1974-1978 LAMBORGHINI Countach LP400 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Although the Miura was a tough act to follow, Lamborghini did it in style with the Countach, perhaps the most iconic bedroom poster car of all. With a dramatic wedge style, scissor doors and a claimed maximum speed approaching 200mph from its 375bhp V12, the Countach was a concept car for the road. It also put right many of the Miura’s most serious problems, most notably its shocking aerodynamics. Cramped, noisy and impossible to see out of, the Countach is a true great – and currently undervalued compared with its forebear. For how much longer though?
