General Comments:

This is my first supercar. It is great fun to drive, but has poor visibility and you are very low to the ground. it has been a dream of mine to own one for about 7 years, and due to recent lottery winnings I finally realised that dream. Buy one if you can!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Whatever the reliability etc. you have to see the Countach for what it really is; a supercar from another era. This car is what became the automotive symbol of the 80s decade of greed, you have to love it for what it is.

Today is October 14. 05 and I just bought a 1990 Anniversary Countach in Candy Apple Red. 2400 miles and incredible condition. When I drove it I was initially afraid of the car having heard some negative things about it. However I fell in love with the cars raw power and stunning beauty. I should have it in about two days.
