Removing the headlights make it look like a kitcar. But other than that I like it.

Yeah, thatís a write off. I saw they were pulling the Midnight stickers off it before it was even to the pits. Weird.

Aside from the oversized wheel, the mods are not atrocious.

I do not like the lights or front treatment. I like the sideskirts, the SV style decklid and the rear trunk mount wing lip. He has also done ALOT of work to the motor. I know its all motec, even using the motec display for the interior gauges. He drives the shit out of the car, and I bet he will fix and redo everything.

Sad to see any Countach wounded in action.

Hopefully the owner can make the necessary repairs.

I am guessing $100-140k in parts alone.... if the fame isnít tweaked too badly.

It is fixable but gonna be expensive. The wheels are way too big , they look like 20' and 21' , otherwise the car looks ok.

I have seen this car IRL. Unfortunate, for sure; but I am almost totally positive that the owner will fix everything and have it back on track. Hopefully he won't go too overboard on the mods.

Like the wheel style but agree they look too big. Aside from wheel size, kit car head lights, and badges in front of the door I like it.

i like the SV bonnet and rear wing lip
i like the instrument panel a lot

i do not like at all the wheels and side skirts....if he had put 16" or 17" BBS gold wheels with gold centers would have been killers
and no skirts for me ...with them you lose the appealing of the big flares on the back in contrast with the round countach rokers

That car belongs to the owner of Veloce in Japan who sells lambo and Italian parts... sad to see that car get damaged like that.

I think if you are going to race something on a track, you have to be prepared for that kind of result. SUCKS, but race cars crash.

Rough thoughts on what it would cost to get it road-worthy again? I canít imagine what that would run.

I hope every Countach stays on the road. This one is a shitbomb of awful mods. It won't be cheap.
