"Nitro Nick" Boninfante, of Boninfante Performance Racing Clutches, the industry leader in clutches for pro nitro drag racing teams and many other forms of motorsports, announced that the company has entered the specialty/custom clutch market and their first new product is a clutch assembly for the Lamborghini Mirua.
The Lambo Mirua was only built from 1967 until 1973 with three different models, the Mirua P400, the P400 S and the P400 SV and replacement parts for these models are very hard to get, especially the clutch assembly.
"I had a friend of mine who owns one of these cars who came to me and asked for our help with the clutch," Boninfante said. "After I looked at it I knew that with all the technology we have today that we could recondition the pressure plate and flywheel and build a new clutch disc that would be better than the factory unit and would be a vastly superior to what's currently available for these cars."
"We built a prototype and it worked perfectly," Boninfante continued.
