    I'd love to see a sweet ass takeoff like that, I only know of 3 videos on whole of Youtube that have a spinning take off. 60 minute segment about the Countach, Jay Lenos review of the Countach... so maybe 2 I forgot if there is a 3rd haha. The flaming Countach is a kit that caught fire at a gas station.

    Lamborghini Countach 2018 Retro Concept

    Thanks guys! Well, I copyright the shape minus badges of course. But even doing that is useless really and here is why. 1st. It is 95% different than an original Countach. 2nd. Even if it was identical to a Countach, as long as I sell it under a different brand name and not mention Lamborghini or Countach, I cannot be sued. Well I can be but they will lose. MR Shelby lost a lawsuit against Factory 5, a company that made and sold reproduction Shelby Cobras because they never mentioned the original car's name or model. It was something to do with customers having the right to repair their products even if it means recreating the shapes and parts that make up the car. You recreate a whole car, power to you, Lamborghini can't sue you for that. That is the same reason why you can buy aftermarket bumpers not labeled "OEM/Genuine". Those companies do not have permission from Lamborghini to produce the parts half the time. Consumer laws permit them to as long as they say "aftermarket" or do not claim they are genuine. 3rd. If they are to sue because it resembled a Countach, well the design is over 10 years old so no one has the exclusive right to it anymore. 4th. The Iranian carbon copy Murcielago SV can serve as a good example. Identical in a LOT of ways, un-badges but does have "Murcielago" on the door sills. (runs a Hyundai engine and drivetrain though) No lawsuits filed. These are my arguments for building and selling this car, of course I will continue researching it, Lamborghini is welcome to make me an offer for the design. I actually emailed Lamborghini asking them if they would like to buy a design (did not show it to them, only asked) and if they have an issue with me building a car resembling the Countach but will be un-badged. They said no to the design as they have agencies for that, and they ignored my second question. We are building a monster chassis soon for this car, I am more keen on seeing the body in real life first though haha.
  5. Hi All, I'd like to share my 2018 Concept I did of the legendary Countach. It has been written about by many online automotive websites the last 7 days. Sites from the States, France, Turkey, Japan, Russia, China, Singapore, Belgium, Hungry and Australia. Hope you like it Side note, anyone willing to invest let me know as there are current plans to build this baby! I have filed for copyright on the design too. Allan Special - Actually not true, I will be doing a side skirted version for side skirt lovers... https://www.facebook.com/JnVisuals/ook.com/JnVisuals/.com/JnVisuals/

    What in the actual fcuk?

    I'd love to drive a Countach, I have driven the 91 diablo , 96 Diablo SV , 96 Diablo Roadster, 2016 Aventador SV Roadster. The 91 Diablo apparently drives close to a Countach, bit better, and that was hard Diablo SV is my absolute favorite! Drove it for hours, it is just right! Aventador SV, hmm... Amazing car, but I can't live with paddleshifters, i'll need a stick V12 to change things up. As for the Countach in Question, As previously mentioned, is is ALL a replica fiber body with many many many wrong parts. the 50% that is original is the Engine and gearbox and a few bits here and there. I'd rather save the money and buy the real deal.

    New 6.0 youtube review

    Saw this earlier, PRetty funny and a sexy color! I do love the 6.0! But I think I will want a Diablo SV and a 6.0 if I have the money. The 6.0 cockpit sounded like it is very insulated from the engine. When I was driving Andecorps Diablo SV, Albeit he has a Quicksilver exhaust system, I was able to hear it in all it's glory even when Idle. That 6.0 sounded a little more muffled even in the exterior shots. Andecorp, perhaps you can enlighten me on this? is a stock exhaust a lot quieter on the Diablo vs your QS?

    What in God's name?

    I remember those pictures! Ew indeed. If I own it, I would restore it, given it cost him near nothing to purchase in the first place.

    Awesome! Are you in contact with him by any chance? I would LOVE to check out if it is indeed my dads ex CT. Thing is, JVD would most likely know about the early history of the car, however, i'm sure that history is shared with the new owner. It would be easy to identify it, missing bull at the back, small indicator at the front, no reflector at the rear/sides unless they were forced on to get it registered in the US. and unless added on/repaired by either my dad or newer owners, missing reflector on the left taillight as per last attached image. Cheers!

    Official Shitty Lamborghini Kit Car and Replica Thread

    The effort put into these shit replicas baffles me. By shit I don't mean the Burlap interior Murcielago, that one is crap but at least was based on molds of a real Lambo. I am talking bout the "Aventadorshit".. hand crafted bodywork to match the donor car, completely crapping on the Lamborghini Design. Those guys are talented but have no taste, what they should be doing is building a custom car, custom design and not try to "replicate" anything.

    Well I narrowed down that only 3 Black on Black Countachs were made in 1982-1983. One of them that was made early 83 has a Vin number of DLA12560. If you google "DLA12560" you will see a person of the name James V. Diment from New York that was writing about his "DLA12560" and how he owned it from new since 83 and wanted to sell it around that time. He even writes of a guy with a pristine Black on Black Countach in New York that was going over to look at his Countach, perhaps he bought it of him? That's the most info I can get on DLA12560. Got any more info on that owner? IT does, My uncles used to escort him with AK 47s at times, anyone could have car jacked him during a full fledged war. One of the reasons he sold it!

    Thanks man, haha My thoughts exactly!! He was so bad ass, you should see the other photos Rocking the long wavy hair in the 70s with his Maserati Indy, or the car he hand built, or even the turtle neck and vest and sunnies in the 60s!
