The Lamborghini Countach LP500 S is the first prototype of the Countach sports car lineup.
- Text originally from Lamborghini Countach's Wikipedia article.
The development of the Lamborghini Countach was initiated by Ferruccio Lamborghini with the goal of creating a successor to the Lamborghini Miura. The Miura was widely acclaimed after its introduction in 1966, but by 1970 new competitors including the Ferrari Daytona had been released, and the Miura was showing its age.
After a year of intensive development work, the first Countach prototype, designated LP500, was shown to the public at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. Subsequently, the Lamborghini engineering team spent three years refining this radical prototype into the production-ready LP400 Countach, which debuted in 1974. The Countach would be an enduring success for Lamborghini and was produced in various versions from 1974 to 1990.
The Countach name originated in late 1970 or 1971, near the beginning of the LP112 project. Most previous and subsequent Lamborghini car names are associated with famous bulls and bullfighting, but the Countach broke with this tradition. The name originated from the word contacc, an exclamation of astonishment in the Piedmontese language.
