Jay Leno's 1967 Lamborghini Miura


Leno talks about his early production Miura, which was originally owned by the one and only Dean Martin.
Should anyone be surprised that Jay Leno owns a very early production model Lamborghini Miura? Of course not, but at least he takes the time to share the details of the car with all of us. In this latest episode of Leno's web series, the Denim Chin discusses the intricacies and particulars of his beloved '67 Miura P400. In an era when design ruled over everything else, the Miura was a game changer for Italian sports cars. It was also the first vehicle to be dubbed a "supercar" and it forced Ferrari to take note of its new Italian competitor.
Even after all of these years, it's still a drop-dead gorgeous design and has dramatically increased in value. But hearing Leno tell the story of the car and his in particular always makes for good television - or at least online video.
