Default Pics : Replica Countachs rotting in Mumbai. EDIT: One more - Running!

Well i guess the Countach topic is missing from the forum. Checked out the car few days back. The car is in quite a sad condition. Rear tyre was flat. Doors were jammed. Body work was free of dent. The car looks like an original Countach if viewed from dead front/rear. But its the length that gives away. Its too short for a Countach. The rear wheel arches also are different. Car sports a Corvette V8. But it was missing from the boot. The rear tyre was a massive 345 size one. Interiors were in a sad condition and very cramped. Speedo was calibrated to a top speed to 80 mph.

Here are some of the pics :

The rear part of the car seems to be very very small as compared to the original...I mean it looks like a Countach Junior.
Even the alloys..have very very small circular holes...the original had real big ones!!

Hey V12,

that picture in the second set from the back with the tree in it looks pretty mean man... good use of ur new cam!
These pics have a damn eerie feel, like they are from one of those "future world battlefield" type movies!

Guys checked out the same at the garage on this Sunday.Man tried to open the door but it just was too heavy and when finally could open it it just dropped off.Also remember the first time when i was this machine at the NSE complex Automech Tech way back.It looked great that time.Neways dunno how much its gonna cost if ever i would have had money to buy the body shel and then try fitting an good powerful engine in it...Just kidding.
