We all know the Countach and who builds it, but how many of us can say we really know the Countach. AutoLooks takes a look at the life and times of this great model, to see where it came from, what it did and why it left us. So, follow us on a journey through the life and times of this famous model.
The initial project which led to the Countach, was ultimately started when Lamborghini wanted to make the Miura better. Using the Miura as a base for their next halo model, Lamborghini eventually went further than the Miura would ever go.
By the time the project was finalized in 1971, the Countach project would fix all of the problems which plagued its predecessor and set the stage for the future. With a design born for the 70's and ultimately the 80's, the Countach soon became a staple of the Lamborghini image as it lived out a long life spanning two (2) decades.
But, like every great before it, the Countach would eventually have to pass on the torch to a new model. With some help from Chrysler's American design house, the Diablo would show us a new Lamborghini for the 90's. Unfortunately this successor would not live as long or hold such a title as the car it replaced.
In the end the Countach name would go down in both Lamborghini's history books along with that of one of the most influential supercars of all time. Today the Countach lives on as a Sian counterpart, but only in small numbers which have all been accounted for. We hope that the Countach will hold on in history and maintain its presence wherever it goes.
Live on Countach!
