When the 495bhp Gallardo was launched in 2004, motoring journalists were impressed - this stylish supercar combined the ferocity of Lamborghini with the polish and practicality of Audi and, being lower in price, it did not scorch the wallet quite as much as its bigger brother, the Murcielago.
Lamborghinis have always quickened the pulse, of course, and this book shows why. Packed with model analysis, driving impressions, technical specifications, buying hints, personal anecdotes and sumptuous photographs, it tells the story of this exotic marque, from the peasant background of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, to its burning ambition to beat Ferrari in the manufacture of supercars.

Recommended to anyone who likes exotic car books and expects good service and a quality product. Great pictures and information.
Wonderful cars that grandson wants
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I ordered it with some others and was not expecting this one to be as good as it was.
The Good = This book does a really good job of presenting a lot of information in a quick and easy to read format. The book covers history, people, the cars and even mentions the marine engine business. There is an article written by an owner who bought an old car and restored it. I was surprised how much information was there. Each chapter had articles included in it, as a way to get more information about a subject, without interupting the flow of the story. I loved the format. For the money, this is a great buy.
The Bad = Some of the pictures could have been better (there are still plenty of good ones). This book never gets too in depth on any one subject. It is more of a "little of everything" style of writing. Not a lot of new information for the Lamborghini book collector.
Conclusion = This is a really good overall...
