Most countries have, or at least had, its own vehicle manufacturer. Some of them turned out to be failures while others turned out to be a huge success worldwide.
Post here some little known, weird, or just interesting, vehicles from your country. Everything counts: cars, bikes, trucks, planes, trains, etc.
Produced in Brazil between 1977 and 1979. At the time of its production, Brazil was on a Military dictatorship, and car importing was illegal. Some companies decided to make their own cars only for the Brazilian market, while other smaller companies appeared. At the time, it was pretty hard getting a sports car, since it was illegal to import them from Europe. This is where Miura comes in. Inspired by classic European sport cars, it was a pretty big success, and nowadays they are extremelly rare.
It uses the mechanic components of a VW Brasília, a 1.5 dual-carburated engine making a spine-shattering 65 horsepower, with its rear-engine and the power going to its back wheels, but because of its lightweight fiberglass body, it was pretty quick. Strangely, not a lot of info about this car can be found online.
Miura closed its doors in 1992, but they made pre-ordered cars until 1995. Amazingly, there are plans for reviving the company, with both the Miura M1 and M2, planned to be released in 2018 and 2020, respectivelly, so if this goes well, we may see Brazil coming back into the automobilistic market.
I may post other Miura cars later, specially the Top Sport.
