Weekend mode: engage.
Some people that are cooler than all of us hung out together at a racetrack in eight beautiful examples of the Lamborghini Countach, driving around, revving in tunnels and sharing stories of trolling Coutach kit car competitions with their real Lambos.
Oh, damn, you think to yourself as you check your calendar, tea in hand, the Concours is coming up, and I don’t know how to detail my Countach.
CBS news legend and 60 Minutes star Morley Safer died today at age 84, only a week after he retired from the show, reports USA Today.

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and, most importantly floats like a duck, then it’s probably today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe crazy floatin’ ‘Lambo.’ Let’s see if this sort of sea-worthy Countach’s price is equally ship shape.
Lamborghini upgraded the original Countach to LP400 S specification officially after two prototypes were built for customers who demanded Pirelli’s new P7 tires on their supercars. Front lift, what front lift?

Here’s how Jim Carrey feels about fast cars: “I had a McLaren, and it was too fast for me, you realize ‘what am I eating.’ And it’s your testicles.” Get this and other gems of insight as Carrey tools around LA with Jerry Seinfeld in an old Lamborghini.
There’s really only one job a Lamborghini needs to do: blow your feeble little mind the moment you set eyes on it. Can the new overheating-prone Huracan match the legendary Countach?
Why yes, that is the best sentence you could possibly read on a Friday night. I agree.
A big V12 engine, an enormous board for a wing, and the fattest tires this side of an open-pit mine should make for a fantastic, beautifully balanced track car. Except the Lamborghini Countach was, by all accounts, the complete, total opposite of that.
Harry Metcalfe is here to answer all the questions you had about the Lamborghini Countach, but were too afraid to ask.
Conventional wisdom (and Wikipedia) tell you that the Lamborghini Diablo is the successor to the Countach, but it's not. That's because the
BMW i8 is.
The Lamborghini Countach is the most obnoxious of all the obnoxious cars ever created. So to truly put the icing on the obnoxious cake, you have to do something that will supremely annoy all the local peasantry, in their commoner's cars. Like parking it right on London's iconic Tower Bridge.
There are Lamborghinis, and then there are these Lamborghinis: the Miura and the Countach. The first was a beautiful work of art, the world's first modern supercar; the second was a brutal, violent machine, and the ultimate "poster car" for an entire generation of enthusiasts.

This past October, Ken Imhoff — the guy who spent 17 years building the ultimate Lamborghini Countach replica in his basement — told us he wanted to sell it. Now, it's on eBay, and the bidding just topped $75,000.
Okay, so this Countach owner crashed within yards of running his car at Brooklands, but HEY AT LEAST HE TRIED. Good job. Good effort.
