Enough already about the impracticality… what is it like to DRIVE?!?!
I’m not in love with cars. I’m not in love with driving.
I’m in love with driving cars that I love.
That’s what fuels my dreams. The Countach is a car I would love to drive one day. The practical nature of that is not part of the equation.

This guy is right on the money. So what if it’s wildly impractical and cramped and, according to some, like a wrestling match to drive? It’s absolutely beautiful. Personally I have an affliction for the LP400, but this one is so perfectly outrageous.

This was shot entirely in 1080p and plays in 1080p. You may want to make sure the HD button on the player is enabled. Vimeo might be streaming you a lower quality version if the bandwidth isn’t there.

Great video, nice capture of the V12 sound. Looks like a Ferrari 250 Lusso in the back ground, would love to hear something about that in the future
