The Lamborghini Countach needs no presentation, it’s an iconic car made by the raging bull and the prices of which keep going up with every auction it attends.
When it comes to its design, not a lot can be said that hasn’t been discussed before either; it came as a successor of the Miura and was replaced by the Diablo, so the striking lines, which served as a basis for modern supercars in Lambo’s lineup, make it instantly recognizable.
However, when it comes to taking it out for a spin, the “classic car issues” kick in and while the seats are not bad, the fact that nothing is adjustable doesn’t help. The Countach is not friendly with tall drivers, while also has a heavy, unassisted steering and an unfriendly clutch.
So if it is not that pleasant to drive and it costs a lot of money to get one, what got collectors and enthusiasts glued to this supercar, besides reminding them of their childhood? Evo might have the answer to this question as the magazine recently took out a Lamborghini Countach out for a ride around the track, in a video that follows an even more expensive classic car, the Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing.
