The Lamborghini Countach is a sleek supercar that was produced from 1974 to 1990. The name comes from Piedmont, Italy.
Countach is an exclamation of surprise which is usually used by men when they behold a beautiful woman. This word is practically the Italian equivalent to the "wolf whistle."
While this car is no longer in production today, it is still one of the most popular. It has been declared as one of the most recognizable cars of all time. It can go up to 295 kilometers per hour.
The Lamborghini Diablo, the Countach’s predecessor, is a supercar that was manufactured between the years 1990 and 2001. The Diablo, which means ‘devil’ in Spanish, is one of the most popular cars of all time.
It was introduced on January 21, 1990 at a base price of $240,000. It could reach 60 mph in only 4 seconds. Its engine is located in the middle so that it would be more balanced.
In 1993, Lamborghini released a more specialized version of the Diablo called the Diablo VT. Instead of the rear-wheel drive, the producers introduced a new system wherein all the wheels could be controlled.
This new Diablo had a computerized suspension system which contained Koni shock absorbers, making the ride in a Lamborghini Diablo smoother than ever before.
The Diablo’s successor was the Lamborghini Murcielago, a comfortable two-seater supercar. This car follows the Lamborghini’s tradition of naming cars after bulls.
Murcielago was named after a bull that amazingly survived 23 sword strokes. The bull was said to fight with such passion that the matador or the bull fighter just decided to spare its life. It was then given as a gift to a famous bull breeder.
Murcielago then sired a long line of strong fighting bulls. The Murcielago runs for 335 km/hr. It is still in production today.
Indeed, nothing screams "power" better than a Lamborghini Car. The Lamborghini cars certainly do live up to their emblem, the bull, and there’s nothing better than being able to ride one.
