Take a close look at the Lamborghini Countach. It’s sleek and stylish, but with razor sharp edges and enough power to rip the tarmac from the earth. It’s lowered to almost ludicrous levels, has scissor doors that make both getting in and out almost impossible, a rear wing that leaves visibility as a pipe dream, and rear wheels so large only the spares from a tractor would fit. It was, without question, completely ridiculous.

And that’s exactly why we love it. It’s easy to forget with today’s delicately styled and ‘aerodynamically efficient’ design ethos that ‘insanity’ is – nay should be – the true basis of any supercar.

Don’t believe me? Ask Petrolicious. They seem pretty keen on it too.
