Thinking of the Countach, does anyone have a copy of the Gillette commercial with the silver Countach? I wish someone, anyone, would put a copy on Youtube. Surely that would score a heap of hits.

100% that's the car!

And yes I still would have bought her, even if I spent $100k on the car, in the end it would have been concours!

Thanks again for the update!

No problem Condorman.
Admittedly, Countach prices have risen rapidly over the past 4 years and perhaps it was a missed opportunity but believe in the dream and surely, another chance will come by again.

Every car loving guy in the world would love a Countach even though every one of us know that theyre not a dream car to drive or maintain.

The second time I drove one (5000s) , I was blown away by how nice they are to drive on the road. The first time was in the same car, but it was in a shitty state at the time.

QV  are great to drive at speed, but the rear view blocked by the bonnet buldge made me worry about what was around me.

I liked the delivery mileage Anniversary I drove briefly too. But it broke dwon when the battery cable snapped off the chassis... not bad for a 40 miles car... 40 miles! Not 40k miles!

I love my QV..but you need to be in the adhrenalin mood to drive it like it should be driven if you know what i mean!

Always get back home with a big smile on my face......unless i am driving around the burbs and need to u turn it, reverse it, hand brake start  or park it.

It is one angry car that is hell bent on killing you if you don't know what you are doing.

Hold on for the ride  and hold in that big grin :D
Nothing like Rear 345's losing traction at a 120kph gear change to brown your undies

All I can say is WOW...nothing like I have ever driven before....and i have driven a few!

Yes injected and slightly modified to make it go harder...actually much harder than the Testarossa.

2 bulges on the engine cover.  still very poor rear visibility

Actually I prefer the Fuel Injection.

Less Smelly.
Starts first time.
Less chance of catching fire with carbies in the middle of the V with all those exposed electricals.

These engine bays are are disaster...leaking carbies, vapour etc.  wiring which isn't really heat resistant make them a death trap.
