The Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum in Funo di Argelato will participate in the next edition of the Motor Valley Fest, the great widespread festival of the Emilia-Romagna Motor Valley scheduled in the city of Modena from 02 to 05 May.

During the event the Museum dedicated to the founder of the bull brand, will be present with a dedicated stand in the cloister of the Military Academy of Modena showing a model a car on permanent display at the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum: the wonderful Countach.

The Lamborghini Countach was one of the first cars to be designed with a design never seen before, the wedge style, engineered by Stanzani and designed by Marcello Gandini in 1971.

It was innovative from all point of views. The doors represent one of the most characteristic parts of the Lamborghini Countach. Despite being hinged on the front, the doors opened by turning upwards. This choice was necessary because of the large size of the vehicle.

The body was made with aluminum trapezoidal panels assembled on a tubular steel frame. This ensured a light and rigid frame creation of at the same time. Furthermore, to further lighten the structure fiberglass was used in the lower parts of the car. The eye-catching rear wing, was only installed upon request.

The name ‘Countach’, unlike all the other names inspired by those of famous Bulls brees, originate from a piemontese expression used to express a sense of awe and wonder and for this reason it seemed to the technical team the most suitable name for a “marvellous, already in the future” car.

Five versions of Lamborghini Countach were created:

  • LP400 (1973-1977)
  • LP400S (1978-1982)
  • LP5000S (1982-1985)
  • 5000 Quattrovalvole (1985-1988)
  • 25° Anniversario (1988-1990)
