  • Not everything from the late '70s was malaise-inducing. Today, it's up periscope for some Nice Price or Crack Pipe Italian insanity.

    To many enthusiasts and automakers, concept cars are considered a tease and nothing more. Meant to stimulate the public and show vehicles that “could be”.

    It is interesting! Few people know, but Lamborghini not only produces premium-class cars. The company also produces computers, perfumes and even women's shoes.

    The Periscopo is the purest, most beautiful iteration of the Lamborghini Countach . And this example is expected to bring huge money at.

    At that time you could even roll into the car shows with the car running, which was marvelous. The interior of the prototype was equally notable to contemporary audiences as the exterior, as it incorporated new technologies and bold styling decisions. This design language was originally embodied and introduced to the public in as the Lancia Stratos Zero concept car. The initial LP was fitted with quite narrow tyres of the time, but their narrowness and the slick styling meant that this version had the lowest drag coefficient of any Countach model.

    Lamborghini Countach - Overview - CarGurus

    To many enthusiasts and automakers, concept cars are considered a tease and nothing more. Far too often, concepts with radical, show-stopping designs do not make their way to production, as they were often halted by the bean-counters in fear that the costs will be far too great. Certain styling cues might see the light of day further down the road, but seldom does an entire automobile make its way from concept to production largely intact.

    This is not so with the Lamborghini Countach. The design language on the prototype Countach LP was designed to shock and awe the motoring press and public alike at the Geneva Motor Show.

    Angular, low slung, and aggressive, the Countach was the antithesis of the curvaceous automobiles designed in the s. When the production version arrived three years after at the Geneva Auto Show, the car was clearly more refined and ready for road use. Whilst the styling of the LP remained largely unchanged from the original concept, numerous changes were made under the skin to the chassis and drivetrain.

    The tube-frame chassis was completely redesigned to provide greater strength, and the cooling system saw a similar level of revision, as it now utilized vertically mounted radiators which funnelled air through a pair of scoops and NACA ducts. Meanwhile, the engine was reduced in size to a more reliable 4.

    Topped with six weber carburettors, the Countach produced horsepower at 8, rpm. According to the factory records, chassis was completed on 2 June and finished in Rosso with a Tobacco interior.

    The car currently has a Nero interior, which is understood to be original and how the car was delivered new. It has a rich and fascinating history file, with documentation dating back to November , when the original owners of the car got wind of the imminent release of the LPS and wanted to cancel their order for the LP! This did not happen, and the owners collected their new car on 2 June , immediately got behind the wheel, and proceeded to go on a grand tour of Europe.

    Two weeks later, the car returned to the factory for a routine service with 3, kilometres on the odometer! Its first owners continued to enjoy the car in Europe and the UK for several months, and after a service in June in the UK, with 16, kilometres showing on its odometer, the car was shipped to Australia, where it would call home for the next 36 years.

    Shortly after returning to Australia, the car was converted to LPS specification by the local New South Wales Lamborghini distributor by flaring the wheel arches and fitting LPS Bravo style wheels, a front spoiler, and a rear wing.

    The car was repainted in its correct shade of Rosso, whilst the engine was rebuilt almost two decades ago. However, the car remains in remarkably original condition, retaining what is understood to be its original interior. Today, the car presents and drives magnificently, and it would be one of the finest surviving examples of the early Countach.
