Lamborghini Countach Periscopica

I’m working on a fantastic new book about 50 years of the Lamborghini Super Cars.Most are being photographed in the studio, check out my portfolio to see a few preview images,but some we’ve had to shoot on location as with this amazing very early Countach P400. Designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone in 1974 it was a huge step forward in super car styling and was to remain in production for an incredible 16 years influencing many other automobile draughtsmen. This car was originally termed Periscopica as it was meant to have a periscope for rear vision but this proved impractical for production and it was dropped. I reckon Ferruccio would have approved of this pairing.
