  13. Beautiful Bleu Tahiti 1987 Countach Downdraft just shown at Villa D'Este Concours D'Elegance missing the blackout paint on the seams at the bottom of the sills on both sides, a fairly major omission for a car being shown at what's regarded as a prominent Concours event, unfortunately the majority of restored cars shown at Concours aren't fully correct-for-period.

  17. A colleague who saw the car and sent me the image above noted a few other items besides, that said Bleu Tahiti is stunning on any Countach, the presenters of this car claimed there are only two in this livery.

  18. What would be the correct style then? Seems to run from the top of the window to the bottom of the airbox
  19. It's correct.

    Without specifically referring to this particular car, I'll say that the most common minor incorrect detail with concours cars is the exhaust presentation (we have spent a couple pages addressing this earlier in this thread). However the major incorrect detail with restored cars is almost always the interior, which often features too-thick matte leather, stitching that doesn't resemble the original application, poor panel fitment, incorrect components, and padding doesn't mimic the original shape. The interior is the first thing check when I see a restored Countach, and more often than not it isn't authentic to period.

  23. :) Much better than the hundreds red car.
  24. Bravo for returning it to it's original stunning livery, if it hasn't been done already, get Cremonini to do the missing the blackout paint on the seams at the bottom of the sills on both sides, it's a very easy remedy.
