Description

Author: Matthias Pfanmuller, ISBN: 9783952437001, 360 pages, Hardback, published in 2014

Valentino Balboni was never just another test-driver. He worked for Automobili Lamborghini, and for over four decades spent most of his time behind the steering wheel. The man himself has long since become a legend. While documenting the heady years he spent working at Lamborghini, this book talks about his colleagues, the disasters and the myths that surround this full speed brand from northern Italy.

Balboni will forever be intrinsically linked with the pre-digital era of the Lamborghini brand. In the meantime, Lamborghini has moved on without him into a carbon-fibre age, which is also covered in this 360-page, large format hardback book. For fans of the super cars built in Sant´Agata Bolognese, this extensively researched work, with over 300 rare images and over 100,000 words, is an absolute must. Even learned aficionados of the brand will be surprised by the wealth of information that the author has been able to amass on his journey through the stories of the man who had the "Best job in the World!"

    Received the book yesterday. Very well packed. The book is truly amazing, very well written and full of black and white and colour images. It is a shame that The Best Job in the World signed edition has sold out.
