DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition is the official book of Automobili Lamborghini, written and curated by Antonio Ghini and illustrated by Mitja Borkert, head of design at Lamborghini since 2016.

DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition is a true tribute, created exclusively in 60 copies worldwide, to the engineering and the cutting-edge design that have made Lamborghini synonymous with power, speed, and innovation. 

More than 380 pages for a journey through Lamborghini's history. From the birth of the iconic Miura to the revolutionary Countach, the captivating Aventador to the Huracán, every model is documented with stunning photography, technical specifications, and anecdotes. But DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition goes beyond showcasing these colorful super sport cars. It delves into the brand's DNA, unraveling the secrets behind Lamborghini's success and its legacy from 1963 to the present day.

Crafted with uncompromising attention to detail, DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition features match the luxury and exclusivity of the Lamborghini brand itself. The platinum edition boasts a specially designed, sleek hand painted highly-sophisticated carbon fiber cover with an elegant effect of alternating black tones to the iconic Lamborghini pattern. The covers are autoclave-forged and feature four bronze sculptures inspired by the typical features of Lamborghini super sports cars, gilded in a platinum bath. Platinum is one of the rarest and most precious metals in the world, and its lustre makes it the perfect choice to make DNA Lamborghini even more special and unique.

Each page is meticulously printed on handmade cotton paper and expertly hand-stitched by our master bookbinders, providing an immersive and refined reading experience.

DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition is a centerpiece of a set including several exclusive items.

The set includes a hexagonal Book Jewel, an aluminum bookmark with a modern design that adds an extra touch of beauty and elegance when the book is open. A black leather pad with classic hexagonal quilting is designed to protect the book while the pages are being turned. And finally, there’s the limited-edition rotating showcase with a black base, Automobili Lamborghini shield, and 60th Anniversary logo. All of this is enclosed in a logo stamped wooden box designed to provide safe storage and transportation, just like a work of art.

All pieces of the set are numbered and hand made in Italy.

DNA Lamborghini is the only book in the world with carbon fiber covers forged in an autoclave and painted by hand, using the same process used for the Lamborghini super sports cars.

The shield and the bronze bas-reliefs inspired by the typical features of Lamborghini's super sports cars, are made with the lost wax technique and then gilded by immersion in a platinum bath.

To make DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition, the Master Goldsmiths use a technique, which dates back to Roman times: it involves 4 different castings of white-hot bronze poured into 4 different moulds to obtain all the details, including the central shield. It is a complex operation that involves several steps and many days of work. Once the molded bronze has cooled, the resulting bas-relief is checked and chiseled to bring out even the smallest detail before being dipped in a pure platinum bath.

The pages of  DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition are made of handcrafted cotton paper, made of 100% high quality pure cotton cellulose. Each single sheet is obtained by laying out, shaping, pressing and drying the cellulose mixture. This operation is repeated more than 80 times for each book.

Cotton paper is white, thick and pleasantly rough to the touch. Thanks to its properties, the contents of  DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition, be they texts or photographs, shine with brilliance and character.

Each page of DNA Lamborghini is printed by means of platen presses using different plates, while the photographs are printed by means of modified rotary printing, slightly changing the composition of the cotton paper, to obtain unprecedented purity of the images.

Bookbinding is done entirely by hand. Bone folders are used before arranging the individual sheets on the wooden frames. Being faithful reproductions of the medieval instrumentation, they make it possible to keep the tradition alive still today and to make unique books entirely sewn by hand. Using a wooden frame, the craftsman begins stitching with needle and cotton thread. An operation that requires consistency, precision and patience and is repeated page after page until the completion of the book.

Once sewing is completed, DNA Lamborghini Platinum Edition is placed under a manual press for three days.

The result is an unparalleled book with jewel-like covers that combine hi-tech with goldsmith techniques, enclosing more than 380 pages printed and manually sewn one by one.
