@ Fangio Man: Yeah, I just noticed the mistake, in 1971, Lamborghini still had the Miura!

Fangio Man  8y ago

Was not it built from 1974-1978?

For its time it was awesome! But whats hard to beleive is in over 35 years they could only improve the 0-60 from 5.5 to 3.8?

I try to explain better, but my english is not so good.
Ruoteclassiche is an italian magazine that tests only classic car.
It's a modern magazine, so the car are tested now.
It's not on old test but a modern test of old cars.
LP 400 is tested in july/august 2000 number.
They say this car was presented in 1971 (Ginevra) and the model they tested it's the first LP 400 serie which is deliberated in 20 march 1975. So, the say, it's part of 150 production prototype called by supercars lovers "narrow wheels" (205/70 - 215/70).
The later Countach version are all slower than this in top speed (Countach 1988, for example, reach 290,5) but faster in acceleration (exception 0-100 km/h) and better on the track.
If you need some more information of this test i can try to read and traslate other information, but in bad english as you can see.

Marco are you sure they have tested the LP400 and not a later version?


User avatar

marco  14y ago

Italian magazine RUOTECASSICHE Tested this car and reached 299,2 km/h.
316 is a stupid claim.
In the magazine they speak about 385 cv.
On the contrary acceleration figures are better.
Some examples from the test:
0-100 5.0
0-160 11,5
0-180 15.9
0-1km 24.8 - 219.7

...or 288km/h like Georg said... Does somebody here own one who could test this out? :)


User avatar

Georg  14y ago

288km/h ;)


User avatar

Amoxx  14y ago

Hmm... so it seems. Thanks for lighting me about the issue. Could somebody change the top speed to 290km/h?

The first production car officel tested in a car magazine test that went over the 300km/h mark was the 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO tested by auto motor und sport. The 400hp Ferrari reached 305km/h

The officle topspeed of the Countach LP400 was 288km/h
315km/h was the topspeed for the Countach Evolutione it was a prototype of the Countach successor with 490hp not 375hp...and a 5.2l V12 it was 440kg lighter as the Countach LP5000S (455hp 5.2l V12)

You should realize that the Countach was avaible from 355hp to 455hp and no of the production models even with 455hp could brake into the 300km/h range.. the LP5000S was with 295km/h in 1985 the fastest of all production Countach!

When this car was new over 25 years ago, they managed to go that fast in tests. If you want to brake 300km/h with this car nowdays you'll need one which is in very good condition. Plenty of powerloss in nearly three decades...

Weight does not matter much when you'r takin' about top speed. Power + Aero matters the most. And looking at specs I would give it no more than about 285-295 km/h.


User avatar

Georg  14y ago

In every europen car magazine test the Countach failed to brake into the 300km/h

Some places (websites, magazines and so on) say that it could and some say that it wouldn't. But why not, it ain't impossible with those specs. Nearly 400bhp and weight is only little over a tonne.

Can it really reach 315?
