1:18 Kyosho Lamborghini Countach LP500S Walter Wolf Edition

This page looks at the Kyosho model of the  Walter Wolf special edition of the Lamborghini Countach LP500S.

Walter Wolf was the owner of the Wolf Formula 1 racing team and he bought a Countach LP400 but it didn’t have enough ooomphh for him. He persuaded the factory to put in a larger engine and bigger tyres which meant that the wheel arches were also expanded.

For more details about the development of the car, please see Lamborghini Countach.

My Thoughts

I think at least one model of the Countach is essential for a collection of super cars. The iconic nature of the design is shown by how many varieties are still available from different model makers.

Personally I’m not so keen on the Walter Wolf version. I’m at the stage of trying to decide if I want one Countach (if so, which one) or two when the choice is simpler, an early LP400 where there is purity of design and a much later 5000QV which has more drama about it.

Is The Lamborghini Countach One Of The Sexiest Cars Ever Made?

It’s actually featured in the poll from 1960 to 74 and from 1975 to 89 but, since the Walter Wolf model is a preview of what’s to come, I’ve just listed the later one below.
