This designation begins with "LP", an abbreviation of the Italian " longitudinale posteriore ," meaning "longitudinal rear. For the prototype and early production models, "LP" was followed by a three digit number designating nominal engine displacement, "" for 3. As in the Miura, the letter "S" short for Sport was added for later high performance variants.

The LP- designation was dropped entirely for the 25th Anniversary Edition, also called the Anniversary. The Countach was styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio. Both of these concept cars featured unconventional methods of entry into the passenger compartment—a hinged windshield for the Stratos Zero and scissor doors for the Carabo—foreshadowing the scissor doors used on the Countach.

At the start of the LP project in , Lamborghini commissioned Gandini and his team at Bertone to develop a body for the then-unnamed prototype. Chief engineer Paolo Stanzani supplied the design team with chassis information so that body design could proceed while the mechanical details of the prototype were finalised. Shortly before the Geneva Auto Show, the finished chassis was shipped to Bertone where the prototype bodywork and interior were installed.

The resulting Countach LP prototype was unveiled at the Geneva Auto show, where its unconventional design drew great public interest and extensive press coverage. The LP prototype had a crisp, wedge-shaped design that, compared to the Miura, was wide and very low but shorter in overall length.

Overall dimensions of the prototype were cm 73 in wide, cm 41 in tall, and cm in long. The nose of the prototype tapered sharply to a thin grille, an uninterrupted slope enabled by headlights in retractable housings that flipped down inside the body when not in use. The prototype's body lacked bumpers, aerodynamic spoilers, side mirrors and any other addition that would have interrupted the lines of Gandini's design.

Trapezoidal shapes appeared throughout the body, including in the windshield, side windows, door openings, hood and engine covers and taillights. Air was supplied to the engine and side-mounted radiators through louvered vents immediately behind the side windows, although road testing quickly demonstrated these vents alone were inadequate to control engine temperatures. The interior of the prototype was equally notable to contemporary audiences as the exterior, as it incorporated new technologies and bold styling decisions.

Gandini initially sketched a dashboard with all-digital readouts for the Countach. This dashboard design was not fully realised in time for the debut, the LP prototype instead used a conventional analog speedometer and tachometer. However, the LP dashboard incorporated other innovations from Gandini's original sketches, including aircraft or spaceship-inspired warning lights placed centrally on the steering column, within the arc of the steering wheel.

One of these warning lights functioned similarly to a modern cruise control system, illuminating when a set speed was exceeded. Another innovation was the inclusion of an on-board diagnostic system long before their standardization and widespread adoption that displayed the status of the car's individual subsystems superimposed on a schematic view of the entire car, located on the dashboard to the driver's left.

Due to the poor rearward visibility inherent in the Countach design, a periscope was integrated into the passenger compartment roof, instead of a conventional rear-view mirror. This periscope system was obtained from Donnelly Mirrors, who had first developed it for an ESV project.

Gandini also used a single-spoke steering wheel and deeply recessed bucket seats, which shared a stylised motif of segmented blocks. The low seating position, prominent transmission tunnel and wide door sills all contributed to the sensation of being inside a race car cockpit.

The scissor doors of the Countach prototype were a prominent design feature carried over to the production Countach as well as many subsequent Lamborghini models. First appearing on Gandini's Alfa Romeo Carabo concept car, they attached to the vehicle structure at the front of the door using horizontal hinges, so that they lifted up and tilted forward when opened. Gandini incorporated this door design as both a styling gesture and to facilitate entry. The car's wide chassis and high and wide doorsills made entry using conventional doors difficult in narrow spaces.

Conversely, care needed to be taken in opening the scissor doors under low ceilings. Due to poor rearward visibility and the wide sills, many Countach drivers park by opening the door, sitting on the sill, and reversing into the parking spot while looking over the back of the car from outside. Lamborghini engineers studied solutions to this problem including an easily removable "kick-out" windscreen or using explosive bolts to remove the doors following an accident, although neither were incorporated into the production Countach.

Following the LP prototype's public debut, the body design was progressively altered during pre-production testing to improve aerodynamic performance, high speed stability, engine cooling and ability to meet mandated safety requirements. This resulted in many differences between the LP prototype and the production LP The most visible change was the addition of several vents to improve engine cooling and air intake. These included NACA ducts spanning the doors and rear wings on each side and protruding air intake boxes, which replaced the louvered vents behind the side windows.

Additional small windows were added behind the side windows, slightly improving rearward visibility. The futuristic dashboard and diagnostic displays seen on the prototype were replaced with a conventionally-styled dashboard using Stewart-Warner analog gauges, while the single-spoke steering wheel was replaced with a three spoke wheel similar to those used on other production Lamborghinis. The styling of the Countach was continually altered as new production models were introduced. Later additions—including flared arches, spoilers, carburetor covers and bumpers—progressively changed the Countach body in order to improve the model's performance, safety and appearance.

