Re: Man builds his own race-ready lambo countach in the basement... FROM SCRATCH

Yeah, it definitely sounds like American V8 power that's for sure. I believe the original Countach he's copying used a similar bored and stroked engine too, though. Lambo engines didn't get into the exotic realm of current V12-eque stuff for a while after this car was last produced. But regardless of the drivetrain involved, it's just ridiculously cool that he built that entire chassis and body from SCRATCH.
I really wonder how this thing it handles though... I bet really well, as I'm sure this guy knows what he's doing in every aspect of automotive design. But probably a lot different than an actual countach.
The Countach was born with a V12, and so was the Miura before it. You may be thinking of the DeTomaso Pantera - it had a 351 in it.
This guy did an awesome job though, love the velocity stacks!
