  Lambo Looks Two Generations Ahead Lamborghini's latest concept is everything an Italian supercar should be: exotic looks, even more exotic materials, and a powertrain that is out of this world. For now, at least. Research Research New Used New & Used Make Model The Terzo Millennio concept is the fruit of a collaboration between Lamborghini and MIT. Yup, that MIT. The engineering school. The partnership is focused on energy storage and material science.The name of the car means Third Millennium, and that's what the car is supposed to represent. Not the next-generation road-fighting bull, but the one after that.

The Roadster was well received but Lamborghini declined all requests for a production car. Enter the International Lead Zinc Research Organisation (ILZRO) which was looking for a car to showcase some of the lightweight materials it produced. Lamborghini was reluctant to sell the company a production car for its showcase, but the prototype Roadster was another matter.

ILZRO dismantled the car and replaced many of its components with zinc alternatives. Reassembled and sprayed green, the modified Lamborghini Miura Roadster toured motor shows for a couple of years before being auctioned off.

The Lamborghini Miura is a sports car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1966 and 1973. The car was possibly the first supercar with a rear mid-engined two-seat layout, although the concept was first pioneered by René Bonnet with the Matra Djet in 1964.

In 1980 the car was restored and donated to the Brookline Museum of Transportation. After a lengthy stint on display and changing hands a fair few times, the Roadster eventually found its way to Adam Gordon who had it restored to its original 1968 specification. The cost of undoing ILZRO’s handiwork? Nearly £250,000. He then took it to the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2008 where the car came second overall.

Later in 2008 the supercar was sold for an undisclosed figure, but estimates at the time pegged its value at around £7 million. It has remained in private hands to this day with a brief outing in 2015 when Lamborghini borrowed it for a classic car display.

The reason for Lamborghini not putting the Roadster into production remains a mystery, as does the current whereabouts of the car.

For 69 years, the judges of the Grand National Roadster Show look to crown America's Most Beautiful Roadster.What people have begun to appreciate is the openly varied nature of the show. The AMBR will always go to a roadster and will always be judged by LA Roadsters. However, outside that trophy ceremony is a show that nearly every car enthusiast would love. The Roadster Show is more than just that award; it's a celebration of all things Americana.
