    There has been some discussion about a Countach I posted in the Showroom, and whether it is authentic. Thought Id bring the debate down here, where you guys really know your Lambo stuff!! I have no idea/opinion on whether its authentic, it sounded real, but like I said, Im not a Lambo expert. Here are the pictures I have of it:

    The bottom molding under the door is one piece and a dead giveaway.

    Also, no one runs those wheels except kit cars.

    They're not stock at all.

    Hope this helps.

    Pictures of the interior are the surest way to tell even on a good fake body.

    I'm certainly not a Countach expert... but, the tail lights look suspicious.

    I agree, seeing the back end made me really think it could be a fake.

    couldn't have said it better myself Tom.

    EVERYTHING is wrong.

    12 year olds could tell it's a fake in 2 seconds flat from 100 feet away

    this is ridiculous to even be talking about

    Even as a current two Lambo Diablo 6.0 owner, I couldnt tell if it was real or not. Unless I was into Countaches, I'd never know still. :)

    Of course this thing is a complete turd..... but it may not be that obvious to those who haven't pored over the shape of a Countach for hours.. If you saw it sitting next to a real one it would be very obvious.

    It always saddens me to see these completely absurd kit cars. The only ones that look even close have so much money in them they're not far off a real one.

    Countaches have a shape that I think must be very, very diffficult to duplicate, and if you try to squeeze the shape onto a Fiero chassis it looks like a midget wearing lingerie - it is just ridiculous !

    If you look at the picture where he is getting in the car, there are no "pop-up" headlights. DEAD GIVE AWAY.

    No "blundering idiot" -
    Until about 6 months ago, I wouldn't have noticed the difference - but after being on the various forums for several months, it is easy to spot them now -
    As Ben said, even a Lambo owner might not know all the details of another model Lambo -

    Well i have been into kitcars as well as real supercars my hole life now so i know which company built that body. I knew right then it was one of the Lamboshop kitcars i mean the body work and the interior of it gave it away.
    It doesnt take a real time expert to know if its a kitcar. The only way you will get fooled into thinking its real and thats if your not into cars in genral. If you guys need help on knowing if its a real supercar or replica please dont hestate to ask me.

    BTW most lamborghini replicas use Corvette parts including seatbelts.
