Newly released by Veloce this beautiful book tells the story of the Lamborghini Urraco. It describes all the problems that beset this little supercar, and why it never got the chance it truly deserved. After its demise, the Urraco lived on in the form of the Silhouette and the Jalpa, the latter greatly responsible for keeping the Lamborghini brand alive in the 1980s, and both these models are also covered in detail in these pages. The unique Bravo and Athon concept cars are also described. The full story of these V8 Lamborghinis is lovingly recorded, including exclusive interviews with the leading figures behind the cars and detailed advice for potential buyers, as well as over 300 photos and illustrations, most never before published – making this new book from Veloce Publishing, the ultimate book on the baby Lamborghinis.
The Book of the Lamborghini Urraco is for sale now in all good bookshops or direct from www.velocebooks.com and is a fascinating, practical account of a supercar classic.
