The Countach’s design completely reinvented the sports car and pioneered the sharply angled, wedge-shaped look, which to this day remains popular in the world of sports cars.
Lamborghini Countach proved popular with car buyers selling 2,049 units between 1971 and 1990.
Not only was the Countach fun to look at but it was also rather fun to drive. It included the Lamborghini Miura’s 4-liter engine and was capable of reaching a top speed of around 180 mph (290 km/h).
A number of different models of the Countach were introduced during its 19 year production run including the 25th Anniversary Countach.
Built to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary, the vehicle featured some minor restyling. Although it featured elements that the Countach was already known for, it included a number of upgrades. It remained in production for 2 years, between 1988 and 1990, and 658 units were produced.
United States was Lamborghini Countach’s biggest market, which is why most of the vehicles were sold there. Around 1985, the US model of the Countach came with a price tag of about $100,000. Several upgrades were available such as a sound system and an aerodynamic spoiler however both of which would set you back from $5000 to $7000.
Is Lamborghini Countach the best sports car ever produced? Perhaps not however it’s an extremely fun vehicle that will forever remain part of Lamborghini’s history.
