Bertone Lamborghini Countach

From Bertone press: At the 1973 Geneva Auto Show, the production version of the Lamborghini Countach was presented as the LP 400 (LP: “Longitude Positioned” engine). The engine’s size was reduced to that of other Lamborghinis, with 3929 cc, 350 hp at 7500 rpm. The tubular space frame structure and the peculiar location of the gearbox in front of the engine, had no noticeable changes compared to the prototype of 1971, but some interventions were made for the vehicle’s engine cooling needs. Although air intake boxes on the sides behind the windows and NACA ducts within the doors were added to aid engine cooling, the body has still a bold and provocative style. The LP 400 is built on a wheelbase of 2450 mm, is 4140 mm long, 1890 mm wide, 1070 mm high, and weighs 1065 kg. The Countach reached a top speed of 315 km/h and after a long production run, ceased in 1987.
