A road test by The Fast Lane got an indicated 201 mph on the car's speedometer (probably 195-199 in real life) and 0-100 mph in 10 seconds. This was achieved by a number of things:
The car had optional "race cams" in the engine, it was one of the European "downdraft" carbureted models, and it had a factory-installed high-performance airbox, probably boosting power up to 490 hp. Oh, and the optional rear wing was removed.

Its an okay car, Wasnt really huge on it when it was released or know, But ive always loves the sound it made, Specially with a nice aftemarket exhaust., Ive herd the interior, once your settled into it, Is nice n snug, Almost like a somewhat tight bed, Atleast from a few of my older teachers.

But given the era, Id rather have a 288 GTO, YellowBird and a few others.

Several years ago I've seen Countach 25-th and Murcielago in close. Countach looked so wild and aggressive, Murci was like a puppy next to it.

The Lamborghini Countach was the last production car with carburetors.

Awesome walkthrough:

 

It also shows a photo of a magazine test where this car achieved much better acceleration times than are shown here.
