It might really feel like this can be a reasonably new phenomenon, however you’d be unsuitable. Thanks to our eagle eyed pal Doug DeMuro, we now know an extremely beloved automotive has extremely faux exhaust suggestions: the Lamborghini Miura.
That’s proper, the grandaddy of all trendy supercars has faux exhausts popping out the again. It’s a shocking selection, however it is smart: The rear finish of the Miura is a clamshell, and when the engine cowl is open, there’s no place for bodily connected exhaust pipes to go.
The solely different choices would have been scraping the exhaust suggestions towards the bottom each time the engine cowl was opened, or utilizing recessed exhaust not seen from behind. Nobody desires that. The answer was to depart a spot between the precise exhaust and the guidelines – which means the Miura’s well-known suggestions are nearly fully for present.
