Lamborghini Countach (1989)
Vehicle descriptionLamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary version (1989). The Countach was styled, like its predecessor the Miura, by Bertone's Marcello Gandini. Lamborghini's four-cam V12 was retained, though this time installed longitudinally. To achieve optimum weight distribution, designer Paolo Stanzani placed the five-speed gearbox ahead of the engine between the seats, and the differential - driven by a shaft passing through the sump - at the rear. The result was a delightful gearchange and a better-balanced car than the Miura.
