80's Legends: Ferrari Testarossa & Lamborghini Countach

Feature

For those who don't require dual-clutches, electronic stability control, or any other driver's aids.

For anyone who grew up in the late 1980s and into the early 90s, there were only a few supercars out there that really mattered. Their posters were plastered to our bedrooms walls. We built plastic models of them, and dreamed that perhaps one day ownership will happen. The Ferrari Testarossa and Lamborghini Countach, to this day, serve as reminders of when supercars only came with manual gearboxes.

They were also void of electronic driving aids, and weren’t meant to be driven unless one had serious experience behind the wheel. Both were complicated machines, yet they rewarded those who learned how to master and tame them. There was no traction control, electronic stability control, or ABS brakes to save your ass. You were pretty much on your own. And that, aside from their iconic designs, is what made them truly special. Those fortunate enough to buy a Testarossa or Countach today are often times fulfilling their childhood dream. If only we could all be so lucky.
