To celebrate Lamborghinis first 50 years, authors and professionals from different fields narrate its history, present, and future in a completely new way. Lamborghini, one of the most famous and iconic of all automobile brands, will turn 50 in 2013 (1963 2013). Over the course of this half century, it has gradually established itself as a leader in its sector, integrating perfectly into the culture of its time and becoming a symbol of innovation in design and technology, as well as a phenomenon in culture and communication. This beautifully illustrated book describes every step of the journey, with references to cinema, technology, design and the work of the men who made their fortune from the brand. It is not the usual book about cars written for car enthusiasts, but a broader and more complex project with six carefully structured chapters (1. The history; 2. The technological innovation; 3. The design; 4. The people; 5. The image; 6. The future), accompanied by spectacular images of all the models produced up to now, revealing how Lamborghini made its way into the collective imagination and became the legend it is today. It is a large-format volume with 200 beautiful colour images, brilliantly evoking a surprising combination of tradition and innovation for all those who are interested in design, technology, material culture, communication and, of course, the classic qualities of Italian manufacture at its best.

Uncover the captivating history of the highest-performace cars in America, illustrated with beautiful photography. The American muscle car began not in the factories of the big three automakers, but in the garages and dealerships of a hot-rod subculture bent on making the hottest, highest-performance cars on the street. The Complete Book of American Muscle Supercars catalogs these amazing cars, along with the builders who unleashed them on the American scene. From Michigan's Royal Pontiac dealership and the souped-up Royal Pontiac Bobcats they built and sold, to the new cars from such fabled names as Carroll Shelby, Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge, Nickey Chevrolet, Don Yenko, George Hurst, Baldwin-Motion, Calloway, SLP, and Steve Saleen. This gorgeously illustrated book chronicles the outstanding contribution of the tuner/builder to American automotive history through the amazing machines they created. From the oldest of these muscle tuners commanding top dollar at today's classic-car auctions, to the latest vehicles by Ford and Chrysler, with their SVT and SRT divisions, this book gives readers a full and fascinating look at American high-performance in its purest form.
