A true successor to the Countach
From purchase, the car was shipped directly back to the factory in Italy for a full service and to be checked over.
The previous owner experienced problems with the throttle linkage, and the factory check revealed that the rear view camera and rear parking sensors were not working.
It failed a recent MOT test due to emissions, but this was expected as the catalytic converter is not fitted.
Have only driven the car 8 miles since acquiring it (to and from the MOT testing station) so these comments will be quite short.
Externally the car seems bigger than my previous Lambo, a Countach, but inside it feels a lot snugger.
Headroom is not great if you are over 6 feet tall, and the racing seats (an optional extra) will not forgive those extra chocolate eclairs you may have eaten.
The engine noise is absolutely glorious, though it does seem a bit quieter than the Countach, which was fitted with a sport exhaust system. This opinion may change however, once I get the car on a decent road and get it above 4000 rpm.
The looks are not to everyone's taste, but love it or loathe it, it does turn heads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
