The World's Best Lamborghini Countach

The Lamborghini Countach was a mid-engine sports car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1974 to 1990. The design of the Countach popularized, but did not pioneer, the wedge-shaped, steep look popular in many luxury cars for high performance. The "cab forward" design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward to accommodate a larger engine, was also popularized by the Countach. The rear wheels were powered by a V12 Lamborghini traditional longitudinally mounted mid-engine configuration. For better weight distribution, the engine is marked as "new", the output shaft is at the front and the gearbox is in front of the drive shaft through the engine sump runner rear differential . Although originally planned as a 5-liter engine, production cars first used the Lamborghini Miura engine of four liters. Later advances increased the displacement of 5 liters and then (in the model Quattrovalvole) 5.2 L with four valves per cylinder. Lamborghini Countach All are equipped with six Weber carburetors until the arrival of 5000QV model, when the car became available in the United States, and the fuel injection Bosch K-Jetronic. European models, however, continued to use the carburetors until the arrival of the Lamborghini Diablo, which replaced the legendary Countach.
