Lamborghini Countach — Supercars

by Francesco Patti

The Lamborghini Countach: a remarkable supercar, a car of extreme and timeless appeal is the protagonist of this new monograph. The book opens with the long period of gestation in which Marcello Gandini – then head of design at Carrozzeria Bertone – defined the futuristic lines of a car that, to many at first sight seemed to have come from another planet thanks to the taut, sharply creased lines of its bodywork and its muscular mechanical specification, with the V12 engine located behind the driver’s shoulders. When it progressed from a concept to a production model (LP 400), the Countach successfully maintained its charisma, becoming one of the most enduring supercars of all.

The thorough text draws on the direct testimony of many of the figures who contributed to the creation of the Countach: from Marcello Gandini to Giampaolo Dallara and through to the invaluable insights provided by the daughter of Paolo Stanzani.

The book covers all the principal versions of the Countach: from the first LP 500 to the LP 400, from the 48-valve to the monstrous 5000 QW through to the 25 Anniversario that in 1990 represented the final chapter in the history of this unforgettable car.


La Lamborghini Countach: una supercar straordinaria, una vettura estrema dal fascino senza tempo è la protagonista di questa nuova monografia. Il volume si apre con il lungo percorso che condusse Marcello Gandini – all’epoca capo del design della Carrozzeria Bertone – a definire le avveniristiche linee di un’automobile che, al suo primo apparire, a molti sembrò un oggetto venuto da un altro pianeta per le linee tese ed affilate della carrozzeria ma anche per la poderosa meccanica: il 12 cilindri a V collocato alle spalle dell’abitacolo. Quando dal concept si passò al modello di produzione (LP 400), la Countach seppe mantenere intatto il proprio carisma divenendo una delle supercars più longeve di sempre.

Il rigoroso testo a firma di Francesco Patti si avvale anche della testimonianza di molti personaggi che contribuirono alla creazione della Countach: da Marcello Gandini a Giampaolo Dallara sino al prezioso contributo della figlia di Paolo Stanzani.

All’interno di questo volume trovano spazio tutte le principali evoluzioni della Countach: dalla prima LP 500 alla LP 400, dalla 48 valvole alla mostruosa 5000 QW sino alla 25 Anniversario che nel 1990 costituì l’ultimo capitolo nella storia di questa indimenticabile automobile.
