LP400 Countach S
1978 / 1982
The tyres quickly admitted their limitations and proved to be undersized for the power of the V12. On the LP400 S, low-profile Pirelli P7 tyres greatly improved the Countach’s handling. The adoption of these tyres led to numerous changes to the geometry of the suspension, while the brake discs were significantly enlarged. They also led to the addition of some really crude fender flares designed by Walter Wolf. Despite its advanced age, the Countach remains one of the most powerful cars in the world. Its low weight combined with its powerful mid-mounted V12 gave it first-rate performance and devilishly efficient roadholding. Agile, well-balanced and almost easy to control at medium speeds, the Lamborghini Countach is one of the few supercars that can also be used on the road. It should be noted that in order to comply with American anti-pollution standards (the brand’s main customer), power has been reduced on this 2nd evolution.
