Profile

The 1971 launch of the futuristic prototype LP5000 bought cries of amazement from the assembled masses. In fact, the Countach's name is itself a local Italian expression roughly translated as 'wow!'.

While the 5 litre prototype engine was sacrificed to a more practical 4 litre in the production LP400, the stunning Gandini lines remained mostly intact (trademark 'Gull Wing' doors included). The Countach differed from its predecessor, the Muira, in that it featured a longitudinally mounted V12 with transmission arranged in a tunnel between the driver and passenger compartments.

1978 saw the introduction of the 'S' with its revolutionary P7 tyres, 'phone-dial' wheels in widened arches and enormous rear wing. However, many enthusiasts believed that the purity of the original shape had been lost. It's all down to your personal preference.
