Standing apart from their V-12 brethren, a pair of lonely red Lamborghini V-8 stepchildren find each others' company as a Jalpa joins a Uracco. Uracco is clearly a Giorgetto Giugiaro design, its delicate lines and balanced proportions quite a bit nicer than the full-bodied, perhaps even chunky, Jalpa in the foreground.
Two special Miuras were on display: a Shah of Iran Miura Jota light racer with no vent or light grilles, and an apparent show or custom car with non-standard interior, top and air intakes. An iridescent purple Miura Jota was on display at the Bonhams auction tent. Jotas are a rarity among the fantastic and already rare Miuras. There were "regular" Miuras, S and SV models also. In any form one of the all time mechanical and styling greats, I prefer Bertone's styling of the "standard" Miuras best. Some credit Giorgetto Giugiaro with designing the Miura during his time at Bertone.
A trio of yellow Diablos huddle outside the clubhouse.
