Lamborghini Miura II by Joan Ferci
It may look far off from the real thing, but this could be the next Lamborghini. But not the one made in Italy. This one's slated for production in Mexico.
Now Volkswagen, which owns Lamborghini, builds a lot of cars in Mexico, but this won't be one of them. It's the brainchild of one Joan Ferci, an Argentine entrepreneur who acquired the rights to use the Lamborghini name from the Indonesian investment firm that owned it back in 1995. Since then he's been making, on and off, his own line of super cars for the Latin American market based on the old Lamborghini Diablo.
Now Ferci is planning a new factory, where he hopes to built a new generation of Latino Lamborghinis, including the Miura II you see here and a sport-utility called the Gran Toro. All the while the Volkswagen Group – by now one of the largest automakers in the world – denies Ferci's rights to the name, and may have a thing or two to say about this latest re-boot...if it ever gets off the ground.
