Description

The FIRST book on the Lamborghini Miura to be published in the past twenty six years – and enthusiasts agree it is long overdue. Written by a world-renowned authority on the subject, featuring, among other things, a never-before-published factory chassis production register, technical illustrations, studio-supplied images and exclusive interviews with the designers of the car: this is essential reading for any Lamborghini fan.

Synopsis

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.

Independent Reviews

"Including acres of period factory images, interviews and a complete factory chassis register, this is the ultimate book for any Miura fan." – The Daily Express
-

"He's done a fine job ... there's an awful lot of valuable material in this book, which, at least for the foreseeable future, really is the Miura owner's 'Bible.'" – Octane
-

"One of the best features of this book has to be the number and quality of photographs, both period and contemporary, of this most seductive sports car." – Classic Cars
-

"The only book of its kind, the Miura Bible contains over 400 photographs and illustrations. Sackey also includes a never-before-published factory chassis production register, along with exclusive interviews with the designers of the car. It's as close as you can get to a trip to the Lamborghini Museum without leaving your favorite fireside chair." – Luxist.com
-

"You'll find everything you need to know in Miura expert Joe Sackey's comprehensive 272-page guide, from the story behind the car's development to tips on what to look for if you're buying one. We wish ..." – Evo

-

"The photographs alone are worth the buying it for, but besides this, it is IMO [in my opinion] one of the best automotive books I have read! I really enjoyed the writing style & in depth information as well. Really glad to have it in my collection." - Jason M
