Lamborghini Miura Roadster 1968

The 1968 Lamborghini received a tuning kit from Marcello Gandini and Bertone for the 1968 Geneva Motor Show. The result of their hard work and dedication is called the Miura Roadster.

The model is powered by a V12 engine that is able to deliver 350 BHP at 7000 rpm and 272 lb. ft. of torque at maximum rpm. It is also capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 174 mph. The power is being sent to the wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.
