Do you want to know what it’s like to drive a Lamborghini Countach QuattroValvole from the glamorous shores of Monaco to the heart of the UK? EVO magazine has just done it and posted a video of the drive on YouTube.
Harry Metcalfe of EVO says the car is very powerful but after a long drive it is apparent just how much hard work is involved in driving it. He also mentions the brakes, which he says are nothing like today’s standards. He says the brake pedal needs to be pushed fairly hard and that there is little confidence in them.
Apart from the speedo that stopped working on the way, the classic Lamborghini Countach made the journey in one piece. It uses a 5.2-litre V12 engine, with four valves per cylinder – hence the QuattroValvole name – producing 339kW of power. It’ll manage the 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.8 seconds too, so even to this day the retro supercar is a very quick bit of gear.
Check out the video below to hear the awesome sound of the V12, and a more details of the journey.
