    How the Lamborghini Countach Got That Name

    Nearly all Lamborghinis have names that relate to bulls and bullfighting, but not the Countach, and this is the story behind the famous name.

    Great story. I am a big fan of Lambos and the late models are very solid and reliable.

        I remember that story. The way it was described to me long time ago was that at the unveiling a German reporter cried out Countach. Someone asked what it meant and he said basically Holy Sh*t ! ; )

          This was easily my favorite car in the 80's when I was young and uninformed.

              I actually preferred the miura s to the lamborghini countach and as the years went on the countach got horrible aero tacked on ****.

              needless to say Once ferrari went rear mid engine I favored their interpretation.
