Lamborghini Countach video
EVO drives a Lamborghini Countach 1,200 miles across Europe – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We love modern day supercars – the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R, Audi R8 and so on. But nothing gets our motors running like classic supercars – the original performance machines that created the horsepower and speed wars. Case in point: the Lamborghini Countach. This Italian Stallion from the 1970s and 1980s is perhaps one of the most iconic supercars of all time, and having the chance to drive one these days is very, very rare.

Not so for EVO magazine's Harry Metcalfe. Recently, he was given the task of driving his Countach QV 1,200 miles from the French Riviera back to the United Kingdom. How does the classic supercar handle on such a long drive? Metcalfe videotaped the whole experience, and we encourage you to see for yourself in the just-under-10-minute video clip, after the jump.
