The Best Job in the World: Lamborghini Test Driver Valentino Balboni - by Matthias Pfannmueller
Standard EditionThe Best Job in the World: Lamborghini Test Driver Valentino Balboni - by Matthias Pfannmueller

Coterie Press are pleased and excited to have put together a special deal with Swiss publisher Hubelhouse, and author Matthias Pfannmuller to co-publish in the USA the book The Best Job in the World: Lamborghini Test Driver Valentino Balboni. Coterie Press will be the exclusive importer of this very special title to the USA. There will only be 400 English language copies of the Standard Edition imported to the USA, and they are sure to sell out quickly.

Additionally, Valentino Balboni has personally signed 300 exclusive Limited Edition copies of his book "Best Job in the World". Of these 300 copies, just 100 will be imported into the USA, and these will only be available direct from the co-publisher Coterie Press. To differentiate these Limited Edition copies, each one is presented in a distinctive matt-laminated blue hard cover, and comes with a numbered reproduction Lamborghini identity plate set in a recess on the back of the book.

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 incredible 'heavy-weight,' 360-page, large format, hardcover 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!”
