No other car symbolizes the 1970s quite like the Lamborghini Countach. Styled by Marcello Gandini of Bertone, the Countach ushered in the "wedge" era of exotic car design, but there was more to Lamborghini's scissor-door supercar than just futuristic looks. Under the hood of the first-generation LP400 was a 3.9 liter, longitudinally mounted V12 kicking out 370 horsepower, making the early Countach among the fastest cars of its era. The early, slab-sided Countach LP400 has recently emerged as one of the most coveted of all "youngtimer" collector cars, and similarly, AUTOart's brilliant 1:18-scale diecast replica of this definitive Lamborghini is among the most desirable scale-model exotic cars on the market. Its fully opening diecast metal body reveals a beautifully detailed cockpit with flocked carpeting, as well as a highly accurate engine compartment topped by realistic Weber carburetors. For collectors of scale-model Lamborghinis, AUTOart's Countach LP400 is an essential addition.
