However, it wasn't meant to be, but recent reports indicate that a Lamborghini sedan may come after all.

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.

Lamborghini Miura Spiritual Successor Being Considered

Lamborghini Urus prototype spied lapping the Nurburgring

  Lamborghini Urus prototype spied lapping the Nurburgring Look for the full debut on December 4.The Urus will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 making 650 horsepower. This is likely to be a hopped-up version of Audi's 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. In fact, you can see a new Audi A8 with that engine lapping the 'Ring just behind the Urus prototype. The video gives us a small taste of the exhaust note, giving a deep low burble with a few cracks and pops on lift-off.

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.

This is why we can’t have nice things. Owning and driving a supercar comes with some additional responsibilities separate from the expensive oil changes and general maintenance. Drive a supercar through a neighborhood of car-obsessed, internet-connected millennials, and there will be a swarm of smartphones eagerly recording video and snapping photos for instant upload to the internet. This could cause a bit of a traffic snarl, but more often than not intentions are relatively benign.
