The Lamborghini Countach
Bobby Seaux, founder and owner, chose his dream car, the Lamborghini Countach, as the logo for his business. The revolutionary Countach design was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in 1971. The LP400 Countach and its exotic 5.0 liter V-12 powered engine was a first of its time. The body design utilized many flat trapezoidal aluminum surfaces and large air intakes with the automaker’s most memorable design being the flip up, scissor style doors which have come to be known as “Lamborghini doors”. The LP400’s name stood for “longitudinal posterior 4.0 liter” to signify the placement of the engine being in the rear and the size of its engine. The engine’s 370 horsepower were transferred to the car’s back wheels as well. The Countach's top speed was 180 mph making it a marvel of its era and continued to stay in production until 1990. Lamborghini has since come to be known as one of the automotive industry's premier brands.
