Fantastic Video: When Outrageous Was Possible – An Awesome Look At The Lambo Countach


Fantastic Video: When Outrageous Was Possible – An Awesome Look At The Lambo Countach

An admission, I’m 34 years old and whenever I see a Lamborghini Countach I am instantly transported back to the middle 1980s and the first time my little kiddo eyes spied one. There are a million things wrong with a Countach. From a back windown you literally cannot see out of, the doors you can’t get into, the windows that roll down three inches, ¬†lack of functional AC, and the problem that if you have feet larger than those of a mid-sized woman you can’t operate the pedals, they are a mess in 100 different ways. That being said, just look at it. There was nothing before it that looked that way and there has been nothing since. As this video points out, there won’t be anything else like it because there are freaking laws that literally prohibit the majority of styling and design cues used on the car.

I think that this video is boss because of the artful way that its shot and the fact that the owner of the car seems like a neat guy who gets exactly what the Countach was and is. A completely impractical, totally outlandish and excessive rolling statement from Lamborghini that was essentially an automotive pit fighter that walked around with both middle fingers raised up daring someone to say something.

Some day, I’ll park my pudgy ass in one of these things even if it is just to make the engine noises and pretend that it is moving. Mock me if you want, I’m good with it!

Thanks to Roy for the tip!

    Hell, you couldn’t even name it like that anymore. “Countach” is an Italian expression that roughly translates to “Holy shit!”, but in the context as if you saw a gorgeous woman, that’s what you said. The legend is that the first photographer allowed to see the concept uttered that word the second he saw the car.
