Monday 7th May 1990
After 19 years and 1997 cars produced, the Lamborghini Countach model went out of production giving way to the new Diablo model. Countach’s design pioneered and popularized the wedge-shaped, sharply angled look popular in many high-performance sports cars. It also popularized the “cab forward” design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward to accommodate a larger engine. In 2004, American car magazine Sports Car International named the car number three on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1970s, and listed it number ten on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1980s.
