"This is a very comprehensive story and worth a look by anyone attracted to this iconic sports car." –
Along with the Jaguar D-Type, the Lamborghini Miura has to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time. Despite that however, Joe Sackey's book, the 'Lamborghini Miura Bible,' is the only book on the famous Italian supercar to be published in the last 26 years. Including acres of period factory images, interviews and a complete factory chassis register, this is the ultimate book for any Miura fan.
Octane, January 2009
Amazingly, given the enduring popularity of its subject, this is the first book solely about the Miura to appear in almost 30 years – the last being Coltrin and Marchet's 1982 effort, reprinted in '99. Joe Sackey has given a large part of his life to promoting the Miura cause and if at times his prose seems a little breathless, that's simply a reflection of his sheer enthusiasm. He's done a fine job. While he's a Miura evangelist, he's also quick to point out the flaws in its history – not least the flexible approach to chassis records. Besides a large number of archive photos, there are superb studio shoots of several. individual Miuras, including the one-off ZN75 show car – which no longer exists, having recently been re-restored to its original, also unique, Spider configuration. The picture editing could have been more ruthless in places – similar pics appear on successive pages – but there's an awful lot of valuable material in this book, which, at least for the foreseeable future, really is the Miura owner's 'Bible.'
Classic & Sports Car, January 2009
'Bible' is a bold claim for any motoring title, and Lamborghini collector Sackey certainly crams this 268-page book with information and illustrations. Chapters cover the Miura's gestation, model development, the Spiders and super-rare Jotas, chassis numbers, maintenance, restoration and driving appeal. There's a spotlight on engineer Paolo Stanzani – which, surprisingly, offers more insight into the Countach than the Miura – but key figures such as stylist Marcello Gandini and New Zealand-born development engineer Bob Wallace get only token coverage in the text. There are plenty of color images of restored cars, including stylish studio work and action shots, but much of the content is thinly spread. Also, there's no list of specialists, index or bibliography. A seductive work, but no bible
