our REVIEW

To this date this is still one of the most comprehensive books written on the Lamborghini Countach, lots of photos from inside the factory, mostly color photos, many of them taken during the actual manufacturing of the Countach, combined with many facts and figures.

Also note the Italian translation for this book was done by none other than Cristina Guizzardi and there's even a chapter on test-driving the Lamborghini Countach ... by Valentino Balboni.

Do keep in mind, as this book was published in 1985, the Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole that was introduced in March 1985 isn't featured yet, naturally neither is the 25th anniversary edition.

Original, first edition, published in 1985 as hardback, comes with a dust jacket.
