From what I have found, this has been around in concept form for a few years now.

Is it still planned for production?? Have not seen anything to confirm this??

The Lamborghini Miura Concept is a latter-day version of the 1966 P400 Miura, which many regard as the sexiest car ever from the raging bull. But unlike the current Ford GT, which is virtually indistinguishable from the original GT40, the Lamborghini Miura Concept--credited to Audi/Lamborghini design chief Walter de Silva--is inspired by the original Miura but is clearly more modern. The chin features aerodynamic winglets, resulting in a somewhat more contrived front-end appearance than the lovely original. But de Silva's design also has many nice aspects, including exquisitely detailed head- and taillights, wraparound front glass, brushed metal louvers over the engine, and four of the largest tailpipes we've ever seen.
Although the show car isn't a runner, it was designed on the Gallardo's platform with production feasibility in mind. If the response to the concept is amply enthusiastic, look for the Miura as a 2008 or 2009 model with a 6.5-liter version of the Murcielago's V-12 engine. While the original Miura's motor was transversely mounted, the new one would have a more conventional longitudinal configuration. Expect more than 650 hp and a price north of $350,000 if and when the Miura appears.

Pretty sure Winkelman shelved this one in '06.
