Lamborghini Countach Turbo

748bhp. 0-60mph in 3.7s. 207mph. In a Countach...

Lamborghini's archetypal wedge was always a vision of excess, but the Turbo model took the formula to extremes. The 4.8-litre V12 was boosted by a brace of turbos, adjustable via a switchable boost control knob that offered between 0.7-1.5 bar.
Only two Countach Turbos actually left Sant'Agata; the first, a prototype, is MIA, so the Swiss-registered example you see here is the only official model in existence. And there's a woman in red PVC mucking about with it. Interesting.
