Lamborghini: At the Cutting Edge of Design
by Gautam Sen with Branko Radovinovic and Kaare Byberg


Since the unveiling of the Lamborghini Miura – the world’s first V12-powered mid-engine road car – at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, this marque from Sant’Agata Bolognese with the raging bull emblem has been one of the most famous and desirable purveyors of the supercar. Valentino Balboni, legendary former Lamborghini test driver, has been famously quoted as saying “Lamborghini is a carmaker that makes engines, the job of the designers was to design the engine cover.” Yet, in its almost six decades long history, the supercar maker has constructed just four different engines: the extraordinary Giotto Bizzarrini-designed V12 that powered Lamborghini’s flagships for the best part of five decades, a promising V8 that almost brought the company to its knees, a V10 that uses many Audi components and has been the mainstay of the marque in the last two decades, and lastly another newer V12, powering the Aventador.

However, what has really distinguished Lamborghini, has been a series of models with remarkable, groundbreaking shapes, each one a veritable design revolution. Cars like the Miura, the Espada, the Urraco, the Countach and the Diablo astounded and startled automotive fans just as much by their daring shape, form and aesthetic purity, as by their second-to-none engineering and trendsetting packaging. This book celebrates the design history of Lamborghini through numerous period reports and previously unpublished images, delving into the extraordinary shapes and the intrepid personalities who made Lamborghini what it is today.

Author Biography

Gautam Sen

Fascinated by model cars and automobiles since he was a young boy, Gautam Sen turned his passion into a career. He established India’s first newsstand automobile magazine Indian Auto in 1986, followed by Auto India in 1993, and then the Indian editions of the German magazine auto motor und sport and BBC’s TopGear magazines. Sen has also been involved with the Indian automobile industry, working with Maruti Udyog as well as several other prominent automobile companies, and was instrumental in the design and development of India’s first sports car, the San Storm. Whilst working on several design projects, Sen had the privilege of collaborating with eminent designers such as Gerard Godfroy, Marcello Gandini and the late Tom Tjaarda.

Since 2015, Sen has been a Vice President with FIVA (Fédération Internationale de Véhicules Anciens). He has also been a member of the jury at several prestigious historic vehicle events such as Le Mans Classic, Chantilly Arts & Elegance, Pays de Fougères International Rally and YanQi Concours d’Elegance. Sen has authored several critically acclaimed books on automobiles: The Maharajas & Their Magnificent Motor Cars, The Car Design Book, Rolls- Royce 17EX: A Fabulous Destiny, A Million Cars for a Billion People, The 101 Automotive Jewels of India, Marcello Gandini: Maestro of Design, The Bertone Collection, Ballot, and Tom Tjaarda: Master of Proportions (the last five published by Dalton Watson Fine Books).

Branko Radovinovic

Born in 1966, in Melbourne, Australia, Branko Radovinovic came across a Panini card featuring a blue Lamborghini Countach when he was nine years old, which looked like nothing else, and exerted a magical attraction on him. This was the beginning of a lifelong fascination with car design in general and Lamborghini in particular. Through photographing, meeting key people and collecting original automobilia, he has gathered an extensive Lamborghini archive. He also writes for the Lamborghini club mags in Germany and the US, as well as various European car mags. Branko’s wish has always been to share his passion for Lamborghini through emotions that flow from the eye directly into the heart.

Kaare Byberg

Born in 1979 in Stavanger, Norway, Kaare (Kåre) Byberg has been fascinated by Lamborghini since he was ten when he came across a Countach scale model at the local gas station. Since then he has always had the desire to be surrounded by all things Lamborghini. As a result, Kaare has collected each and every of the official brochures, as well as countless other Lamborghini-related automobilia and material. Unsurprisingly, the Countach still reigns supreme in his automotive heart and mind.
