Power and Speed

 

Now back to the Jay Leno collection, featuring his 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 which has a V12 engine that rockets out a top speed of over 170 mph and produces 350 horsepower.

Did you know that there were only 275 units of these were produced between 1966 and 1969. It was also considered as a success for Lamborghini despite its then-steep $20,000 price (approx. $114,000 in today’s terms). 700 out of 750 Miura engines had the gearbox in the sump of the engine, and the gearbox shared the engine oil for lubrication, which needed frequent and consistent oil changes. The only reason to separate it was the introduction of limited slip rear differential which required appropriate oil. The early Miura is the lightest model and is completely built in aluminum.

 

Power and speed are just some of the factors Leno considers with his car collection. This Lamborghini will give him just that.
