Lamborghini is an established company and have been producing tractors, cars and jeeps for numerous decades now. Popular Lamborghini cars include the Miura, the Countach, the Diablo, the Jalpa, the LM002, the Murcielago and the Gallardo.

In my personal opinion, the Diablo was the supreme Lamborghini, though the Murcielago is more or less flawless in every aspect. I have sat in a 1995 Diablo and a 2002 Murcielago, and it was something about the former that had me more charged up than the latter. All Lamborghinis showcase daring and vulgar Italian styling, and usually appear pretty darn beautiful.

If I had a choice, I'd probably buy a Diablo SV in Midnight Purple or black, or a Black Murcielago Roadster with black wheels.

Not a bad choice! But somehow, the Miura remains the most achingly beautiful car of all time. I wish I had one.

The Countach is an older-generation Lamborghini, made very popular by it's radical looks. I'm not too sure about Lambos in India, but apparently there's a black Countach in Delhi, if I'm not mistaken. Diablos, I hope there are, and probably somebody somewhere does own one, yet to be officially spotted by us, recently.

Beautiful? Without a doubt, it's gorgeous. Would I own one over a Diablo? Probably, because of it's name. Do I love it more than the Devil? No

I believe the Espada was the most serious Lambo ever built.It was a proper GT and could carry 4 in absolute comfort and it never broke down (Sir Paul Mc Cartney will vouch for it).These days its a supercar bargain

Hmmm... not many Countach people here, eh? I guess too many people saw James May's rather dark assesment of it in TG.

The Countach was a lost oppurtunity. When it was unveiled in 1971, production was still at least 4 years away, and because the car was so mind blowingly modern and desirable it all but destroyed demand for the Miura, which deserved a few more succesful production years, and had just started picking up in sales.

This bogged the company down heavily, and development of the Countach became stunted, and old man Ferrucio sold the company in 1974.

Sad that although Lamborghini have always had cars with great potential, they have been bogged down by bad luck, poor timing, and internal disputes.

I adore the Countach, and have had the opportunity to view several up close, alongwith the revving of certain select ones. Great car, and it'll always remain one of my favourites.
