Modern Lamborghini Miura Rendered, Looks Better Than Most Supercars

If you're willing to give a car gal or guy a hard time, ask the gear head to name a design that has gathered a larger fan base than the Lamborghini Miura. And, with each new decade that passes, Marcello Gandini's rolling sculpture becomes even more difficult to rival, let alone beat, since new limitations continue to be introduced (think: pedestrian crash protection and aerodynamic efficiency).

So, what would happen if somebody tries to recreate the 60s icon as a modern supercar? Well, the renderings starting at us from behind the screen provide a brilliant answer to that question.

From the famous eye lashes and the similarly-styled air intakes sitting behind the rear side windows, to the air vents adorning what is probably a frunk lid, there are plenty of Miura elements in this new-age design.

Nevertheless, the concept also integrates Sant'Agata Bolognese's current design DNA. And there's no better example that illustrates this than the rear view of the supercar. This is where we find exhaust tips reminding us of the Huracan Performante/Evo and a rear wing that shows serious Veneno influences.

"But the early Miuras didn't have their lines interrupted by such aero bits!" I hear the purists screaming (here's an example of what happened towards the end of the V12 machine's life cycle). Well, of course they didn't, which is why one of the renderings portrayed in the Instagram posts below shows the concept sans the said downforce instrument. In fact, the entire posterior of this version, which matches the front view image, is different, being closer to the original Miura.

Keep in mind that we're looking at design sketches here, with these always looking sharper than the production car (here's how the Aventador SVJ looks in this form). Even so, such a tribute to the Lamborghini Miura would be a memorable delight and a departure from the company's recent one-offs and few-offs, which pack a complex design (examples include the SC18Alston and the Sian, respectively).

Alan Derosier is the pixel master behind the work we have here. And you should know we're talking about a man who has also shown this kind of love to another Lamborghini retro icon, namely the Countach.
