When artist and designer Benedict Radcliffe was a child he would wander around the paddocks of racetracks and clubs, finding himself increasingly fascinated with Lamborghini.  It is a fascination that continues to this day.

It is the reason Radcliffe decided to make the Lamborghini Countach his second full-scale wireframe project.  "With the Lamborghini I made it because I just knew the wireframe technique would suit it and it is the most iconic supercar of all time," Radcliffe told

"I had to make it to get it out of my system."

Dubbed the "Koenig Countach," the artist used welded 10mm steel rods to form the vehicle.  Once completed, the intricate piece was painted in flourescent orange.  Radcliffe says the color is equally as "uncompromising" as the car itself.

Koenig Countach was completed in 2008, and is currently on display at the Classic Car Club on London's famed old Street.  The installation is also available for purchase.

The mid-engined Lamborghini Countach was assembled from 1974 to 1990 with 4.0-, 5.0-, and 5.2-liter V12 engines.  Nearly 2,050 units were produced over the car's 16 years in production.
