It has been said that “Lamborghini is a carmaker that makes engines, the job of the designers was to design the engine cover.” Yet, in its almost six decades long history, the supercar maker has constructed just four different engines.
However, it has been a series of models with remarkable, groundbreaking shapes, each one a veritable design revolution that has really set Lamborghini ahead of other marques. Cars like the Miura, Espada, Urraco, Countach and the Diablo astounded and startled automotive fans as much with their daring shape, form and aesthetic purity, as they did with their second-to-none engineering.
This book celebrates the design history of Lamborghini through numerous period reports and previously unpublished images. It delves into the extraordinary shapes and forms, as well as the intrepid personalities with interviews of design greats—Marcello Gandini, Luc Donckerwolke, Walter de Silva, Filippo Perini and Mitja Borkert—who made Lamborghini what it is today.
