1977 Lamborghini Countach LP 400 S
Although the Countach is the definitive 80’s supercar icon on everybody’s bedroom wall posters, it was born in the 70’s. They introduced it in 1974 and constantly upgraded it. The Countach helped Lamborghini survive the hardship of the recession by establishing itself as the supercar of the decade.
In 1977, Lamborghini introduced the LP 400 S version. It had a modernized body kit with an updated 4.0-liter V12 engine with 390 HP. The mid-engine layout provided balance for the vehicle. With almost 400 HP going to its rear wheels, the Countach LP 400 S was quite fast. The 0 to 60 mph acceleration time took 5.9 seconds, making it the top supercar of the period.
