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.
