Lamborghini at Modena 100 Ore 2020
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 20 October 2020 – Automobili Lamborghini took part in the 2020 Modena Cento Ore with two cars from its MUDETEC museum: a Jarama GTS and a Countach 25th Anniversary. Considered one of the most dynamic and exciting events in the classic car calendar, this year the event celebrated its twentieth edition with a route running from Rome to Modena, from October 10 to 15.
Still with its original Argento Luna (metallic silver) paintwork and grey interior, the Countach had a special driver behind the wheel: Emanuele Pirro, multiple world champion in the Turismo category, five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and two-time winner of the 12 Hours of Sebring. “I’d never driven a Countach before,” Pirro explained, and I fell in love with it. It is powerful with pure sensations, never filtered by electronic aids or even by common accessories such as power steering, and above all fast. Surprisingly, it is also comfortable, and although it has a fixed set-up, it certainly cannot be described as rigid. Being behind the wheel of a piece of motoring history was a memorable experience.
The car is a Tahiti Blue model with natural leather interiors: a fast and comfortable car, it is an example of the perfect grand tourer of the 1970s, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
