The center section of the roof looks pretty wavy... You would think that the bodywork would be better on a megadollar car like that. I'd say model.

Actually the fit & finish on Lamborghini cars have always been pretty awful.

The fit of the glass on the left door looks a little fishy as do the louvers on top of the rear fenders. I am going for model without a lot of certainty.

I don't know Andy, most of the Countach models I've seen have better fit & finish than the real thing... :unsure:

From what I have heard, the first thing the American Lambo dealers do when they get a new car off the boat is to send it out for a complete buff, touch-up and detail job, so I assume that they are not all that great from the factory. But can they really have wavy sheetmetal like that...? You might be right, but it looks more like sink marks to me.

Didn't work for me... :P And if the bodywork on a Lamborghini is that bad, I'm not buying one. :D

I actually knew this one for sure. I know the car. There aren't that many LP400 Periscopes out there. This one was for sale not long ago.
