    My favorite is the one I have for many reasons beyond it's my car, but if I was to pick the end all be all in my mind it would be a S1 Bravo SW with a wing, and for that I'll use my vote.

    Agreed.

    FWIW, putting favoritism or personal ownership aside, in business, the Countach I am asked for these days by overwhelming majority is the Downdraft.

    Silver one Cats Exotics had would be the sexiest Countach I've seen... but I think I would get over the silver colour quickly and be very concerned when it came to bottoming out.

    Nobody plugs the Downdraft better than you (& perhaps Ellagirl) by your continuous protestations about the Fuelie being the same thing which only succeeds in drawing attention to and putting the spotlight on the Downdraft's obvious superiority.

    I really only ever plug the Downdraft or compare it to the Fuelie in response to futile attempts by certain Fuelie owners to minimize the differences between the cars, otherwise, the Downdraft plugs itself, in real tangible terms of specification, performance, desirability and value. For example, here's a poll which as of this date shows the Downdraft is the most favored variant of Countach of them all, and it is almost three (3) times as favored as the Fuelie
