Time For Coffee? Countach!

Nice little vid about one man's love for his Countach and why it means no more Big Macs!



Time For Tea?’s occasional morning counterpart, Time For Coffee? returns with a pleasing little eulogy to the Lamborghini Countach, courtesy of Petrolicious.com, a new site involving Depth Of Speed’s Josh Clason. We’ve enjoyed Josh’s work before, Time For Tea? featuring his beautifully shot retro GT-R vid a little while back. Petrolicious would seem to be taking a similar path of thoughtful, indulgent little videos of beautiful cars. Which is something we can probably all get behind – all power to ’em!

Shock and awe under the Californian sun
Shock and awe under the Californian sun
This one is a pretty straightforward tale of one man’s love for his Countach. No tyre smoke, no sideways action, no redline-troubling VMAX runs, just someone talking about why he loves his Lambo, despite (perhaps because of) all its practical difficulties. And, in a pattern repeated by all the Lamborghini owners we met on our day in an Aventador, he too started his love affair at a young age with a poster on the wall and seems commendably awestruck that life has afforded him the opportunity to own the real thing a few years down the line. Hope for us all yet, perhaps.

So here you go. And doesn’t a white Lambo look stunning under Californian sun…

Even after watching fifth gear I'd still have one of these over an F40.

I had several Countaches/s/'s/i (Plural) and the cheeky tennis girl posters on my bedroom wall as a kid.

I blame the CannonBall Run films biggrin

Cannonball Run 2 opening sequence
This four minutes of film was where my whole petrolhead fascination began. A red Countach found a home on my wall.

For me, still the definitive supercar. Ridiculous but a car that I doubt you'd ever frown walking into your garage and seeing one parked there.

Totally agree. I've the audio for the opening sequence on my ipod and listen to it more often than I'd care to admit. I just adore the noise of that V12. Best bit of car porn in any film ever.

I never did but was mildly blown away when they first launched it but my tongue hung out when they added all the scoops and aggression. For me, it was the CAR articles on the Countach which cemented it's invincibility as a desirable icon.

Fantastic films, and loved the black countach with the front spoiler. Although my favourite car for some reason was always this:

Thanks for the link!

Sadly, I will never own one as I just don't see the point in owning something I can't drive. Being 6' 3" I really don't fit that well!
