The Lamborghini Countach was designed by Gandini for Bertone in 1971. "Countach" in the dialect of Italy's Piedmont, is an expression of astonishment and amazement. The car featured a V12 4.9 litre Lamborghini engine positioned longitudinally (the LP designation comes from the Italian "longitudinale posteriore"). The gear box was mounted forward of the engine and protruded between the seats. THe doors opened upwards and forwards, similar to the Alfa Romeo Carabo. The Countach was produced from 1974 to 1991 and 609 cars were produced. The clean lines of the original concept car and LP400 were short lived, with wings and splitters added to the LP400S, LP500 and QV models.
