Immerse yourself in this complete guide on Lamborghini's ultimate performance cars. Nearly 50 years ago, upstart high-end sports car manufacturer Lamborghini set the performance car world on its ear with its stunning supercar, the Miura. Wrapped in a svelte Marcello Gandini - designed body and powered by a 350-horsepower V-12, the Miura instantly made every other car look antiquated. In 1974, Lamborghini again shocked the automotive world with the mad Countach (an Italian expression one might utter at the sight of a beautiful woman), another Gandini masterpiece. Wide, low, and menacing, the original Countach completely recalibrated the supercar template. The Diablo replaced the Countach in 1990 and was the last of the Lamborghini supercars under the auspices of the "original" company. Audi acquired the company in 1997 and would bring significant German efficiency to bear, turning out supercars to a new template: the Murielago in 2001, the Gallardo in 2003, the Reventon in 2008, the Aventador in 2011, and, most recently, the appropriately named Huracan. Each one is an ultimate car. Many were collector vehicles from the moment they rolled off the production line. Beneath their stunning bodywork lie chassis and powerplants bristling with the best technology of their respective eras. Lamborghini's latest supercars zip from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds and hit top speeds in excess of 220 miles per hour. Their prices are equally staggering. Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is devoted exclusively to all of Lamborghini's ultimate performance cars. No enthusiast of these world-class sports cars will want to miss it!

To celebrate Lamborghinis first 50 years, authors and professionals from different fields narrate its history, present, and future in a completely new way. Lamborghini, one of the most famous and iconic of all automobile brands, will turn 50 in 2013 (1963 2013). Over the course of this half century, it has gradually established itself as a leader in its sector, integrating perfectly into the culture of its time and becoming a symbol of innovation in design and technology, as well as a phenomenon in culture and communication. This beautifully illustrated book describes every step of the journey, with references to cinema, technology, design and the work of the men who made their fortune from the brand. It is not the usual book about cars written for car enthusiasts, but a broader and more complex project with six carefully structured chapters (1. The history; 2. The technological innovation; 3. The design; 4. The people; 5. The image; 6. The future), accompanied by spectacular images of all the models produced up to now, revealing how Lamborghini made its way into the collective imagination and became the legend it is today. It is a large-format volume with 200 beautiful colour images, brilliantly evoking a surprising combination of tradition and innovation for all those who are interested in design, technology, material culture, communication and, of course, the classic qualities of Italian manufacture at its best.

Known as "The X-Hunters," authors Peter W. Merlin and Tony Moore have located more than 100 crash sites of exotic aircraft from Edwards air Force Base and Area 51. Together, they have recovered parts of supersonic rocket planes, stealthy spy craft, and vehicles that have reached the edge of space. Each story in the book profiles an unusual aircraft and the brave men who flew it. The authors examine the contributing causes of each crash and use then-and-now photographs to illustrate their findings. The stories end with The X-Hunters' search for the crash site and what they discovered. Each adventure combines C.S.I.-type skills with X-Files persistence, with a dash of Indiana Jones for adventure. Aircraft profiled include the YB-49 and a pair of N9M flying wings, X-1A, X-1D, VB-51, XB-70, SR-71, YF-12, U-2 prototype, and many more. The photos in this edition are black and white.
