1974 Lamborghini Countach
As its name suggests, the Lamborghini Countach is an exotic supercar. The prototype of this road-going monster was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1971. It featured an over-the-top design with performance to match. The company took many orders for the car at the show that year.
The market version went into production in late 1973 as a ’74 model. It featured a broad, flat windshield with a single wiper, an aggressive front end and a chiseled, angular design. Wild looking scissor doors were part of the formula as well. With its distinctive design the car is best known for popularizing the futuristic look of contemporary supercars.
Early models were powered by a longitudinally mounted 4.0-liter V12. Later versions featured larger-displacement, and correspondingly more powerful engines.
