The plaudits have been flooding in for Joe Sackey, author of new Veloce book The Lamborghini Miura Bible. This definitive volume is the culmination of 20 years of diligent research, and Joe is deservedly now credited as being the world's leading authority on the vehicle. He makes the case that the Miura is nothing short of "The most beautiful sports car of the postwar era." Having himself himself owned, maintained and restored five Miuras, he knows what he's talking about.
"The Miura is not a car without its flaws," Sackey notes. "But what a benchmark postwar classic! A special car, it is to be enjoyed and indeed put on a pedestal. In terms of reliability and utility, it may not be the ultimate example of a sports car, but for sheer charisma and emotion the Miura is hard to beat."
Praise for The Lamborghini Miura Bible:
"It's as close as you can get to a trip to the Lamborghini Museum without leaving your favorite fireside chair. Of course, Sackey's first-hand experience gives him an edge over the usual armchair enthusiast." - www.luxist.com
