Countach was bold and far ahead of its time in styling.

You Ferrari boys will never give up eh?

Ha Ha, in 1988 when I was a kid, I ws given a choice between these exact three cars, in 1:18 R/C form. Which one did I choose? The scarlet one. 20 years later on this poll, my vote has gone to the silver one.

the countach was a design revolution for lambo which it carries even today , though as a car it was impossible to get into as james may displayed in TG , the 959 was the most technologically advanced porsche of its time but it wasn't good looking , that leaves the f40 probably the greatest ferrari & most successsful (1000 were made )

the countach set a benchmark which Lamborghini follows till date. as skyline gtr r34 puts it 'it was a design revolution for lambo'. and in 07 lambo evolved once again in the form of lp 640. kudos to countach, love that car.

Exactly why i chose the Countach inspite of knowing that other two are faster better practical and whatever else. The Countach should probably be in the top 10 pin ups of all time.

Designed with Group B rallying in mind. Employing its unique All wheel drive system a first for a supercar of its league. Having Sequential Twin Turbochargers. The 959 deserves more votes than what it has got so far. Moreover, its a Porsche nothing less on the emotional content to Ferrari or the Bull.

I had seen one at a plant construction site, a place where the F40 or the countach can't even dream of going. But the 959 would happily accompany them on the track as well.

959 is the reason that we still have the 911.

When I was a kid, I saw a movie which had a Ferrari F40 in it. I loved it. I love older Ferrari models. I also saw a F40 in real but it was damaged as someone managed to crash it. :(

The 959 is a great rally car and I love rallying so it is cool. I also own a German Car so Porsche would always be close to my heart. Porsche is one of my favorite brands.

The Countach is a very different car. Not everyone can understand how that car drives. Once you know how to drive it, you will realize it is pretty good.

The F40 nearly has 1 coat of paint to save on weight.

The 959 does not look like an exotic.

All these cars had some or the other drawbacks. I still love all of them. Anyone have a 959 in India ?

I would love to see all of them one day together.

The Countach looks like a Dog and the F40 its meal... My vote & heart is always with the 959...
Ok... I hope not to get banned for my comments... If any one's offended, Mods please go ahead & delete it...
