Countach was one of the first supercars developed by Lamborghini. It was unveiled in 1974 and remained in production until 1990, during which period a total of 2,042 units were produced. The Countach won many awards and during its era, it was one of the fastest supercars on the market: it could hit a top speed of 207 mph in its LP 500 Turbo S version.
Now the guys over MotorTrend put it head to head against the new Aventador in the latest episode of "World’s Fastest Car Show." The two cars were driven by Justin Bell, who wanted to see if the new Aventador is as good as its predecessor.
According to him, the drive can tell you more than any history book, as driving the two supercars gives Justin insight into the impact the revolutionary Countach had not only on its eventual successor, the Aventador, but the entire supercar industry. It also drives him to use plenty of dirty language, which was carefully bleeped out, of course... Enjoy!
