The Lamborghini Miura Bible

by Joe Sackey

Named after the Spanish ranch famed for its ferocious bulls, the Lamborghini Miura's flamboyance and engineering wowed the public when it was unveiled in the mid-sixties. Yet despite its devoted following, there has been no authoritative publication on the car for over a quarter of a century ... until now. Written by a world-renowned authority on the subject - who has himself owned, maintained and restored five Miuras - this unique book features everything the enthusiast would want, from a specially commissioned studio shoot capturing the historic homologation prototype USA Miura SV, to production statistics, specification information, paint charts, and much more. With over 400 photographs and illustrations, this is the definitive guide to an iconic supercar.
