Photo of the Week #29 – 1988 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV

Introduced as a prototype in 1971, the Countach was designed by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini with angular wedge-shaped styling and scissor doors. Aluminum bodywork is mounted over a tubular steel spaceframe, and production versions feature NACA ducts aft of the doors along with prominent air intakes above the rear quarters. The 5000 QV variant utilizes Kevlar front and rear deck lids, and straked brake vents are integrated into the rocker panels of US-market cars. Two-piece 15” OZ wheels (yes, you read that right…15-inch) wear Pirelli tires measuring 225/50 up-front and 345/35 out-back. US-market rear lighting is retained, though both the front and rear of the car are absent of rubber safety bumpers.
