It never occurred to me until now how little rear-view visibility one would have in those cars.  Cool sounds though.

That is a very heavily patrolled stretch of road...  Sounds Wicked!

No countach thread is complete without the legendary racing driver Pescarolo hammering the countach on track at full pace. Seems surprisingly at home there according to him, except at 300km/h where it feels very light :)

If you are driving a Countach and are worried about what is behind you, you are not having enough fun.  Drive harder!

My Lamborghini was older than that (a 1969 front engined model) but the sound was similar - far better music than any rumbling, grunting V8, at least to my ears.
