Chris - I lusted for a Countach as well, for my entire adolescence - flash forward 20 some years and I'm walking around the corner to check out a local car show - a white Countach was sitting near the back, unmistakable - and you can always tell the Fiero bodied replicar versions, this one was real. As I walked around it and talked with the owner I was utterly shocked at the lack of refinement, lack of fit and finish, lack of sophistication, terrible wire-paths in the engine bay, etc, then to hear it requires a $12K service every 10K miles.....wow. He told me sometimes the doors won't latch properly and don't stay closed and that the front bonnet always opens crooked. Handmade alright.
Here's another white one for you.
