Top 10 Cars Every Guy Needs to Know
So, you call yourself a car guy. Fair enough, you’ve browsed on over to AutoGuide so you must have at least a little petroleum in your veins. But are you a true automobile enthusiast? Do you know your accelerator pump from your synchronizer? Here are 10 vehicles every car guy needs to know about.
Japan is one of those rare countries, like the United States, that cherish and worship automobiles. Cars are truly part of Japan’s culture, so it’s really sad to see a 25th Anniversary Lamborghini Countach, such as this one, sitting underneath a train station gathering dust.
7Tune.com spotted this red Countach sitting quietly for quite some time based on how dusty and dirty it is. With only 627 of these in the world created between 1988-1990, it’s a true rarity to spot one, never mind one that hasn’t been driven for a long time. The 25th Anniversary was the last of the Countach with a 5.2L V12 pumping out 455-hp. It’s sad to know that this exotic machined hasn’t been powered up in a long time. It even sports a Sparco racing seat and Momo steering wheel.
We hope to hear word that this vehicle is reunited with its owner one day. But for now it sits quietly waiting to be driven again, the way it was meant to be.

The government of Canada is auctioning off a Lamborghini Countach, with bids starting at the low price of $58,000. The vehicle was forfeited to the Canada Revenue Agency (the Canadian IRS) with only 54,000 miles on the clock.
The vehicle was originally listed for an opening price of $70,000 but failed to get a single bid. We’re sure that the Canadian government employees at the non-descript storage facility housing the Countach are just fine with the car sticking around. The government worker seen posing with the car probably had a poster of a Countach in his childhood bedroom.
