Synopsis

The Lamborghini Urraco: the little baby Lambo that was meant to beat the Porsche 911 and Ferrari 308, but which instead ran into a myriad of problems. This book describes what really happened, and why the car never got the chance it deserved.
The Urraco lived on in the form of the Silhouette and the Jalpa; the latter greatly responsible for keeping the Lamborghini brand alive in the 1980s. The full story of these V8 Lamborghinis is recorded in these pages, with exclusive interviews from the leading figures behind the cars. The book also includes detailed advice on what to look out for when buying one of these future supercar classics.
Hundreds of amazing photos, most never before published makes this the ultimate book on the V8 Lamborghinis.

Independent Reviews

"Author Landsem gives a comprehensive study of the design, development and realisation of Lamborghini's junior supercar of the Seventies in a story that sees design flair and automotive high art set against political upheaval and economic unrest. Useful and entertaining." – Classic Cars

"The key figures at the factory feature throughout the book, including New Zealander Bob Wallace, Balboni and Paolo Stanzini, all of whom are able to put the car into perspective in the company's troubled times … another real strength is the use made of many photos from Bertone, who were responsible for the look of the car." – Classic Driver
