I shot these photos of the Lamborghini Miura in the context of its fiftieth anniversary and the centenary of the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini.

Giorgetto Giugiaro left Bertone just when Ferruccio Lamborghini has ordered the body of this car. But that's Marcello Gandini who then designed the Miura at the famous Italian workshop.
To resume the thread of history, we have used a major witness in the person of Piero Stroppa who had joined BERTONE very young and worked there at the time when the two designers have crossed. He confirmed that Gandini was indeed the author of the Miura.
