Lamborghinis have been infrequent participants in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, especially when compared to their M & F (Maserati and Ferrari) brethren. Perhaps it was their bad boy / rebellious reputation? It all changed for 2008 as Lambos were given their own class.

A major treat for Lamborghini fans was the return of the Miura Roadster. First built in 1968, it spent the majority of its life as a promotional vehicle for the Lead-Zinc industry in the form of the ZN-75. In 2008 a restoration back to the original Bertone Roadster configuration by renowned Miura restoration expert Gary Bobileff was undertaken and the result was proudly on display at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours.
