Is the bubble bursting? Stunning Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage fails to sell at auction

A super rare Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Miura Homage has failed to sell at auction despite attracting 93 bids.

It’s yet another sign the bubble may be bursting when it comes to the collector car market that’s been booming for the past two years.

This Miura Homage was offered as part of Collecting Cars’ Supercar Sunday auction which saw 44 supercars around the world all open for bidding at the same time.

One of just 50 ever made, this pristine example has just 386km (240 miles) on the clock.

This one is especially rare, being one of just three UK-delivered right-hand drive versions.

The model was released in 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini’s first supercar, the Miura.

Each example of the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage is painted one of the Miura’s 18 original colors.

Matte silver or gold accents are also applied to help it resemble the Miura that little bit more.


This one comes finished in Verde Scandal with silver accents, along with a Nero Ade leather interior.

One of the rarer color combos, it only makes this car even more unique.

Each car comes with the Aventador’s standard 690hp V12 engine driving all four wheels.

However, this example is one of just two that has its engine cover signed by former Lamborghini president and now Formula One Group CEO Stefano Domenicali.

It’s not the only case of cars failing to sell in the past couple of months.

In the same Supercar Sunday auction as this Aventador, an incredible Ligier JS P4 also failed to sell.

And just last month, a Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport failed to sell on Bring a Trailer despite a whopping $4.4 million top bid, indicating the reserve was sky-high.

Classic Lamborghini Countach models are also trading hands for less than expected, selling for well under the expected $1 million value many believe they have.

Is the bubble bursting?

This Miura Homage failing to sell is yet another sign it might be.
