Lamborghini Miura – Taking a break (ie:broke down) in the Downtown core

Hot on the heels of the Lamborghini Superleggera feature yesterday, comes this – a broken-down Lamborghini Miura… Pardon me, I mean – the iconic, forever desireable, unbelievably beautiful and stunningly seducing V12’d Beast, the Lamborghini Miura… er, broken-down… in the Downtown core. Many would also argue towards it being the very first of the actual Supercar breed as well… but that’s for another story.

Sad Miura, out of petrol

Things always happen to me in this way – After coming up with the initial idea for the Superleggera piece, later that evening I went for a bike ride and what do I stumble across in traffic…? The very car used and photographed for the feature. Then yesterday evening, after publishing the Lambo piece here on A.I., I was returning home after a weeknight jaunt out to Porteau Cove and back with my local classic-BMW club when I noticed an obvious kerfuffle taking place up ahead at one of the downtown core’s busiest intersections.

Amazing how short the Miura is - a mere 51" from road to roofline

To my amazement, I noticed the instantly distinctive rump of a red Miura being pushed around a corner. Naturally, I pulled over to see if I could be of any assistance for the driver and the sexy Italian (odd that I was the only person to offer help – jeez this city is such a weird keep-to-myself city). Turns out it was one of the fellas from the local Lamborghini Dealership returning from an event, having a bit of a hard-luck day… Needless to say, a flatbed was on its way.

Don't worry li'l red Miura, help is on the way

So, being the ever-mindful online automotive enthusiast that I am, I ran back over to grab the digi-cam and snapped away… wouldn’t you…?
