Cannonball Run Lamborghini Countach
But the one think that sets its aside is that little wing on the front. To European eyes a modification, to the USA an actual requirement to meet road safety laws concerning the minimum height of car bumpers and 5mph impact laws. What it actually did was cement it in the sub-conscious of every petrol head that this was the perfect supercar.
The car its self is a series II Countach with the iconic V12 singing behind the driver. For this car it was also fitted with a 12 (yes 12) pipe exhaust. The car remained the ownership of Hawaiian Tropic from filming for the next 28 years, appearing in a few commercials and as an advertising gimmick. In 2008 however it was finally sold to a private collector who undertook a complete restoration which included returning the now maroon interior back to the tan one, follow the link below for the restoration and pictures of before and after.
