Lamborghini sports cars: books - history and technology

A book on Lamborghini cars? Here are illustrated books on the history, models and technology of Lamborghini sports cars.

Lamborghini: At the Cutting Edge of Design

Since the unveiling of the Lamborghini Miura - the world's first V12-powered mid-engine road car - at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, this marque from Sant'Agata Bolognese with the raging bull emblem has been one of the most famous and desirable purveyors of the supercar.
In its almost six decades long history, the supercar maker has constructed just four different engines: the extraordinary Giotto Bizzarrini-designed V12 that powered Lamborghini's flagships for the best part of five decades, a promising V8 that almost brought the company to its knees, a V10 that uses many Audi components and has been the mainstay of the marque in the last two decades, and lastly another newer V12, powering the Aventador.

However, what has really distinguished Lamborghini, has been a series of models with remarkable, groundbreaking shapes, each one a veritable design revolution. Cars like the Miura, the Espada, the Urraco, the Countach and the Diablo astounded and startled automotive fans just as much by their daring shape, form and aesthetic purity, as by their second-to-none engineering and trendsetting packaging.

This book (2 volumes with dust jacket in slipcase) celebrates the design history of Lamborghini through numerous period reports and previously unpublished images, delving into the extraordinary shapes and the intrepid personalities who made Lamborghini what it is today.

Lamborghini, 50 ans de Supercars

La firme Automobili Lamborghini est née d'une dispute entre l'industriel Ferruccio Lamborghini et Enzo Ferrari. Lamborghini était habitué à faire les choses à sa façon, si bien que l'idée de créer sa propre voiture de sport ne lui a pas semblé particulièrement audacieuse. Mais avec la Miura de 1966, la première supercar dans le monde, l'audace est justement devenue la carte de visite de Lamborghini.

Au cours des cinquante années qui ont suivi, Lamborghini a produit certaines des voitures de sport les plus extrêmes jamais commercialisées. De la Countach et de la Diablo à la Murciélago, à la Gallardo et à l'actuelle Huracán, Lamborghini n'a jamais levé le pied de l'accélérateur.

Supercars Lamborghini passe en revue cinquante ans de performances extrêmes à travers l'objectif du photographe James Mann et le texte détaillé de Stuart Codling. Dans cet ouvrage, qui comblera tout amateur de voitures de sport de haut niveau,un chapitre entierest consacré à chacune des supercars Lamborghini, illustré de photos de l'époque et complété de tableaux de caractéristiques.

Lamborghini has always produced emotions that are reflected in the pages of this volume according to a partially chronological order.
The book opens with the latest successful events, exploring the technological leadership of the Brand, which is famous for its V12 and V10 engines (the key to the outstanding performance of the current Aventador and Huracán), but also for its new departments for processing of carbon fibres.
