Miura Celebrates 50th on the Roads of “The Italian Job”
As part of celebrations commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Miura, Automobili Lamborghini has sent two Miuras from its Museum down the route used in the film, “The Italian Job”, directed by Peter Collinson. In the opening sequence of the 1969 cult film, the cars traveled up the hairpin curves of state road 27 around Great St. Bernard mountain, in the heart of the Italian Alps.
During the event, the “fathers” of the Miura met in a warm reunion. Gathering together were engineers Gian Paolo Dallara and Paolo Stanzani, who were in charge of the technical side, and Marcello Gandini, who came up with the exterior design for Carrozzeria Bertone.
