The Lamborghini Miura is generally regarded as the first modern supercar. There had been some race cars with the engine mounted right behind the seats before it, but the Miura put that concept into a car intended for public roads.
Designed by Marcello Gandini of the Turin, Italy, firm Gruppo Bertone, the Miura is often cited as one of the most beautiful cars ever made. And its 4.0-liter V12 engine helped make it the fastest factory production car of its day, according to RM Sotheby’s.
