Okay... as vintage Audi 100s are cool, but certainly not as cool, it is now up to me to open the first real thread in this forum.
As I unfortunately don't own a Countach, I can't make a thread about the interior colour of my car, but I can post some pictures of this "childhood" dream car...
And I'd be happy, if a lot of you could chime in and post your favourite shots of this legend as well.




This picture pretty much founded my relationship to this car. I saw it around 1989 in a car magazine and simply fell in love.


BTW: does anybody remember Test Drive 1? I LOVED that game!!!

Sweet car. I don't really have any pics to post up or anything, but I too wouldn't mind owning one of these.

I remember Test Drive 1 on my old computer, lol, favorite car was the Lotus Esprit.
The Countach without a doubt, is my dream car. Black or bright red with the optional front wing mounted just forward of the headlights. Yep, a big ol'front wing.

Awesome guys. I got 3 huge countach pics on the wall in my office. I look at this thing every day for probably 20 years. The dream went to the side a bit, but now its back. I just looked at my first countach kit car recently. Any body know much about these Fiero conversions with these awesome bodies. But you are right- It's gotta have THE WING!!!!!

That car is dope.. How much did it go for?


It was about 2 years ago. If memory serves, it was about $112,500.00
Looks like I may have another one soon, I have a guy looking for a white 5000S QV, carbureted. I think I found it for him yesterday, still waiting on info on the car.

Re: First real topic in this forum. Yeah! (TRiAD)

i have been a fan of these cars for years. however, i still have no idea how to properly pronounce the word "countach." can anyone help me out by spelling it phonetically?

Re: Pronunciation

Depends on where you live.
The real Italians I've heard use it say "****-tash", so I use that one
but in the UK, it's usually "con-tack"...

They even spell it with an S..."Countasch"...even though it's "Countach" on the rearof the car.

Who knows...
