    Those markets have existed for years, that said, even those who get it might not choose to participate in them, nothing is for everyone, of course.

    No rear fog lamp mounted! Seems a MY87

    It is indeed a 1987 Downdraft, perhaps the rear fog-lamp was never mounted, however it is missing it's rear number/license-plate holder which was applied to all cars.

    Another one at a circuit, this time it's Percy's FLA12874 @ Zandvoort.

    Which begs the question: how many of you have taken your Countach on the track and pushed it as hard as you dare?

    Let's say, within sensful limits... many times. Alone in Anneau du Rhin about 100 laps. Also twice the Viva Italia Event in Assen.

    Hard on the tires? Yes, of course...

    Thank you for that comment Pierre, it matches what I learned which is that in the second half of the 80s this car was seen in Germany, Italy, France, Monte Carlo and more besides, I wonder what it's story is?
