Lamborghini Countach

If there was one car out there that could have the distinction of being the worlds first automotive porn star, then the Lamborghini Countach would be it. If you were a kid growing up in the 1980’s then the Countach was what you dreamed about at night. It was bold, sexy and at days end, had just the right amount of raunchiness to make you think impure thoughts. Originally developed during the disco era, the Countach didn’t really come into its own until the mid-80’s when cocaine and high end porn were in style. It was ungodly fast for its day, completely devoid of creature comforts and would definitely kill you if given the chance. Simply put, it was wonderful. Time however has not been overly kind to the Countach though. Sure it still looks good, but where cars like the Lamborghini Muira will always be elegant and proud, the Countach comes across like the old chain wearing bald guy at the end of the bar.

For some of us, myself included, the Countach will always be the definition of what I think of as a supercar. For some reason though I think I’d be hesitant to meet it in person, as some things need to be left up on your childhood wall.

    ugh i cant stand that greatest ever thingy since the “experts” arent actuall experts (granted the F1 driver has some merit) and some of them dont even seem to be true carnuts. example nr 1 “supercar is a name given to a car that goes beyond a certain speed ie sorta somewhere between here and mars”. bullshit a supercar is a car that is built for the inner 8 year old its supposed to have rocketlaunchers and gatling guns and an engine the size of a small housing project. what he describes is a hypercar.

    Err they came with a spoiler on the hood? Growing up, I thought they were ugly. The design hasn’t held up these years.

    I am glad that the Countach keeps coming back as something to talk about even in Dec 2011. Comments always sound derogative, almost a little angry against the car, but it is like the ex-girlfriend that we want to forget but we keep talking about. That is the great value of the Countach, we don’t want it, we think it looks outdated, it is ugly and on and on. But we can’t forget it! I for one, think it has a nice spot in my memories when I think of the greatest supercar. :)
