12.1 Feeding the Reparto Corse n.6: 1973 Lamborghini Countach LP400

A while ago fellow Reparto Corse N.6 founder Anthony of Coasts asked me for some shots I took at the Lamborghini's Centro Eccelenza, aka the museum situated inside of the factory. More specifically, about the two Countach's exhibited there, the 1973 Countach LP400 and the 1988 Countach 25th Anniverary.

I want spoil much details as you will be able to read them yourself in few days directly here at Zone Rouge 1, his spin-off project specifically about the Lamborghini Countach, created by one Nucio Bertone together by another Marcello Gandini.

So here are the shots I took about the green LP400, which is actually the first LP400 ever made, chassis #1120001. The car was originally red and used for crash test and homologation duties, but lately rebuilt and sold. In 2001 it was bought back by the factory, and here you go.

Enjoy the shots after the jump.
