"The Lamborghini Miura is the most beautiful car of the sixties. There. I’ve said it. You can't be objective when you're talking about automotive beauty. There's this idea that journalists are meant to be objective, platonic, even handed; set "
Justified Homage to the Miura
The much-acclaimed Lamborghini Miura Bible by Joe Sackey was first published by specialist motoring press Veloce in November 2008. However the entire first print run was sold out in less than four months, leaving a lot of people disappointed. Now reprinted, the book is widely available again.
Named after a Spanish ranch famed for its ferocious bulls, the Lamborghini Miura’s flamboyance and engineering wowed the public when the car 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.
This definitive volume is the result of 20 years of diligent research, and Joe is deservedly now credited as being the world’s leading authority on the Miura. He makes the case that the Miura is nothing short of “The most beautiful sports car of the postwar era.” Having himself owned, maintained and restored five Miuras, he knows what he’s talking about.
The book features a specially commissioned studio shoot capturing the historic homologation prototype USA Miura SV, to production statistics, specification information, paint charts, and much more.
