Ferruccio Lamborghini introduced his exotic Countach prototype at the Geneva 1971 Auto Show. A direct replacement of the much sucessful Muira, the car's wedge shaped styling design by Macello Gandini of Bertone Design Studio seized the attention of the automobile world.
This powerful mid-engined sports car was low & wide with sharpe edges that are present in the modern Aventadore. Sissor doors became a world renowned design & recognisable & much loved as a poster Supercar in period. The body was light & strong with aircraft grade aluminum skin over a tublar space frame.
One production started in 1973 the distinctive styling put the Countach in its own class. The combination of a stand out design, performance characteristics gave it the "Supercar" status.Throughout its production life, 1971-1990, the Countach was contineously refined.
