1975 Lamborghini Countach LP400

Share on:

The Lamborghini Countach can be credited with having popularized, if not pioneered, the wedge-shaped, sharply angled look popular in many high performance super cars to this day. The 'cabin-forward' design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward in order to accommodate a larger engine, was also popularized by the Countach.
The magnificent V-12 engine sits just ahead of the rear wheels, with the gearbox further forward; one actually sits alongside it. The drive is then taken back through the engine's sump to a differential mounted at the rear. Suspension is by double wishbones with coil-overs (twin at the rear). The ride is firm without undue discomfort and improves with speed.

On this main chassis, a lightweight steel superstructure supports the handmade aluminum body panels. With the door open and looking into the car you notice that the two seats are very narrow and low between the immense doorsills and broad beamed transmission tunnel. From the driver's seat you can see forward with the usual limitations of a 3ft 6inch high car. Rear vision is by interior mirror only.
