LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH (1974-1991) CAR HISTORY

Car review on LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH

To top the amazing mid-engine Miura, unquestionably the most exotic car of the 1960s, Lamborghini had to come up with something decisively more dramatic. In that at least the amazing Countach succeeded superbly.


The original bright-yellow Bertone-styled prototype of 1971 was dramatic yet remarkably pure and unadorned compared with the more familiar models of the late 1970s and 80s. Where the Miura had been sensual and muscular, the Countach was futuristic, razor-edged, wedge, breathing aggression from every pore. Wild as it looked; the Countach was a much better developed car than the flawed Miura, even though it was no easier to live with, owing to the problems with the show-off lift-up doors.


It was a sensation to drive, of course: as well as being more forgiving in its handling — the gearbox was now mounted in-line, ahead of the engine between the seats — it was even faster than the Miura: good for 186 mph (299 kph), claimed Lamborghini, if you could find a stretch of road long enough. Most road testers managed about 160 mph (257 kph).


The word “countach" is a Piedmontese expletive meaning wow — or something stronger depending on how it was pronounced. The first Countach went to its owner in 1974 amid a blaze of publicity. However, the clean lines of the original became progressively more tasteless as the years went by, especially once the LP500 five-liter model appeared in 1982: its spoilers did nothing for stability, while big ugly wheel-arches housed improbably fat tires, matched by even bigger NACA ducts to get air into the enlarged engine.


It also became apparent that build quality was merely adequate and the car began to put on as much flab as muscle. Yet its unremittingly powerful character overcame such quibbles and kept the troubled Lamborghini - long since out of its founder's control - afloat through the dark abyss of the 70s and 80s when lesser models like the Urraco and Jalpa failed to find buyers. Having said that, the Countach never enjoyed the commercial success of Ferrari's much less radical Boxer and Testarossa.


The ultimate QV model - indicating Quattro Valvole (or four valves per cylinder) - bowed out in 1991. By then, its top speed was quoted as 200 mph (322 kph). In later years, the Countach had become a kind of parody of itself -a car for anybody with too much money and not enough taste - but at least it was recognizable.
