Growing up in the 80s, If you had any kind of poster on your wall, you probably had one of these: a Lamborghini Countach. Known then, as well as now, for it’s mind blowing designs of excessive Italian passion and flair, the Lamborghini Countach was the ultimate symbol of “I’ve made it” when it was introduced in the mid 70s. Now, the mid-engined V12 super car royalty, named after an Italian expression of shock and awe, is considered a stepping stone in the evolution of super cars to which we see on the road today.

Car journalism site EVO was able to get its hands on a fairly mint condition example, specifically an LP-400 S. While its technology may be a bit outdated and its performance sub-par to what our sporty cars can even churn out these days, the Countach is still a mainstay when it comes to wild style, thrill and eye-popping excitement. Watch the in-depth review video above and for more of the supercar’s impact on design, be sure to check out the United Nude Lo Res concept car based on the wedged body of the Countach.
