*Now available as a signed edition!

Coterie recently released a limited number of signed copies of ‘Best Job in the World’.

Valentino Balboni was present at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours and signed 50 copies of his landmark book ‘Best Job in the World’ that had been released in 2015. These 50 books have a signed and numbered book plate on page 3 set alongside the image of Valentino’s Lamborghini employee pass. 

25 copies of this signed edition were used for promotional purposes but Coterie have the remaining 25 copies (numbers 10-35) for general release and these are available exclusively through Petrolicious.

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 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!”
