Amphibighini Proves the Lamborghini Countach Walks on Water

Amphibighini Proves the Lamborghini Countach Walks on Waterzoom in

I’m not sure at all how you actually are supposed to say “Countach.” I read somewhere once that the word is a statement of disbelief in Italy along the lines of saying “gosh” here in the states. In Texas, we just call it the “Coon-tosh.”

This isn’t a real Lamborghini Countach, but it does one thing an actual Lambo can’t – it floats. This unique vehicle started life as a kit car on a tube frame. The builder says that the dimensions are right; the panels were supposedly molded directly from the panels of a real Countach 5000QV. It’s just an amphibious version of the car.

Why would you want a floating Countach? Why wouldn’t you? It would be the coolest boat at the lake. The car is officially called the Z1A, but I agree with Road & Track, “Amphibighini” is much more appropriate.

The car even has a fancy suspension that pulls the wheels into the wheel wells for use in the water. It even has a smoke screen button. Clearly, this car will live out your James Bond fantasies. Too bad it doesn’t turn into a submarine. This car can be your on eBay UK for £18,995, or about $27,000, though it apparently needs some work – which is pretty much the case for any boat ever.
