is that a countach?

  1. this looks a lot like a countach, (sorry if that's the wrong spelling) the holes on the tops? turn em into scoops, lower the decklid so u can see out the rear window (welllll kinda) and make the sideskirts go out, and the rims, i think its the countach concept
     
  2. Re: is that a countach?

    Yeah man, think you're right. Put a rear wing on that thing and you practicly got the Countach. But the Countach is much longer I think.

  3. Re: is that a countach?

    I agree. That looks like it could be one of the old countachs but then again we'll just let Lamborghini decide that.
     
  4. Re: is that a countach?

    yea, maybe, but i think that the countach looks a lot better. this car has the diablo's wheels<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: is that a countach?

    How can you say it has the Diablo's wheeels - wouldent it be the other
    way around? Because these rims are Lambo's TRADEMARK. If the guys ever
    changed them, plenty-0-people wouldn't be happy... Well, anyways, the
    Lamborghini Bravo concept was origanally based on the Urraco. And this design led to the 1978 Sibilo. But Bravo really didnt have much to do with countach. the Countach was based on the Muira's evolution
    in the 1960's.<!-- Signature -->

    More and better Bravo pics here:
    http://www.lambocars.com/framed/others/bravoi.htm

    The Bravo was intended and extensively road- and track-tested to become a less-unaffordable "little brother" to the big, pricey V12 Countach. Marcello Gandini, the original designer of the Countach (then working on Bertone's behalf for Lamborghini), intentionally designed the Bravo to have a "family resemblance" to his original, "sano" Countach design (before all that cr@p got added to it over the years, like those clumsy scoops and that ridiculously unnecessary rear wing... %^).

    Based on a shortened chassis and V8 drivetrain from the Urocco, they eventually decided not to produce the Bravo, instead favoring the simpler (and cheaper!) alternative of simply modifying the Urocco to become the Silhouette and later Jalpa (both basically a Urocco with no back seats and different upper-rear bodywork). If you've ever stood next to a Countach, you'll recall that its size and proportions are a lot tighter than pictures alone might lead one to think, so you can guess how much smaller (albeit a bit taller) the "baby brother" Bravo would have been -- roughly Fiero-sized, but with a Lambo V8 in back (can you say, "power-to-weight ratio"? %^)!

    Which reminds me, I've seen a car around Tucson here that looks like it might be a Fiero spaceframe (something about the size and side-window/door proportions...) wearing bright-yellow replacement body panels based on the Bravo (esp. those front and rear louvers...)

    Just my buck two-eighty...
