Pic Of The Week: Lamborghini Countach

Click to preview
Click to preview
A Lamborghini and an empty stretch of Alpine road. This is surely enough to get any fan of driving, cars or - we suppose - the Alps all wobbly at the knees.

And so it is with pleaure (and wobbly knees) that we bring you today's POTW, an image that we hope should ease the prospect of another weekend spent wading through the slush as you attempt to find a scarf for Aunty Mildred.

The Countach might not be the most subtle of Lamborghinis - especially with the ludicrous aerodynamic addenda that sprouts from this late-model Countach Anniversary - but it is a pretty wonderful car. And a genuinely spectacular shot, we reckon.

You can find out more about this car (and Countachs in general) in this month's Classic & Sports Car (from whom we have purloined today's POTW). All we can say is forget 'wish you were here?' We wish we were there. Right now...

    Oddly though I think the tracking car is an E46 M3 with the 19" wheel option. I'm probably way out, but it crossed my mind whilst looking at the picture throughout talking to a dull colleague on the phone earlier.
    My C&SC sources tell me it's a Range Rover Sport Supercharged... smile
    I win!

    Great work PH...that is a cracking shot of one of my all time favourite cars. I too had the Athena shot (didn't everyone?) it was next to my Kathy Lloyd yum and Clint 'Man with no Name' Eastwood shoot posters for quite some time, probably longer than they should of! biggrin

    I made a statement to lots of folks that I would own two car's one day, I'm really lucky that I have one the other has to be a Lamborghini - I need one now though!

    Can we have a black LP670-4 somewhere incredible next week please!
