Lambo fans have a stocking filler coming in time for Christmas in the form of the first standalone book about the V12 Lamborghini Murciélago.
The wedge-shaped flagships were always spectacular, in shape, sound and performance.
ho, ho, ho and a murciélago - Lamborghini Murci  lago 1 - Ho, ho, ho and a MurciélagoThe Murciélago was an evolution of the Countach and the Diablo, and was as iconic in its time as its illustrious predecessors were in theirs.
This book examines the Murcielago in detail, while casting a look back through Lamborghini’s troubled history, to understand how the Murciélago came into being.
Ferrucio Lamborghini, Patrick Minram, Megatech, Chrysler, and finally VW-Audi, all played their part in the birth of this modern classic.
The book touches on the people and organisations involved in the production of this iconic car, before examining each of the model variants, and discusses the joys and tribulations of ownership.
All model variants are covered, with colour photographs and detailed diagrams, including the Reventon special edition.

The book discusses what to look for when buying and living with the car – what goes wrong and what goes right?

Lamborghini Murciélago by Thillainathan “Path” Pathmanathan is priced at £60.00 (UK) or $100.0 0 (US).
