At the Cutting Edge of Design

New edition

A richly illustrated two-volume love letter to an extraordinary Italian carmaker.

Since the unveiling of the Lamborghini Miura—the world’s first V12-powered mid-engine road car—at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, this Italian marque, with its widely recognized raging bull emblem, has been one of the most famous and desirable purveyors of the supercar. This lavish two-volume book celebrates the design history of Lamborghini through numerous previously unpublished documents and images, delving into the extraordinary shapes and the intrepid personalities who made Lamborghini what it is today. The authors make clear that what has really distinguished Lamborghini has been a series of models with ground-breaking shapes, each one a veritable design revolution. With the aid of more than a thousand images, the authors detail the design history of such beloved models as the Miura, Espada, Urraco, Countach, and Diablo, each of which astounded automotive fans as much for their daring shape, form, and aesthetic purity as for their top-notch engineering and trendsetting packaging. This deluxe history of one of the world’s most celebrated automobile marques is sure to delight Lamborghini aficionados and neophytes alike.
