Pistonheads claims that they've been hearing rumors from sources they trust that Lamborghini is planning to greenlight the Miura as a limited-production halo car, a la the Enzo, Carrera GT, SLR, etc.

If the rumor becomes reality, the thought is that Lambo would use the architecture from the forthcoming Audi R8 supercar and power it with a juiced-up version of the 6.2L V12 used in the Murcielago. Speculation sure is fun, isn't it?

It'd be nice to see. The Miura Concept, while not as jaw-droppingly beautiful as the car it pays homage to (very few cars are), is a stunner and an excellent modern interpretation of the classic. It's also probably not unreasonable to think that certain people at Lamborghini are irked knowing that the Audi Brand Group's next biggest attention-grabber is going to be the R8, and not a car wearing the raging bull on its hood.

A limited-run of few hundred world-class Miuras would fix that in a hurry.
