Miura Homage Lamborghini Huracan Is a Bargain at $230,000

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: the lines of a modern Lamborghini don't match those of classics like the Miura and 350 GT. However, if you want some retro flavor, this second-hand Huracan built in 2015 has it all.

So as you all know, 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary Miura, the car that started us on the mid-engined path. Lamborghini unveiled a limited-edition Aventador, which everyone called a shameless cash grab.

If they have the money to make the Urus, at least they could have made a new body for the Aventador, one that you can't cut yourself on. But no, they just slapped the paint from the Miura onto the V12 supercar.

But we've found a Huracan-based Miura tribute that somebody made last year. We're pretty sure that we've seen it before, but we can't put our finger on it. Anyway, it's for sale, and we think it's a bargain at $229,900. You can spend that kind of money on an Audi R8, so getting a Lamborghini with one foot in the past is excellent value.

Whenever we see this excellent combination of Rosso Mars paint and gold rocker panel with matching wheels, we immediately think of the Miura SV and what that car meant to the industry.

Many consider the Huracan to be a better performance car than the Aventador, and the paint combination should help this one keep its value. Normally, exotic cars are black holes for your cash, but this one could be an investment worth holding onto for a few years.

In the year since it's been bought, it has traveled 3,456 miles and currently resides at a dealership called Algar Ferrari of Philadelphia. Check out the mini photo gallery and tell us what you think of the black leather and matching luggage.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
