Certainly one of the distinguishing Countach features – aside from its scissor doors – is the steeply-angled front that gave the car its futuristic look. Unfortunately, U.S. crash standards required the installation of a large front bumper that, for obvious reasons, wasn’t exactly flattering to the Lambo’s sharp lines. The car Kimble used for his cutaway was a U.S.-spec model, so the bumper made it to his final drawing.
In reality, Countach models bound for the U.S. were often ordered with the bumpers included but not on the car, leaving final installation to dealers. Of the instances where the bumpers were actually installed, many owners would then remove them to preserve the lines of the car.
