3. 1966-72 Lamborghini Miura
Yes, there was a time when Lamborghini didn’t design their cars to look like futuristic shuttle craft. Nonetheless, when the Miura debuted it caused a revolution in car design and set the company on the path to creating a line of high-performance sports cars which continues to this day. The Miura broke with tradition by having a mid-mounted engine. The 4.0L V12 engine was crammed behind the driver but in front of the rear axle. Furthermore, the design of the body, while unfamiliar to the Lamborghinis of today, changed the way companies around the world designed their two-seater sports cars.
