You have to dare that first! The Japanese tuner Liberty Walk got a legendary Lamborghini Miura (1966-1975) and modified it in an extreme way. In the history of Lamborghini was the Miura, after the 350 GT and the 400 GT, only the third car of the manufacturer ever based in Sant'Agata Bolognese. Incidentally, his direct successor was the fantastic Countach. The Miura was one of the fastest sports cars of its time thanks to its transversely mounted V12 mid-engine. Everything started with the Miura P400 followed by the Miura S and the Miura SV.
In addition, there were ultimately four copies of the Miura SVJ and a single piece as a Lamborghini Miura Roadster. Over 50 years later, of course, only a small number of this legendary sports car can still be found and of course these vehicles are for the most part well protected in some museums or among well-heeled vehicle lovers. But one copy was somehow in Japan at Liberty Walk and should be transformed. The Italian got the complete setup, which of course also means that the body is "destroyed" for all eternity.
But a successful one destruction it cannot really exist as such. At the front, the athlete got a large front splitter with "LB Works" lettering and the front flap got modified air inlets. The highlight is of course on the four wheel arches because here the Japanese built the well-known fender flares with their exposed screw connections all around, which allow the Miura to grow significantly in width, especially on the rear axle. The front fenders also got noticeably fitted kidneys and the rear is adorned with a huge ducktail spoiler lip.
The phenomenal rear view is rounded off by a sports exhaust system installed at the top, which opens directly under the tail lights in four large tailpipes. But not only the body kit makes the Miura so spectacular. Details such as the chrome-plated small mirrors, the Makrolohn side windows or the stark chassis setup complete the funky project. And the suspension is also what should provide for diehard Miura fans for the final gasp breath. Nothing else than an Airride air suspension was installed! It ensures a mega brutal lowering which in turn ensures that the beautiful low-bed wheel set, with the black painted rim star and the chrome rim seats, sits in the wheel well to the last millimeter.
Equipped is the wheelset with ultra-wide ADVAN Semislicks that promise a merciless contact to the road. And the interior is anything but standard. Among other things, there was a yellow painted Überollkäfig, a MOMO sports steering wheel and the rest was reduced to the essentials. For us, the Liberty Miura is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular vehicles of this year's Tokyo Motor Show and we are sure to hear and see some of this special automotive classic.
