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!

Excerpt: The Lamborghini Diablo is a high-performance mid-engined sports car that was built by Italian automaker Lamborghini between 1990 and 2001. It was the first Lamborghini capable of attaining a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour (320 km/h). After the end of its production run in 2001, the Diablo was replaced by the Lamborghini Murci lago. At a time when the company was financed by the Swiss-based Mimram brothers, Lamborghini began development of what was codenamed Project 132 in June 1985 as a replacement for the Countach model. The brief stated that its top speed had to be at least 315 km/h (196 mph). The design of the car was contracted to Marcello Gandini, who had designed its two predecessors. When Chrysler bought the company in 1987, providing money to complete its development, its management was unimpressed with Gandini's designs and commissioned its design team in Detroit to execute a third extensive redesign, smoothing out the trademark sharp edges and corners of Gandini's original design, and leaving him famously unimpressed. In fact, Gandini was so disappointed with the "softened" shape that he would later realize his original design in the Cizeta-Moroder V16T. The car became known as the Diablo, carrying on Lamborghini's tradition of naming its cars after breeds of fighting bull. The Diablo was named after a ferocious bull raised by the Duke of Veragua in the 19th century, f...

The least documented era of Maserati s history, the Citroën period of ownership, is also the most misunderstood. Thanks to unprecedented access to Maserati in Modena and Citroën in Paris, this book contains a wealth of new and previously unpublished material. The era started with immense promise as the venerable Modenese firm, previously in dire financial straits, was modernized and reorganized, the clearest evidence being the replacement of obsolete models using old fashioned technology, firstly with the cutting-edge Bora, the most advanced and accomplished of all the first generation mid-engined cars, then with the Khamsin, the most sophisticated and competent front-engined car of the seventies, and lastly with the Merak, which afforded excellent handling and a beautiful shape to a whole new group of Maserati buyers. All these models are described here in detail, in addition to the Citroën SM, which prompted the French manufacturer to buy Maserati when seeking an engine for its flagship Grand Tourisme. Also covered are the stillborn Quattroporte II, the Bora Gp 4 racers, the Khamsin Spyder and the little known yet fascinating Ligier Maserati JS2 road and racing cars. Further insight into this period of Maserati history describes the engines themselves, including the special V8 which had been intended for the Quattroporte II after the initial V6, and the Citroën SM which was eventually fitted with this prototype engine. This is the definitive book on Maserati's years under Citroën ownership, an era dominated by the energy crisis, the introduction of speed limits, the quadrupling of fuel prices and political and social unrest, all of which formed a virtual tsunami which Maserati could not repel, leading to its closing and sale to de Tomaso with Italian government help.

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.
