Lamborghini Miura Roadster

The Lamborghini Miura Roadster one-off.

Vehicle Overview

The Lamborghini Miura Roadster emerged as a captivating concept during the prestigious 1968 Brussels Motor Show, captivating even the discerning eye of Lamborghini’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini. Crafted by the brilliant mind of Marcello Gandini under the banner of Bertone, this masterpiece represented a daring departure from convention—an open-top rendition of the iconic Miura that pushed the boundaries of automotive design. Despite its overwhelming reception and the excitement surrounding its potential production, the dream of seeing the Miura Roadster on the open road was unfortunately dashed. Lamborghini declared the endeavor unfeasible for production, relegating this extraordinary creation to the status of a one-off marvel. Remarkably, the Miura Roadster’s uniqueness extends beyond its design and exclusivity. Surprisingly absent from Sant’Agata’s official records, its chassis number remains an enigma, further adding to its mystique and allure. Following its stint as a showstopper on the international stage, the Miura Roadster underwent a transformation, its lustrous exterior cloaked in a resplendent shade of green. It found a new home with the International Lead Zinc Research Organisation, becoming a symbol of automotive ingenuity and innovation. The Miura Roadster embarked on a globe-trotting journey, gracing exhibitions in renowned cities such as Paris, Los Angeles, Detroit, Tokyo, and London, captivating audiences with its timeless beauty and unparalleled charm. In 1981, the journey of the Miura Roadster culminated in its acquisition by the esteemed Boston Museum of Transportation, where it continues to stand as a testament to Lamborghini’s legacy of pushing the boundaries of automotive excellence. A symbol of innovation, craftsmanship, and the enduring spirit of automotive enthusiasts worldwide, the Lamborghini Miura Roadster remains an indelible icon in the annals of automotive history.