Despite these updates, the basic shape of the first Countach prototype revealed in remained virtually unchanged over its year lifespan. The Countach was designed around the existing Lamborghini V12 engine in a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. In contrast to the Miura's transversely-mounted engine, the engine in the Countach was longitudinally-mounted.

The resulting configuration had the output shaft at the front of the engine, immediately connecting through the clutch assembly to the transmission. The transmission itself was a 5-speed manual with Porsche -type synchromesh [8] and was mounted in the middle of the car between the two seats. The driveshaft ran from the transmission through the engine's oil sump to a differential at the rear. This arrangement effectively sandwiched the length of the engine between the mid-mounted transmission and the rear-mounted differential.

This configuration had numerous advantages over the Miura's transverse engine, including an increase in stability from placing more mass near the car's center, a shorter overall wheelbase, a more direct gear-shift linkage for easier and faster shifting, better cooling and easier maintenance access to engine components. Versions of this engine were used in preceding and then currently produced Lamborghini models including the GT , GT , Islero , Espada and Miura.

As used in the Miura, this engine had a 3, cc 3. The 3. Therefore, the engineers decided to increase the engine's displacement to 5-litre, in order to extract more power while avoiding the usability problems of a race-tuned engine. This increase in displacement would require a major redesign of the existing V Lamborghini's plan was to produce the 5-litre engine in time for series production and published specification sheets for the proposed production 5-litre engine at the debut of the prototype.

This made it clear that further revisions to the basic engine design were required to improve durability. The LP prototype was subsequently fitted with a 3. The first production cars used a 3. The stated power output was less than that of the Miura SV, which was blamed on the use of side-draft Weber 45 DCOE carburetors instead of the down-draft carburetors used on the Miura.

European-specification cars continued to use carburetors until the arrival of the succeeding Diablo. Paolo Stanzani and the Lamborghini engineering team developed an all-steel partial space frame chassis for the LP Countach prototype. This prototype chassis was constructed of both a steel sheet and square-section steel tubing, with wall thicknesses between 0.

The front section primarily used stamped and spot-welded sheet steel, with certain areas stiffened by stamped ribs and welded reinforcement panels. Stiffening frames constructed of sheet steel and tubing extended through the center of the car, along both door sills and around the central transmission tunnel. The rear section of the chassis consisted of almost entirely square-section tubing and included diagonal bracing and multiple cross-members for strength.

This prototype chassis was constructed by Marchesi of Modena, which had produced chassis for earlier Lamborghini models. The prototype chassis was stiffer and heavier than the Miura chassis. It weighed kg lb , while the Miura's chassis weighed 75 kg lb.

The additional weight was partially due to the lack of the lightening holes used in the Miura and partially due to the need to construct an extra-durable chassis for pre-production testing. Following testing of the LP prototype during , Stanzani and his team decided to further revise the chassis design. The dimensions and layout were similar, but the steel sheet and square tube construction used in the prototype was entirely disregarded in favor of a full space frame constructed of welded round-section steel tubing.

Compared to the prototype, this design used a much more complex welded assembly of cross-braced tubular frames and was reinforced with sheet metal gussets in a few key areas. Tubes of 30 mm 1. Overall, this new design was stiffer and weighed less, at 90 kg lb. In addition to the performance benefits of this design, engineers recognized that building a technologically advanced and visually complex chassis would align with Lamborghini's marketing strategy and sell better than a conventional design.

However, logistically this method of fabrication was relatively easy to incorporate into the low-volume, manually-skilled production line. Prototype and production Countach bodies were constructed primarily of unstressed aluminum panels. Stanzani had initially considered fabricating body panels from the lightweight alloy Avional , primarily used in aircraft construction, but found it expensive and difficult to obtain.

A more conventional aluminum alloy was used instead. These panels were supported by thin steel frames welded to the main chassis. Lamborghini created three pre-production Countach prototypes prior to the introduction of the LP production model. The first prototype was the LP, which was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show and later used for pre-production testing and development by the factory. This car had many mechanical and styling differences compared to the production LP It was built on a partial spaceframe steel chassis which was heavier and simpler compared to the production version's full tubular spaceframe.

The bright yellow bodywork closely followed Gandini's original design for the car but was modified during testing with additional air inlets to improve engine cooling. The 5. The LP prototype was destroyed in a crash test at the MIRA facility in England to gain European type approval, even though its construction method was utterly unlike production vehicles.

The second Countach prototype chassis number was shown to the public at the Geneva Motor Show painted red and at the Paris Motor Show painted green. The bodywork of this car was much closer to that of the LP production model, and now incorporated the side NACA ducts and air intake boxes tested on the first prototype.

