The Lamborghini Countach, in any of its versions, is one of the most iconic cars of the 80s. Almost every important die-cast manufacturer has made it in one scale or the other. Also has Bburago, which had impressive reproduction in bigger scales.
But in this case, we are focusing in the 1:43 models. I own two of them, the first one in White and the second one in red.
The White model was produced between 1988 and 1990, and this version in particular, with that decoration has refence number 4137. It is a Countach 5000 S.
Because the car is amazing, it has been in production as a toy during many many years. The red model is much more modern as we can tell from the wheels. Even the base has changed. The red model’s base is much more elaborated and include the Lamborghini name in its original font.
