Miura-esque paint for new Lambo

The Lamborghini Miura was originally introduced in 1966 and went on to provide the inspiration for a whole new genre of sports cars.
Although just 764 examples were built between its launch and its demise in 1972, its long lasting impact on the market has made it an icon and it remains a highly collectible classic, earning big bucks whenever a sale crops up.
The Lamborghini Miura was even partially resurrected back in 2006, when a concept car based on its retro styling was given its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, to mark the 40th anniversary of its arrival.
While this did not result in a new version of the Miura going into production, you can at least see some of its legacy in the brand new Aventador LP700-4 Roadster.
This car will be available in a colour known as Azzuro Thetis, which is directly linked to the hue that was applied to the Miura Roadster back in 1968.
This car will cost upwards of $400,000 when it hits the road, so it might be cheaper to actually seek out a classic Miura for sale, rather than invest in its high end, modern equivalent.