This car showed some styling details from the first prototype that would not carry over into production, including trapezoidal windows and a bumperless nose with silver, recessed grill. This was the first car to be equipped with the tubular full spaceframe chassis used on production models. This car was fitted with the 3. In addition to appearing at motor shows, Lamborghini engineers used the second prototype for road testing and as a reference to create the wooden master pattern for all body panels.

This car currently resides in the Lamborghini factory museum. The third Countach prototype chassis number was shown at the Geneva Motor Show and was the first to be constructed entirely in the Lamborghini factory, except for the chassis built by Marchesi. It is sometimes called the first pre-production or first production LP Countach. This car was painted bright yellow and had the finalized production LP body style, which was 13 centimetres 5. The trapezoidal side windows seen in the first prototypes were replaced with a three-panel design, which was easier to manufacture.

The wheel arch shape was slightly changed to prevent the rear tyres from rubbing when the suspension was compressed. To improve long-term durability, the thickness of the body sheet metal was increased from 1. The interior was changed to final production form, losing Gandini's electronic diagnostic displays from the first prototype and using instead conventional gauges manufactured by Stewart-Warner. The Countach entered production as the LP with a 3, cc 3. Externally, little had altered from the final form of the prototype except at the rear, where conventional lights replaced the futuristic light clusters of the prototype.

The styling had become rather more aggressive than Gandini's original conception, with the required large air scoops and vents to keep the car from overheating, but the overall shape was still very sleek. The initial LP was fitted with quite narrow tires of the time, but their narrowness and the slick styling meant that this version had the lowest drag coefficient of any Countach model.

The emblems at the rear simply read "Lamborghini" and "Countach", with no engine displacement or valve arrangement markings as is found on later variants. By the end of , the company had produced Countach LPs. In , a new LP S model was introduced. Most owners ordered the car with the wing despite this disadvantage. The LP S' handling was improved by the wider tyres, which made the car more stable while cornering.

The standard emblems "Lamborghini" and "Countach" were kept at the rear, but an angular "S" emblem was added after the "Countach" on the right side. The bodywork was unaltered, however, the interior was given an update. This variant is sometimes called the S in some markets, which may cause confusion with the later QV. In , the engine design evolved again, as it was bored and stroked to 5, cc 5.

The carburetors were moved from the sides to the top of the engine for better cooling—unfortunately this created a hump on the engine cover, reducing the already poor rear visibility to almost zero. Some body panels were also replaced by Kevlar. In later versions of the engine, the carburetors were replaced with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system. The Fuel injected engine was rated at kW PS; hp. Named to honour the company's twenty-fifth anniversary in , the 25th Anniversary Countach, although mechanically very similar to the QV, sported considerable restyling done by Horacio Pagani.

Notably, enlargement and extension of the rear 'air-box' intake-ducts was among other refinements undertaken extending them to a more gradual incline further in-keeping with aerodynamic-streamlining , while the secondary pair of debossed ducts, originally situated further behind them, were brought forward and relocated directly on top, encompassing refashioned fins now running longitudinally rather than transversely, this allowed the airboxes, located behind the radiators to be rotated from a transverse to a longitudinal position, allowing better airflow from the radiators out through the secondary fins.

Additionally, further reconstruction of an already modified engine-bay cover, from a concept consisting of dual-raised sections and tri-ducting, to one that embodies a centre-raised section incorporating dual-ducting become another feature. Various redevelopments to the rear were made; most notably the introduction of a rear bumper extending outwardly from the lower-portion. These styling changes, particularly features such as the fin strakes within the primary rear-intake-ducts openings, appeared to mimic the Ferrari Testarossa , though providing crucial improved engine cooling.

Nonetheless it was only outsold by the QV model. The Anniversary edition was produced up until before being superseded by the Lamborghini Diablo. The United States is Lamborghini's biggest market and has traditionally been the largest market in the world for expensive cars such as exotic sports cars.

Americans purchased the Countach anyway, and individual consumers paid to modify each vehicle to meet United States Environmental Protection Agency and United States Department of Transportation regulations. While the Countach, Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer , and Range Rover were among the first such vehicles, the infrastructure they created allowed the "grey market" to reach 66, vehicles in In , with the introduction of the QV, a U.

Many owners removed the bumpers immediately or received their new cars without bumpers installed. The bulky appearance of the US specification bumpers were said to ruin the otherwise smooth lines of the body. American federal law exempts all vehicles older than 25 years from all design, safety, and emission regulations.

Therefore, any original Countach can be freely imported into the US and registered for unrestricted road use in states that permit such activity. In , Walter Wolf , a wealthy Canadian businessman and owner of the Wolf F1 Racing team in the s, purchased an LP; however, he was not satisfied with the LP's engine and asked Gianpaolo Dallara , the chief engineer of Lamborghini at that time, to create a special high-power version of the Countach. It was the code No. This model also featured upgraded wheels, Pirelli P7 tyres, flared arches, and front and rear spoilers, all features that would become integrated on future Countach's starting with the LP S.
