Lamborghini Countach: The Lambo to End All Lambos

by Shane McGlaun

Back in the ’80s, you could walk into any kid’s room in the country and the car most likely to be on a poster hanging on the wall was the Lamborghini Countach. That was the exotic car of the decade, and is still the car I think of first when you say the Lambo name.

The car had wild looks, terrible visibility, difficult steering, questionable brakes, and a heavy clutch. It also makes the most glorious sound in the exotic car realm. While you and I may never get to drive one, the guys at EVO got to spend some hands-on time with a yellow 1981 Countach LP-400S.

The 4.0-liter V12 only makes around 300 hp – not much by today’s standards – but the noise it makes is brilliant. Check out the video to see the car in action on a typically rainy UK racetrack.
