A Lamborghini Computer? Well first Lamborghini converted military vehicles for farm use, then they built tractors, then cars, and now laptops.

i recall some 13 years ago when I was still in HS, my friend's bf had an old Countach. It didn't run, but hey, it's a lambo.

There is no excuse not to own a Lamborghini these days. Everyone should be able to afford one:

I would say that you can buy a used Lamborghini Kazooko Geese.

..I will agree with cool looking, but in NO way possible would I call it beautiful, real life or not. Nor would I buy one if I had the choice at the time.

the countach is weird.
i would never call it a beautiful or good looking car at all, but it looks really cool.

@BR2
Countach looks much better in real life, like almost every other car. I made the same experience the day before yesterday when I saw one in Sinsheim and yesterday when I saw a Ferrari F12 on the Autobahn. First I did not like the F12s design but afterwards, well, I like it. If you get blind when you see a picture of it (:D), wait until you actually saw one. I guess it would look much better in your eyes then...

@ BR2+: Like Fangio Man said, it's a matter of taste, the Countach is not the most beautiful car in the world, and some people may even say it's ugly, be that as it may, you still can't deny the car's significance, this car helped make all of Lamborghini's full size flagships, IMO; Diablo, Murcielago, Reventon, and Aventador possible.

Beautiful exotic (I am one of the 94-98%). Lots of people had posters of this car on their bedroom wall when I was an undergraduate. It set the standard for exotic looks, and specs for a long time. Still looks great.

No, I'm sure the number is close to 94-98% of people. Maybe not everyone calling it the most beautiful, but one of the coolest and most epic - that's right. I'm sure: the only people who hate this car are some aggressive Ferrari fanboys (who hate on Countach and any other Lamborghini just because of Ferrari; but stand that Countach alone, and they would at least consider it a cool supercar), the others, IMO, are just vandals, who don't appreciate the art.

And still, the design is very futuristic. If not this car, there will be no Diablo, no Murcielago, no Gallardo, no Aventador, no successor of the Aventador... no Lamborghini at all. This car and Miura made Lamborghini in business.

And not just this epic design! The whole car is just magnificent! The big fire-spitting V12, the interior, the feeling! And unlike modern Lambos, Countach is RWD and has a manual tranny. An ultimate dream car.

As for me, Countach easily comes to top 25 best cars EVER MADE.

Well, it does not look beautiful but cool. And that is something. I do not understand why you do not like it.

@ BR2+: They probably smoking Gudang Garam in there. It makes everybody forget everything especially when they got the original flavour.
I still considered Countach as good looking because there still a lot car that lot more ugly than this.


User avatar

BR2+  7y ago

Prolly more like 63%

And modern? By TODAYS Terms? WHat are you smoking over there?..


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ Fangio Man: That design is timeless, it'll still look modern 20 years from now.


User avatar

Fangio Man  7y ago

I agree with Mental and Shaggy.

The Countach is a f*cking Space ship! It looks extreme, even for nowadays.


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ Mental: I agree, the Countach rocks. :D
