Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari 512 TR: Dream Cruising

The Lamborghini Countach and the Ferrari 512 TR come from an age when building a supercar didn't involve many of the compromises seen nowadays. There's never a bad time to evoke the 80s', so today we're bringing you a recent footage that sees the two driving together.

The video below brings us a silver Countach and a 512 TR dressed in the classic red hue. Nevertheless, the Lamborghini is a bit more special. This is the US-spec Countach, which was fitted with fuel injection, a first for Lamborghini. The measure was aimed at reducing emissions, but it also meant that the V12 engine produce less power than the carburetor-fitted version on the Euro-spec models.

The owner of the example you see here found a set of original carbs and made this gift to his engine.

The clip shows the two enjoying some time on the road together. The ride starts in the city and moves on to the highway, where the 24 cylinders can be put to good use.
