Introducing to you the Lamborghini Countach, a mid-engined, V12 sports car manufactured by Lamborghini from 1974 to 1990.
This Lamborghini’s design pioneered other sports cars to mimic the bold wedge-shaped, sharply angled look that became extremely popular in many high-performing sports cars.
In 2004, American car magazine, Sports Car International, named the Lamborghini Countach number three on its list of ‘Top Sports Cars of the 1970s’; it was also ranked in the top ten sports cars of the 80s.
Geneva Motor Show had the honours to present the Lamborghini Countach prototype to the world in 1971.
Styling served great significance for the Lamborghini Countach, which was styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio.
Gandini was also the creative eye behind the design of the Muira, another striking Lamborghini design.
The Countach was shaped wide and low but not very long. It was angular and wedge-shaped made it appear flat.
The trademark doors were a remarkable design feature for the Countach, known as scissor doors, (first appeared on the Alfa Romeo 33 Carabo concept car in 1968) the doors were hinged at the front, they raise upward and tilted forward.
In 2014, at the RM Auction, a 1979 Lamborghini Countach LP400S Series sold for $1,012,000.
