The LP400 moved the game on from the Miura mechanically, to the next level. In a bid to satisfy Ferruccio Lamborghini’s wish for less cabin noise, its 4.0-litre, 375HP V12 engine was mounted longitudinally (‘LP’ denoting ‘Longitudinale Posteriore’), unlike the Miura’s transversely mounted unit.

The gearbox was unusually positioned ‚twixt driver and passenger, improving gearbox connection and vehicle balance and, without the later models’ comically wide wheels, flares and spoilers, the LP400 was the quickest Countach of them all, reportedly capable of nudging 200mph.
Just 150 (or so) ‘Periscopos’ were built, so named because of the small periscopic mirror installed in the original prototype’s roof to aid the frankly appalling rear visibility. Though the mirror was done away with, the rooftop tunnel remained on the early LP400s.
