Chris Harris Drifts a Lamborghini Countach

Who says that supercars are scary creatures, bent on driving you into the nearest lamp post or wall, just because you made the wrong split-second judgement. All those crashes we report on daily, that’s who, but it things sit a bit differently when somebody with the right set of skills is behind the wheel.
Chris Harris has just posted this very interesting clip on his own personal Youtube channel of him drifting a widowmaker of old - the Lamborghini Countach. This blast from the past pack a lot of heat but not the complicated electronics and the AWD system that the Aventador, its successor, offers.

The iconic name of the car is a sort of exclamation Italians make when refering to something magnificently gorgeous. The name stuck when Nuccio Bertone, first saw "Project 112" in his studio. All other models before it were given names derived or associated with bullfighting, Ferruccio Lamborghini being an aficionado of the sport.
