As a child of the ’80s you can bet the car posters on my walls prominently featured the Lamborghini Countach. In fact I can trace my love of Italian exotics directly the flick “Cannonball Run” with Burt Reynolds. When those two hotties blasted down the road in that Countach I was in love in more ways than one.
I’ve never been sure how you actually say Countach, it’s probably nothing like we say it here in Texas- Coon-tosh. I read somewhere once that Countach is a statement of disbelief in Italy akin to saying “Gosh” here in the States.
The sound of the Lambo V12 and the incredible looks of the Countach are worth of some disbelief. The lucky bastards over at Evo got hands on with a sexy yellow Countach and filmed it for us. It may be the best 8.5 minutes of your day to watch the video. It always amazes me how terrible the visibility is out of the car. This may be the best sounding Italian sportscar ever made. The car in this video is a 1981 LP400 S, one of only 82 built packing a 6.0L V12 with six carbs.
