The new Murciélago LP640 will be making its UK debut by going up the hill, while in the Cartier Style et Luxe paddock, original Miura models will be accompanied by the Miura Concept car, a retro-inspired concept car.

Designed in celebration of the Miura’s 40th anniversary and with no plans for production, the Miura Concept will be displayed alongside original Miura models. The Miura is said by some to be the most beautiful car ever made, and has been described as the first supercar. The Miura Concept car was the first Lamborghini vehicle from the pen of Walter de'Silva, head of design at both and Audi.

The Murciélago LP640 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The LP640 at Goodwood is the first of the new Murciélago models to arrive in the UK, and will be driven by factory test driver Valentino Balboni.

PistonHeads will be featuring a road test of the LP640 in the near future.

    So who drew the short straw on that one? Reckon Ted snaffled it all for himself or let one of his minions do it?
