Eric, ive heard the same. Countach's are like trucks, on turns and around town, but like rockets in a straight line. Im sure audi improved upon thses alot when the Murcielago was designed. IMO the countach and diablo are some of the most exotic looking cars. It would be hard to pass one up. i think ferraris handle better, Lambos are heavy. Of couse so are most 12cyl ferraris, with the 575 weighing 4000lbs.
