Most things evolve. They change slowly, gradually maturing sometimes in a manner that makes it hard to pinpoint when the old went out and the new came in. That is usually true with art, music and cars. It is not true with the era of the modern supercar however. There is a well defined moment when everything changed, and that moment is the appearance of the Lamborghini Miura.

The only thing keeping me from giving it a Frozen is at high speeds the car starts to act like a wing and wants to take off. That beautiful body design just doesnt produce any downforce.

Aye it wasn't stable at speed, but that makes it cool in a daring swashbuckler way, driving it was risking life and limb. The carburetors on the early models would sometimes have a problem with spitting fuel back out of the intake horns onto the exhaust, thus lighting the car on fire.

There was a brilliant article in motor trend classic a few months back. I'll have to read it again to remember details, but I was left thinking it was the only lambo ever worth having.
