A fella in the car club had a 5000S version with the big rear wing, nice car but horrendously heavy clutch, too wide for the interesting? Scottish country roads and I could keep up(or be quicker) in my Honda S2k, although mine did not sound nearly as good. Interesting to reverse,!!!!!
Artist Fabian Oefner came to Sant’Agata Bolognese and created one of his great piece of art using Lamborghini Miura, getting into the entirety of a masterpiece. The result is “Disintegrating X Lamborghini Miura”, an immersive experience inside the parts that make up our legendary Super Sports Car. https://lam.bo/LamboIG_GP
@Pitfitter446 easy to keep up with these old machines (especially a vintage Lambo) in anything remotely modern. Lamborghini were notoriously horrible actual drivers cars, but my god would I love one. Those intake flaps on the side are just awesome, even though you know the motors are always going to fail.
You know the rear wing was not factory fitted ever. The car suffers front end lift issues, so any rear wing would have been disastrous, so the wing has zero downforce. I can’t recall how it originally got on a customer’s car, but when others saw it they needed it. Lamborghini could not afford to get cars passed tests again so the option was never officially offered.....however it could still be ordered although was fitted after production.....I think in the car park!
You're talking about the Countach, right? I knew about the front-end lift, but never heard about the wing before.
Here's an interesting read about the Countach.
Here's a must read
Ah yes Walter Wolf. I couldn’t recall the full story but knew it was a customer and quite a weird but very cool story.
Great times for cars back then and all sorts of shenanigans going on for production and race cars.
When I was living in Amsterdam I was shopping on my favourite shopping street, P.C. Hooftstraat, which is a one way street with luxury brand shops lined up along each side. A Countach starts chunttering at almost idle down the street with its aggressive thudding exhaust note reverberating off the shop fronts and around the street. I was in heaven in that moment.
Here's the latest!
Me in a Lamborghini on a test day. Old pic, the beard has returned since then.
You missed the most important detail, which watch did you wear?
It was probably my Carrera since I went along that day in a porker and may not have owned my Monaco then, need to look at any pics for evidence. Nice driving day wife decided we should stick to the soft top we have.
Lamborghini had the best sound that day btw.
2.4 minutes in and I'm already screaming internally about the irritating and totally unsuitable 'background muzak'
LET US HEAR THE CAR!!
^ Fast forward thought the video. That's what I did!
I just saw the Miura for the first time last month, such a beautiful machine in orange!
It’s good to be old(er) sometimes, these and others were the poster cars of my teenage years, and if you were very lucky one might be seen on a rare occasion, simple joy. A neighbour had an e type, usually the most exotic car in town.
Just for fun
