OP LAMBORGHINI: 100 YEARS OF INNOVATION IN HALF THE TIME. Ed. by Luca Molinari and Raffaello Porro. Skira editore, Milan, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York. 184 pp. with 250 ills. (217 col.). 30 x 29 cm. ISBN 9788857218748 In English.
Publisher's description: Lamborghini -- one of the most famous and iconic of all automobile brands -- will turn fifty in 2013. Over the course of these fifty years, 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 and 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.), together with spectacular images of all the models produced up to now, revealing how Lamborghini made its way into the collective imagination and became the legend that it is today. It is a large-format volume with 200 beautiful color images that brilliantly evokes a surprising combination of tradition and innovation for all who are interested in design, technology, material culture, communication, and, of course, the classic qualities of Italian manufacture at its best.
