Pic Of The Week: Countach!


OK, so this is the definition of a POTW easy win. But when our colleagues at Classic & Sports Car kindly gave us permission to use some Lambo shots commissioned by them and photographed by Malcolm Griffiths it was clear we had some pretty special pics on our hands.

David Vivian's wonderfully evocative PH Heroes piece on the car many of us had on our bedroom walls a few years back celebrated some of the stories that make the Countach such a legend. But it's always the car's visual impact that leaves one reeling, Griffiths' pics absolutely the stuff of dreams. Choosing one from the selection was difficult but this one, to us, sums up the 'I want to be there, doing THAT!' spirit best of all. So. Reprise that peeling, sun bleached poster of old in stylish digital form on the electronic device of your choosing, courtesy of Pic Of The Week.

    Accidentally Ph rated as 5...oops, X2 of course!

    For me, the quintessential Countach should be white, but red is a close 2nd.

    Fab picture!
