A classic Lamborghini Countach has been recently taken to 280 km/h on the Autobahn and the video posted below stands proof.
If you thought that the Lamborghini Countach is not capable of providing you with your daily dose of adrenalin anymore, think again, because a new video with the Italian supercar is showing it doing 280 km/h on the German Autobahn. The model in question has been at the Lamborghini event to celebrate its 50th anniversary and this wasn’t the only Countach present because it has seen 14 more of its brothers over there.
The Lamborghini Countach has been produced in just 2,049 units, between 1974 and 1990. The model has been designed by Marcello Gandini, at Bertone, and it was offered in a 2-door coupe body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The dimensions of the supercar stood at 4,140 mm long, 1,070 mm tall and with a wheelbase of 2,450 mm long. The Countach has replaced the Miura and it was put out of production by the Diablo which basically makes it the great grandfather of the current Aventador flagship.
Lamborghini has fitted the Countach with a V12 engine, with 3,929 cc in the LP400 and LP400 S, while the LP500 S had a 4,754 cc displacement. The 5000QV was offered with a 5,167 cc engine. The five-speed manual transmission was the only one offered. The 25th Anniversary Countach has been designed by Horacio Pagani and it was put together in 658 units, between 1988 and 1990.
