The Lamborghini Countach is one of the greatest supercars of the seventies and eighties. Although most Lamborghini car names refer to bulls and bullfighting, the name Countach originates in the Piedmontese dialect. The word countach is an exclamation directed at a gorgeous woman to show appreciation of her beauty. Roughly translated it means ‘wow!’.
This supercar was powered by a mid-engined V12. It became an icon thanks to its wedge-shaped, sharply angled design and futuristic styling. The Countach was the first production car to feature scissor doors. A total of 2,042 cars were produced by the Italian automaker between 1974 and 1990.
