Countach 5000 QV - Alpine adventure



Octane magazine recently borrowed Evo's Harry Metcalfe's Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole and drove it 1100 miles down to Sant'Agata, to meet legendary Lambo test driver Valentino Balboni. Which, obviously, is an awesome thing to do. Smiles from the locals, an epic fuel bill, the occasional mechanical hiccup - but thankfully nothing serious - and miles upon miles of unforgettable V12-powered glory. This is the kind of adventure supercars are built for.

You can read the story (accompanied by loads of photos) here.
