More details

The 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopio is a prime example of the rear mid-engined, V12 sports car. Produced by Lamborghini, the LP400 Periscopio variant represents the epitome of the Countach's innovative design and engineering.

Conceptualized by the legendary Italian design house Bertone, the Countach LP400 Periscopio embodies the sharply angled "Italian Wedge" design language, which debuted with the Lancia Stratos concept car in 1970. The first public showing of the Countach was the Lamborghini LP500 Concept Car in 1971. This radical design, with its low, wide stance and bold, angular lines, set the tone for sports cars throughout the 1970s and '80s, leaving a lasting legacy in automotive design.

The Countach LP400 Periscopio is distinguished by its "cab forward" design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward to accommodate rear-mounted V12. This configuration not only enhances aerodynamics but also contributes to the car's aggressive and futuristic appearance.

This variant, in its vivid Arancio color, accentuates the car's dynamic form and commanding presence on the road. The Periscopio designation refers to the unique roof-mounted periscope rear-view mirror, a signature feature that further enhances the car's distinctiveness.

The interior of the LP400 Periscopio is a blend of luxury and functionality, with a driver-focused cockpit that emphasizes control and precision. High-quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship are evident throughout, reflecting Lamborghini's commitment to excellence.

In 2004, the Lamborghini Countach was recognized by American car magazine Sports Car International, ranking number three on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1970s and number ten on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1980s. The LP400 Periscopio, with its avant-garde design and cutting-edge engineering, played a significant role in earning these accolades.

The 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopio is not just a car; it is a piece of automotive history, a symbol of innovation, and a testament to the enduring allure of Lamborghini's design and performance legacy.
