Enjoy hearing and seeing the Countach LP500 in action

Credit: Original article published by LamboCars News.

We’ve all seen the official press photos from Automobili Lamborghini SpA on the recreation of the 1971 Lamborghini Countach LP500, the actual prototype from the Geneva Motor Show, and they look amazing, I really like the yellow prototype, but nothing beats actually seeing the car be driven, and hearing that amazing, custom-built V12 engine of this car, and that’s just what we managed to find on YouTube:

Thanks to AutoMotiveMike, who managed to record several startups of this unique recreation, this is such a pure design, it’s just amazing a wealthy collector was able to convince the factory to rebuilt the lost prototype just for him, and it’s obvious the car is fully driveable, it even has vertical radiators mounted lengthwise next to the bespoke V12 engine, rumor has it this recreation actually runs a 4.8-Liter engine, similar to the Countach LP500 S model, so not the 4971 cc (303 ci) experimental engine from the real 1971 prototype.
