The list is getting bigger and bigger each day but another surprise . I dont see a Countach on any ones list yet except mine... I had expected it in GTOs list. Ok its impractical but it was mean and fast....

What say?

Cheers

Well Dippy, the Countach in its days, rivalled a certain 512i Berlinetta Boxer. That caused me to loathe it. I hated it to such an extent that I started hating Lamborghini as a brand. There were too many Ferraris and Porsches for me to love. And yes, BMW had their stunningly beautiful M1 too.
However, my perception of Lamborghini has definitely changed lately. All thanks to the wonderful Diablo.

HEy addy

The 512 BBi was one of the best Ferraris produced awesome power and mind blowingly fast and of course thats the car that lead to the mighty Testarossa. But really cant take away anything from Lambo too . At that time when the Countach came out its design was different from other cars of it time. It was very crude very difficult to drive but I like for the fact that it too was outrageously fast.

So Addy did the perception about the Diablo change when you saw it in the flesh aka Swapna lok parking lot

Dippy,

The Countach still does figure in my list, but in the top 10. Alas, Revvmaster gave us only 5 to choose from and not 10.
