Lamborghini recreates “The Italian Job” scene with 2 Miuras

To celebrate a major milestone, Lamborghini has taken two of its museum-quality Miuras to the section of Italian highway made famous by the opening of 1969’s The Italian Job.

The two Miuras came from the official Lamborghini museum located at the automaker’s headquarters in Italy and were taken to the St. Bernard Pass near the border with Switzerland.

The celebration isn’t centered around the 1969 film starring Michael Caine, though. Instead, it is part of Lamborghini’s year-long commemoration of the Miura’s 50th birthday. While you might have expected to see Michael Caine step out of one of the cars, they were actually piloted by the “fathers” of the Miura itself: Engineers Gian Paolo Dallara and Paolo Stanzani along with designer Marcello Gandini from Carrozzeria Bertone. Read more and watch the video at Motor Authority…
