    Though I'm sure it's funner on the track than the original Miura (190mph in 1970 was a pretty crazy feat), it's definitely tackier looking, losing the unmatched grace of the original. Quite cool, but not SZ.

    Cool, but only barely. It should be noted though that prior to the Miura's debut in the mid 60s, Lamborghini mostly focused on manufacturing tractors used for farming.

    The 350GT and 400GT came before the Miura. But you're still right.

    Yeah maybe, but those models didn't seem to have a big reputation as the Miura itself back then so I have overlooked them.

    Thanks, I also read a Wikipedia article on Lamborghini once.

    Cool.

    Considering you're bringing up a fact that I'm almost 95% most people on this forum would know? Lets call it sarcasm, yeah.

    You're witty as ever, you know that?

    And by the way, last time I checked, I didn't even ask your freaking opinion at all about this matter.

    High Cool, not the SZ the regular Miura would get because this one definitely looks worse, like the later Countach models compared to the LP400. This version of the car could never scrape the top of the Ice Box the way the first Miura has.

    Looks like what a 10-year-old kid would do to a Miura on Need For Speed.

    Roof spoilers on a Miura. WHY.

    Low cool but, WHY in the **** would you ruin the Miura more, it's a perfect beauty!

    Those horrid aero fixtures drop a Sub-Zero car down to just being cool.

    I’m genuinely surprised more people aren’t voting Uncool or Seriously Uncool given how that horrendous spoiler ruins the looks of one of the most beautiful cars of all time.

    No where near as pretty as a standard Miura, but it's still a Miura. Low cool.

    You posted on an internet forum. You don't get to chose who responds.

    And we can do without the aggression.

    It's an uglier version of the car that reached the status of God's Chariot on this forum because it happened to land top spot on the Cool Wall last time around.

    SU.

    I voted meh on it. It's some early attempts at adding aero to a classic that doesn't really work. Not sure how it's performance changed, but it wouldn't make that aero any better for me knowing it performed better in any way.

    Meh.
    The OG Miura is waaaay prettier, this one is only an interesting novelty in its history.

    Guess Porsches can't be very cool either

    I was going to do it at first, but when I saw the Miura, if I voted SU or Uncool on that despite such aero fixture planted on the car, I'd feel totally guilty about it. It still looks awful but, keep the wheels, removed the spoiler and maybe keep the splitters or modify them, and I'd rock it.

    It's a Miura. It could be bright pink with lime-green rims, headlight eyelashes, cardboard bodykit, and an ISIS flag instead of a rear window and I'd still rock it.

    I mean you were talking about companies that made tractors. Porsche made tractors alongside their early cars...

    Anyway, what on earth does a car company making tractors have to do with the coolness of that said car?

    Yes, but aside from that, I never said they can't be cool, appreciated or anything similar to that, if that's what you're trying to assume here...

    I like extreme versions of performance cars, but they tend to not be cool and this one continues that. It's a Lamborghini Miura still, but it's one that looks like it was messed up by a teenager. Which is why I placed uncool as an option.

    The last thing the Miura needed was to be riced out. Plus the spoiler is in the wrong place.

    The fixed headlamps also kill the front end.

    Sub-zero, maybe you have to be as old as me to like something like this :)
