Is your coffee-table feeling a bit lonely these day? Are you are a lover of great style, photography and cars? Maybe you just have an insatiable need for speed? Well, look no further – Lamborghini Supercars: 50 Years is here.
The book is a complete guide to that car you’ve always wanted – filled with 224 pages of impressive history and stunning photographs by Stuart Codling and James Mann (one of the world’s leading car and motorcycle photographers). The author Codling is a journalist and broadcaster who has worked in motor sports for over a decade.
Inside, you’ll learn about all of the different cars Lamborghini has produced throughout history: the 350 horsepower Miura, the Countach (an Italian expression one might utter at the sight of a beautiful woman), and the Diablo – which replaced the Countach in 1990 and was the last of the Lamborghini supercars under the auspices of the “original” company. Each car created is considered a collectible – and the book honors all of them.
Lamborghini’s latest supercars now zip from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds and hit top speeds in excess of 220 miles per hour. Their prices are equally staggering.
Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is devoted exclusively to all of Lamborghini’s ultimate performance cars – and this book is something all car enthusiasts need to have.

Every Kid at Heart Needs This Hot Wheels Coffee Table Book
Now that you’re grown and mature, it’s harder to justify whipping out your Hot Wheels for a "ride" around the apartment. Luckily, publisher Assouline has released a hard-cover coffee table book packing 300 pages and more than 200 illustrations of all things Hot Wheels.
Lay eyes on a Bentley and it’s abundantly clear the car is something special. Look then at the price tag and that suspicion is reaffirmed; a car that costs over $230,000 must be exceptional. Delightfully, it is.
Take the 2015 Continental GT Speed for example. Yes, it’s a swoopy luxury coupe – or convertible – that packs all-wheel drive, four sumptuous leather seats, and a 626-horsepower W12 engine into a 6,400-pound, breath-taking sled. Amazingly, that, though, is just the tip of the iceberg.
