Thank You Lambo Chat and Contributors - Countach Book

Discussion in 'Lamborghini Discussion (not model specific)' started by path, Sep 13, 2021.

  1. We wanted to write and formally thank Lambo Chat and those of its members who have been kind and generous enough to provide information , anecdotes and photographs for our Lamborghini Countach book which has just been published ( Evro Publishing , ISBN : 9781910505632 ) .

    We estimate that this 336 page book with about 450 photos took us over 1200 hours to write - so about the same sort of time as it took Sant' Agata to construct a Countach in period .

    Planning for the book started almost exactly 20 years ago - on 26 / 5 / 2001 , the day we acquired temporary custodianship of Chassis 12399 ( a Rosso Siviglia 88 1/2 QV ) direct from its first owner via Lamborghini London .
    Even now ,12399 continues to delight us every day , as only a Countach can .

    Lambo Chat contributors were hugely helpful , and we have taken care to name every contributor in the Acknowledgements Page ( except for some of the most important contributors who asked for anonymity - a request that we have , and will , absolutely respect )

    We had contributors from 6 continents , including Valentino Balboni , Giampaolo Dallara , Umberto Marchesi and Tonino Lamborghini , but sadly the factory cat eluded us .
    Meeting these Countach midwives was the highlight of our research trips .

    This has been a labour-of-love that two eye-surgeons could never have brought to a successful conclusion without the invaluable help and guidance of you dedicated Lambo owners and enthusiasts , so thank-you again Lambo Chat .

    And next onto a book on the '' Holy Trinity '' - a book looking at the evolution of the wedge-shaped , South-North Bizzarrini mid-engined , Lamborghini flagships .
    Tracing the bloodline of the Countach , Diablo and Murcielago should keep us out of mischief for a bit .

  7. Must say I'm a bit disappointed in the book. The layout of the chapters was very odd and only a third of the book seemed to have any relevant information on the Countach and its development. Still looking forward to someone writing the definitive book on the car. Not sure all the pictures of the author and his partner was really needed, seemed more of an ego thing than a authoritative book on the Countach.
