From the Back Cover:

Lamborghinis are true exotics, rarely seen in public and highly coveted by sports car enthusiasts everywhere. In many ways they define the word "supercar."This is particularly true of today's cars, the Murciélago and Gallardo. Not since the storied days of the Miura and the LP400 Countach have Lamborghinis been so sharply focused, so right.Lamborghini Today: A Tempo Furioso focuses on the company's current offerings: Murciélago, Gallardo, Murciélago Roadster, and Gallardo Roadster. The story of each car is accompanied by top automotive photographer Peter Vann's stunning and imaginative work. Shot in Italy, France, Spain, and around the Lamborghini factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the photos’ backdrops are as fantastic as the cars themselves.In addition to showing off the cars, the book also discusses the latest engine architecture, comparing it to the classic 12-cylinder of Ing. Bizzarrini. Lamborghini design head Luc Donckerwolke offers his views on design evolution. A factory tour and a visit with Lamborghini model maker Egidio Reali round out the story.Lamborghini is on a roll in the 21st century, generating sales and reviews at an unprecedented level. Lamborghini Today takes you along for the ride, as you bask in the glory and power of these fantastic machines.

From the Inside Flap:

Lamborghini Today: A Tempo Furioso tells how a noble and revered Italian brand is forging its way into the future under the ownership of Audi AG. With strong support from Lamborghini itself, Stephan Grühsem and Peter Vann devoted more than two years of research to this book. The two were allowed unrestricted access to all of Lamborghini’s departments, where they held detailed discussions with engineers, designers, and production and management staff.Additionally, Grühsem and Vann enjoyed the inestimable pleasure of driving each new Lamborghini. They even took a Murciélago to Andalusia, Spain, to see for themselves where the celebrated Miura fighting bulls are bred. The results of their labors speak for themselves: fascinating photos and emotive writing that bring Lamborghini to life in all its facets.
