Lamborghini Countach - Name

Name

The word countach (pronounced ) is an exclamation of astonishment in the local Piedmontese language — generally used by men on seeing an extremely beautiful woman.

The Countach name stuck when Nuccio Bertone first saw "Project 112" in his studio. The prototype was introduced to the world at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. Most previous and subsequent Lamborghini car names were associated with bulls and bullfighting.
