    I can easily top this, had to set back since that was a wineyard gravel road.

    For the same article Rosinski also used this Downdraft to check and make sure the performance numbers were honest, AUTOCAR UK used this car as well, some of these Press Cars had hard (or fun) lives being subjected to the limits of their potential often

    I drove the Alpine Corp. Downdraft yesterday after suspension, brake sorting and the fitment of new P7s. Wow. In my 20 plus years of ownership of this car Ive never experienced it driving this well. The new P7 have fantastic grip and feel.

    As I say they are transformative to the car's handling, meanwhile Pirelli created a Countach page http://www.cinturato.net/pirelli-cinturato-p7.html

    Thank you Joe - very excited to join the family of Countach owners. Whilst the triple-white poster I had was a 500S, it was the DD QV I read about in the magazines and the one I always wanted. Cannot wait to see it in person - will only be the second time I have ever seen one I believe. When I was a teenager in the 80s, I got to sit in the Alpine car they bought to New Zealand for the car show - I think that's the only time in my life I have seen one in the flesh. The second time I see one, I'll be driving it!

    I wonder if that is the same car I sat in in the mid 80s in New Zealand? Alpine brought one to NZ for a car show, and for $20 you could have your photo taken in it - once I got in I looked everywhere except at the camera to prolong my experience and take it all in.

    My uncle took me to the Chicago auto show in the early 80's. I remember a white Countach at the stand that I could not keep my eyes off of. I never left the stand, my uncle asked the sales person if he could keep an eye on me because he wanted to see the rest of the car show. I knew every statistic on the car from a to z. At one point the sale person wanted to take a break and get some food. He asked me to run the stand while he was gone. It was a dream come true. He said you know more info than I do. Just don't let anyone sit in the car but please feel free to sit in the car and enjoy. Today, I thank that man for what he did. He should know that this is why I went down the Lamborghini road and also why I have a white Countach and some others. Thank you Sir
