exotic cars


1982 (approximately) Lamborghini Countach LP500 S at Fuelfed Coffee and Classics in Winnetka.

This Countach has the 375 horsepower (276 kW) 4.8 liter V12 engine.  It was capable of a top speed of 182 miles per hour (293 km/hr).  

The Countach may very well be the peak of 1970s and 80s wedge shaped car design.  No other wedge car that I’ve seen is this dramatic in person.  Like the Lamborghini Miura before it, it was designed by the very talented Marcello Gandini from Bertone.
