Vintage: The Lamborghini Countach
The Jaufenpass in the Italian Alps is the ideal launching pad for the Lamborghini Countach. The sporty number is like a cross between a car and a spaceship. Its market premiere in 1973 triggered an earthquake in the sports car industry - the design took everything to the extreme. Just 1.07 meters high, it's guaranteed to turn heads.When the revs tip 8000, the Countach hits its limit of 375 horsepower. In 1974, a top speed of 288 kilometers an hour was enough to be called the fastest car on the road. And even today, opening the car's scissor doors is enough to draw a crowd.
