Cozy up to the 25th Anniversary Lamborghini Countach

In 1974, Lamborghini decided it wanted to transcend the world of exotic sports cars and start building futuristic space ships for alien rockstars. That naturally led to the creation of the Lamborghini Countach. It’s a vehicle that packs a V12 and turns the idea of the shape of a door stop into something beautiful in front of your eyes.
Sure, we had it rough at times here in the States when fools in the federal department of ruining cars made Lamborghini tack on disgusting bumpers. But the car still managed to overcome those protuberances and provided many a generation of future car lovers with glorious wall candy.
We could debate which Countach is the best, because over the course of its 16-year lifespan the car certainly took on different styling directions. For many, the original LP400 is the greatest. Others prefer the 5000 Quattrovalvole. There are many fans of the ultra Radwood 80’s glory found in the 25th Anniversary edition cars. Personally, I’d slap babies in the face to take home a Walter Wolf Countach.
Before you sound off on which one you owned in poster form, take a look at the video above. The folks at /DRIVE managed to snag some beautiful footage of a 25th Anniversary Countach. The sounds it produces are otherworldly. And yes, I know it would probably be terrible to actually drive one… but it’s the best kind of terrible, and I’d love every second of the hot, sweaty, zero visibility-providing, amazing time.
Also, is H8 UFO not the perfect license plate for this thing?

    Ah, 1988. This landed in collector’s driveways around the time Enzo Ferrari passed away. What a year.

    H8 UFO.
    Does that mean that this car belongs to Michael Schenker?
