@japanophile25 the story about the name is quite funny! "countach" is an exclamation in the local language of Turin, the town where the Bertone's atelier was located (and where I live too, btw), used to express amazement, specially for a good-looking woman...
the legend tells that an employee of the coachbuilder shouted this word when he saw the prototype for the first time in the factory! I think it fits quite well to the look of the car...

easily chosen the Countach: it's the Supercar! it has the proper look, it's wide, full of useless wings and intakes, it's italian and it has 12 cylinder!
others cars in the mix may be great cars, but simply they aren't proper supercar... the Stratos was an homologation special rally car, the Esprit was a great handling sportcar, the Jarama and the Aston were GTs more than supercars.
the only one could match the Lambo is the Ferrari BB, but eventually, the Countach is unbeatable.
@JustinBeaverFever ahahahaha! it looks funny! probably not as fast as the tajima's, but funny for sure!

9 months, 2 weeks ago on THURSDAY SHOUTOUT : JAPAN VOL. 3
@HSSLTYO @tenpennyjimmy it was quite a pity to see the V6 "Busso" replaced by the GM-origin V6 in the 159... the GTAs with the original Alfa engine were incredible rides, altough a bit crazy (do you remember the top gear test of the 147 GTA?).
The Alfas are unique. Love them or hate them.

my dad used to own a 156 sportwagon... what a car! the illy sticker inside is so italian... niente come un buon caffè!
i'm from Turin and for me it's amazing to see how cars incredibly common here, like the Alfas or the Grande Punto (that i own...), looks great when spotted in the Japanese scene! @njoyamanjoko , what engine does it mount?
