As historical books go, this entire series is worth owning as the information within is concise, informative and easy to read, albeit somewhat limited in length. It's not bogged down with excessive frivolous detail or profiles about the people behind the scene, rather it gets right to the point about the cars themselves. The focus is on how the cars were designed and built, and production history and maintenance/restoration insights are also provided. And at the end, there's 15 pages of detailed mechanical specifications on each and every model. This particular book, by author Jean-Francois Marchet, is mainly about Lamborghini’s most affordable model, the small-displacement V-8-powered Urraco, however it also covers the Bravo, Silhouette, Athon and Jalpa models as well. The chapters that show the engines and bodies being assembled I find most interesting. I have about a dozen Osprey AutoHistory books in my library, all of which I bought new when they were first published, and each and every one of them has provided enjoyable reading through the years. The entire series encompasses about 40 to 50 different titles, including Corvette, Mustang, Citroën SM and Saab Turbo, to name a few.
