12. Lamborghini Countach LP 400
The Countach is the definitive ’80s supercar icon and everybody’s bedroom wall poster. This car was born in the ’70s. Lamborghini introduced it in 1974 and constantly upgraded the Countach. This helped Lamborghini survive the hardship of the recession and establish itself as the supercar maker of the decade. This car is on the list of perfect rides for epic road trips across America because it was featured in the legendary Cannonball Rally movie where it raced from coast to coast.
In 1977, they presented the LP 400 S version. It had a modern-looking body kit with an improved 4.0-liter V12 engine delivering 390 HP. The mid-engine layout provided the perfect balance. And with almost 400 HP going to the rear wheels, the Countach LP 400 S was fast. The 0 to 60 mph time took 5.9 seconds, which made it the top supercar of the period.
