Meeting The Demand For The Lamborghini Miura - Web Exclusive

Aug 10, 2009

The much-acclaimed Lamborghini Miura Bible by Joe Sackey was first published by 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.

Notes to editors:
288 GTO specialist Joe Sackey is organizing the first-ever reunion of the cars in the USA, to be staged during the famed Monterey Historics & Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance Car Week in California during August 2009. He is also in the process of writing the ultimate book on the Ferrari 288 GTO for publication by Veloce in Autumn 2010.
