, various covers) and underneath, with the engine cover, this program remains consistent. The carbon fiber theme find its continuation inside of the car where the standard panels are replaced by hand made accessories.

Just after the sales launch of this new ‘Modena hunter’, Miura Corse has added a sports exhaust system made of stainless steel and three-piece alloy rims in 19 and 20 inch to its range. An increase in performance is planned with an engine kit that will be offered. It combines fuel cooling, MC motronic, a carbon made air box and sports catalysts – hopefully lifting the Gallardo up to the level of its big brother Murcielago.

The tuners at Miura Corse have not forgotten about the Murcielago. For the top model, there is a carbon aero kit and a sports exhaust system which will be available shortly.
