(Countach at its finest !)
Few words about Countach (Though...you cant say few) :
Starting with the basic: The NAME.
Countach means ''Wow''!
And yes.......it IS.......''WOW''
It is a spaceship.It Came from Outer Space.
It is the reason i like Lamborghini as manufacturer.
I saw Countach for the first time in the movie Cannonball Run 3
( aka Speed Zone or Cannonball Fever ).
Best quote of the movie was when Flash (Art Hindle) said
against Vic and Alec with the blue Jaguar : ''Sucker this''!...
and then....Booooom ! Lift off !
Countach launch ...leaving the Blue Jaguar far behind !
Damn...that was one of the best Lambo scenes ever !
As many people said (and i give a plus to that) that car was every children's dream and was a Poster on the wall for sure, ehh?
Look at this shape. Astonishing from any angle of view !
I DARE to say : Yes. STILL IS the BEST LOOKING CAR ever made !
Yeah....yeah...yeah.....i also like Pagani Zonda guys....
BUT......this one is far more better than Zonda !
Its closest rival was the Ferrari Testarossa.
(Another favorite supercar)
Testarossa may look great ,but close to Countach means nothing !
Testarossa is a great car but theres no Kontest to that Lambo
in every way !
Countach has some other special features.
The rear window....makes.....no use,
when someone wants to park the car with the reverse gear.
You *MUST open the door and drive the car, almost outside
of the car and look back* --> I LOVE IT !
How about THE TIRES ?
Those 345 / 35 / 15 super tires never touched the street
with their whole surface !
Hmm.......never saw a.........''curved human'' to say :
''Those seats are comfortable to me'' !
The only time i saw Countach near me , was in 1997
( if i remember correctly).
We had a Fiat 900E , going for vacation to grandpa, with my dad.
The road (for unknown reason) was almost empty . like it was ours !
Traveling with 90Km/h , only 2 cars overtake ours.
It was a white Mitsubishi Lancer GLX and the other one
was a silver taxi Mercedes 220 Ε...
Then....after 10 seconds.......
A blue Lamborghini Countach ''low pass'' with 2,7 mach speed ,
rumbles the road and our ''car'' shake like earthquake ,caused by the wind !!!!!
5 seconds of view. Thats it.
I saw only the rear of that blue Countach with that magnificent rear wing...
And i swear....i saw a vortex from each side of that wing !
How , you cant like this car ? ehhh?
As my all-time favorite car.........i give 20/20
OK.Thats enough for now. Sighhhh.......
