Most car enthusiasts associate the classic five-hole wheels and flared fenders with the old-and-new Countach variants, but the original 1974 model had neither. The fenders and wheels appeared in 1978 on the LP400 S, both of which were required for the car to handle a set of Pirelli P7 tires – the widest tires ever fitted to a production car at that time. The fenders are a driving force behind the Countach’s aggressive look, but actually many purists prefer the smooth sides and slimmer tires of the original LP400.
Of course, Kimble’s attention-to-detail on recreating the Pirelli’s tread is fantastic. For a special treat, however, take a close look at the photo to see welds on the frame rails, wear lines on the brake rotor, and even threads on the lug studs.
