While Walter de’Silva is responsible for the lines of the gorgeous Miura Concept, it wouldn’t exist without Marcello Gandini’s original design that inspired it. The incredible modern-ness of the Concept, and its faithfulness to the spirit of the original 1960s Miura LP400, demonstrates that the famed shape was considerably ahead of its time. Not a copy or a recreation, it’s instead a reinterpretation that captures the essence of Gandini’s design while taking it forward at the same time. Take the brushed aluminum louvers and lower side intakes, or the huge wheels that resemble the original mag-style units. Or take a close look at the highly-detailed headlights, which lack the “eyelashes” of the original, but whose reflector elements invoke them subtly. Perhaps the biggest difference is the longitudinally-placed V12 taken from the Murciélago, and that car’s advanced all-wheel drive system, which give the Concept a level of performance that the original could not dream of. The overall result is both gorgeous and fast, just like the Bernese Alps track, which is a perfect place to explore the upper limits of this rolling work of art.
