It was the poster car of a generation: the Lamborghini Countach 5000S. Updated for the 1980s (a decade it would come to define) the 5000S took the early Countach's clean wedge shape and added outrageous fender flares, bulging ducts, a massive rear wing and the widest tires ever fitted to a production car to create an instant legend. There was more to the 5000S than just looks, however: under the hood lay a 4.8-liter V12 fed by six Weber sidedraft carburetors, good for over 350 horsepower and a top speed north of 180 miles per hour.
New from Kyosho is this exquisitely detailed 1:18-scale diecast metal replica of the Lamborghini Countach 5000S, a car for which the word "iconic" doesn't go far enough. It features a fully opening body that reveals richly rendered interior and engine compartments, as well as fine touches from a realistic spare tire to beautiful rear-deck badging.
