Whereas Lamborghini created the word "Supercar" with its Miura in 1966, they were also responsible for the ultimate supercar - the Countach. Presented by Bertone in 1971, production started finally in 1974 with the LP400.

But the LP 400 S (1978 - 1982) put the term Ultimate Supercar to another level: different suspension geometry, ultra-wide wheels which required those characteristic wheel wells - the typical poster car for the 80's:  Here are 2 versions of this one: the red one is from Fabbri's Quattroruote collection (2007), the same car was re-issued again in the 2013 Vintage Auto collection (this time in a metallic orange color) - both made by Ixo:

I like that orange one for SURE!!!! The red is cool, but that orange just knocks your socks off... Wonderful models... I like the pop up headlights, too...

I have the one from Bburago, I think... Don't quote me on that, though... That one is 1/25 scale... They say it's 1/24, but it ain't... It was cheap, so I can't complain...

These are AMAZING!!!!

Why am I not really surprised about this? I knew you would like the orange one, JT.
