Mario Andretti's Lamborghini Countach

Supercars / Comments

The owner of this Lamborghini Countach that was onced owned by Mario Andretti also has a Diablo SV in his garage. Some guys just have it rough.

Back in 1987, legendary race car driver Mario Andretti took possession of this Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole. Powered by a 5.2-liter V12 engine, the car was specially built just for him, but for whatever reason, he opted to sell it after only a few years of ownership. Its next owner kept it in a private collection where it stayed for over 20 years until its current owner bought it. By that time, the car was showing its age and the new owner sent it in for a major restoration.

The finished result looks and sounds incredible, even when parked next to that Diablo Super Veloce in the garage. But to be perfectly honest, we'd still take the Countach over the Diablo if we had the choice. To this day, it's still one of our favorite supercars of all time. Which one's yours?
