A famous supercar classic roars back to life.
In the iconic 1984 song “Panama” by Van Halen, the engine of a car can be heard revving right after the song’s guitar solo. That car was the late Eddie Van Halen’s Lamborghini Miura, a legendary example of what is often called the first supercar. Whether it’s the beauty, the performance, or the iconic V12 engine of the Miura, there’s near-universal appeal to enthusiasts worldwide, and add that appeal to that of one of the most iconic bands and songs of the 80s, and this incredible historic supercar is one of the most admirable creations in the automotive world.
CURATED, known for uncovering and celebrating the stories of some of the world’s rarest classic supercars, purchased the Miura from Van Halen years ago, and collaborated with Lamborghini’s Polo Storico department to restore the car, true to the specifications that Van Halen originally opted for in the car. The project took a long four years to complete, but having been finished in 2023, came together just in time for Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary.
To celebrate the momentous anniversary and the completion of the restoration of Eddie Van Halen’s Lamborghini Miura, the car joined 26 other vintage Lamborghinis in a rally to Lamobrghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy factory. To complete the serendipity of the event, Ingrid, who was Ferrucio Lamborghini’s personal assistant, made an appearance. The intersection of some of the greatest stories and legends in Lamborghini’s 60-year history made this long restoration process of an important car worth every minute.
