What You Learn Driving The Countach And Miura Back To Back

Illustration for article titled What You Learn Driving The Countach And Miura Back To Back

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.

Besides the fact that both came from the same manufacturer, and had mid-engine layouts, the two cars seem like they couldn't be more different. But as this back-to-back test from CAR magazine TV notes, the two Lamborghinis both offer visceral driving experiences; both cars demand your total effort and concentration at all times.

Which one would you take?
