our REVIEW

A really nice book on the last Lamborghini to use the V12 engine based on the original design used in the 350 GT, the Aventador would receive a newly designed engine, so in a way the Murciélago is the last of the 'old' V12 supercars from Sant'Agata and the only model at this time with reasonable pricing on the second-hand market as prices for the Diablo are already rising.

The book first talks a little about the history of Automobili Lamborghini SpA, with a foreword by Tonino Lamborghini himself, the author looks into the Miura and the Countach (he owns a Countach QV) before he goes into the main feature of the book, the Lamborghini Murciélago.

All the regular models are featured, from the original Murciélago 6.2 to the LP640, both in Coupé and Roadster, over to the impressive LP670-4 Super Veloce, but he also mentions the 40th Anniversary edition and some other special editions from the factory, and a few third party tuners.

I have to admit the layout is sometimes a bit busy, and some pages only hold text, which gives the impression he tried to put too much information onto a limited amount of pages, but in the end this is a rather nice book and it deserves a place in my collection.
