Review And Test Drive Of A 1977 Lamborghini Countach

I am tired of seeing Lamborghinis.  If you watch YouTube very much, there are hundreds of videos of Lamborghinis crashing while being driven too fast by inexperienced drivers.  Even spinning out and sliding into a curb in a Lamborghini is enough to do $100,000 in damage or completely total the vehicle.  These cars and drivers are a puzzling mix of immaturity, bad judgement, stupidity, and money.

However, there is an old guy named Harry who lives in England, who owns about twenty rare or valuable vehicles, who was lent a 1977 Lamborghini Countach in order to do a review and test drive.  This 1977 Lamborghini was the first production model of the Countach.  It had a V12 engine with six carburetors, and it produced 376 horsepower.

Unlike modern Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, Mercedes, and BMWs, the reviewer and other owners of these early Lamborghinis claim that this V12 engine and its transmission were very rugged, reliable, and trouble-free, even to this day more than forty years later.

But don’t think that you can go out an buy one.  There were only about 160 of these first ones produced, so the value of the one shown in this video is nearly $2 million.  I am showing this video, because like the two previous videos that I showed of carburetored V12 Jaguars, you will not ever see cars like this again.
